I’m so honored to be named MG Walk Hero for Wisconsin. I was diagnosed in 1973 after going to many doctors. No one could figure out what was wrong with me. I had double vision, could hardly smile, talk or swallow. I had my tonsils removed and even throat resconstruction, thinking that would help. Of course it didn’t. I was finally connected with the right doctor, a neurologist, who diagnosed me. I was so relieved to finally have a name for my disease. I had a thymectomy in 1974. I was so weak by the then I had a tracheotomy and put on a breathing machine. After many days in ICU and in the hospital I was finally released. I was starting to feel stronger and finally went back to work. I still had some symptoms and stayed on medication for MG.
Then sometime in the mid 1980’s, by the grace of God, I went into remission. No more meds! I was feeling great! It lasted till about 2003. My symptoms were coming back. I managed to work till 2005 then retired. Since then I am on Mestinon and getting plasmapheresis every three weeks.
My goal is to inform as many people as I can about Myasthenia Gravis.
