    Hello @Leebrom and a big warm welcome to our online community.  How's it going with you today?  Is it sunny in Manchester?

    Just so I know I have the right condition, do you mean Myasthenia gravis (MG)?

    @Leebrom :D I am fond of Manchester! Had many a nice weekend break there, plenty to do.

    I've had a look through some of our old threads in which members discuss their experiences of MG, here's some you might find interesting and possibly want to comment on:
    While also feel free to have a nosey around our different chat categories to see if you can help anywhere through your life experience with MG.

    How are you managing your condition?  Is there any specific information that would help you?  Or are you a part of any support groups?  I'm guessing you're probably already aware of myaware, the charity dedicated to care and support of people affected by myasthenia.  But on the off chance you hadn't heard of them, there's a link.  

    I've also amended the title of your thread to help others with MG spot it easier and moved it to our Invisible impairments category.  Just to check, do you think of MG as an invisible impairment?  If not, and you'd prefer it moving to a different category please let me know

    Best wishes and I look forward to talking some more :)
