Supporting someone with MG
It can be hard to know what to do to help a family member or friend who has been diagnosed with MG. Some ideas from the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) are:
- offer to perform specific tasks,
- learn as much as you can about MG, and
- be a good listener.
At the MGFA website, you will find the document: Providing Emotional Support for Patients with Myasthenia Gravis.
Family members, caregivers and friends are welcome to attend mgMN support group meetings with their loved one who has MG.
