I'm asking for deep prayers

I cannot say that I have ever been in a situation like this, not am I religious. I can tell you what I would do in this situation though, already what I hope I would do,  considering all of us will run out of time on this earth at one point.

Here is what I would hopefully be able to do,  if I was in a similar situation:

1) Starting now, plan as if there is no tomorrow. Spend every second of every day telling your loved ones how special they are, and how much they mean to you. Spend as much time with them as well, because tomorrow could be anyone's last day,  theirs included.

2) Mend any relationships that may have ended,  that you wish hadn't,  or wish had ended on better terms. Peace of mind is something that can do wonders,  no matter the situation. 

3) Let go of any hate in you. That Amy be easier said than done, part of you I'm sure is very angry that thus could potentially be happening to you. Do your best to cleanse your soul of negativity and unhappiness, and bathe your soul in love and positivity.

4) Do your best to just live in the now, and 100% forget about the worries of today and tomorrow. 

5) Make a list of everything you have ever wanted to do in life, and all the places you've ever wanted to visit, and do one thing each day,  or make progress towards something on the list, everyday.

6) buy some falcons tickets, or season passes if you haven't already. Clearly this tram means slot to all of us,  so just enjoy doing everything you love on a daily basis.  

7) Truly live like there is no tomorrow. I don't mean everyday will be extravagant and luxurious ,  but do your best to never lead another day that will lead you to regrets at the end of the day.

8) spend some time with some people who have shortened clocks as well.  Talk to eachother,  and really spend some time with some people that are trying to make the most out of their time as well. IMPORTANT: Ask them(or someone you love) to make a list of things they want to do before their time on earth is done,  and help them/others achieve their wishes as well. It will feel better than crossing things off your list,  because you would be making a powerful impact on another human being,  which I think is the most amazing thing someone can do in this earth. 

9) similar to #8, but just do your best to make an lasting impact on other people's lives. We will all run out of time at some point, and do your best to leave a meaningful impact on already one person,  if not many more, so that your presence on this earth will be felt,  even after your gone,  whether that's 5 or 50 years. 

10) death is always going to be a scary thing,  but I think if everyone is at peace in their mind,  and have truly rid themselves of any regrets,  than death is far less scary than you would have ever imagined. I think that's why some people are not afraid of death at all. That's because they understand that it is inevitable,  and they are at peace by filling their hearts with love, leaving behind any negative thoughts or emotions,  and doing their best to leave an impact on other people's lives.

When the day comes for everyone on earth , there is only one thing we can take with us to the grave. Not money. Not cars. Not anything physical. The only thing we can 100% take to our graves is the impact, feelings, and memories we have left the people behind us with. The 100% raw emotions and love that others will remember us by. That's why I said making amends and impacting the youth,  or other who may be struggling, will give you most joy. Simply just make a daily goal of helping another human being. 

I also wanted to say that I love you,  along with everyone on here. Everyone has good and bad in them,  and love and similar emotions is what I believe the key is to everyone doing their part in making the world a better place. Peace and love sir.

 

Thanks. I'm going thru low and high points. One second I want to do exactly planning for the future, next I'm crying. Then I'm off to being afraid of the unknown and freaking out. 

I just study I knew what was going on and what to expect. Instead of this guy leaving it on my voicemail like this.

MF, first of all, I want you to know that I don't pray much, but I certainly will for you tonight.

Secondly, I am appalled that a doctor would leave such a message, instead of seeing you face to face.  You need confirmation of this diagnosis.  Go to a neurologist.

The EMG test is very sensitive for MG but is not specific.  You can try some rudimentary physical tests, but it is best that you see a specialist that knows what he/she is doing.  One such test is to have someone hold resistance (wrist/forearm) while you repeatedly flex your elbow (like doing biceps work out).  MG typically causes an increased weakness when the exercise is repeated.  Again, this is a rudimentary test. 

The fact that your eyelids do not droop is kinda weird for MG, so once again, see a specialist.  

I hope you are OK.  

I did a test looking up abs my eyes did not get worse. 

I did a ice pack test. And see saw double the same. 

So I feel this doctors just an ***. And I don't have it. 

Also read that a blood test and efge (I forget). But those test prove if you do or not.

Hey Mash. I’m sorry you got this news, especially in a voicemail. 

 

My wife has myasthenia gravis. It is currently in remission and she is doing well. It started in 2007, when she was 34. It only affected her eyes and never progressed further. It was diagnosed by a neurologist after numerous tests. For her, it was double vision in both eyes that occurred in the mornings and would clear after 30 minutes or so. Fortunately, it went into remission on it’s own after a few months and has never come back. One thing you need to be aware of is that this condition can be affected by anesthesia as well as the antibiotic Cipro. My wife had to make sure her surgeon and the anesthesiologists were familiar with her condition prior to her last two surgeries. 

She says to stay positive and not let this get you down. Exercise, eat healthy and keep doing the things you love. We’ll both be thinking of you and if you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to PM me.

I can't fathom what your going through, but you **** well bet I'm hoping for the best. My grandpa always told me to plan for every outcome.  We are all hoping for life to break our way,  but life just doesn't do that sometimes. I don't mean that with any harsh intent. I just want everyone to know that life is not guaranteed, making the most of it right now,  is what everyone on this earth should be focused on,  instead of waiting til it's too late. I lost my grandma last year to dementia, and I still have some guilt for not going to see her on her death bed.  I do and I don't.  I justify it by telling myself I simply did not want to see her like that, and that it wasn't her. I still feel like I should have been there for her.  One thing my grandpa reminds me is that anyone should never dwell on the past,  because It can never be changed.  I love you mash,  even though we haven't had to many encounters on here(mainly because I didn't have an account for a long time,  and was just a reader), I could always respect you because Sven though I didn't always agree,  you always backed up your arguments and claims with science and truly believed what you were saying.  I have loved your mash reports over the years,  and sincerely want them back,  but understand if you got other things going on. Like I said, I'm not religious,  so saying I will pray for someone doesn't seem right to me,  because I don't pray for people. I am going to **** well hope for the beat though, and also recommend that you live your life as if the worst will happen. God forbid the worst case does happen, it will give you a better perspective to cherish life,  and the ups and downs it will bring. I'd give up a few fingers or a hand right now to make sure you were OK,  but all I can do I say I love you,  and everyone else on here, and I am going to hope for the best. Spend time with your loved ones right now,  and we will all be here for you as well.  I've never sent a heart emoji to a dude before lol,  but there's a right time for everything.... <3 Mash. We all do.  Life can she ****** as duck sometimes,  but we must make the most of it,  or it will fly by in front of ALL of our eyes. This goes for everyone on here. My one wish is that we get a SB in honor of your Fandom ASAP,  and all the falcons fans dealing with a stressful personal life right now. It won't make anything go away,  but it's a memory we all deserve,  and one none of us have ever gotten.

BRAVERY

COURAGE

2 qualities I tell my team leaders that they and their squads possess before they roll out. 

Fear breeds "focus". It's necessary. Bravery and Courage is the fantastic quality that moves you forward IN SPITE of your fears. 

You, my friend, have already proven that you've possessed these qualities your entire life. Maintain your course and ROLL OUT!!!!

THANK YOU!!!! 

I know this eye doctor says the results were positive. but during the EMG testing the tech even pulled his doctor in there and they told me they could not see that I do or do not have. So I am unsure why the eye doctor says I do? 

Furthermore I have no eye dropping. 
I did the ice pack test and seeing double stayed the same.
I did the look up test (Simpson test) where you look up for a few minutes. and I never had my eye lids droop. They stayed the same. 

So from those two test, I really feel like I do not have it. 

lastly my double vision is ALWAYS, and only when I look left. Doesn't matter what part of the day or if I wake up in the middle of the night. I always see double when I look to the left. 
- If I look straight my eyes do fine. If I look to the right my eyes do fine. 
- Only when I look to the left do I have double Vision. And it is because my right eye jumps up. 

If you do not mind. Can I send you see what your wife thinks?

 

Thank you again.

Wow.

 

First, let me say that I had no idea that an eye doctor would diagnose this. When my wife’s double vision started, our first stop was to our eye doctor. After examining her, he recommended we go to our regular physician as he found nothing physically wrong that was causing the double vision. Our physician ordered several tests, but recommended we see a neurologist as he believed that was the cause of her double vision. Understandably, we were freaked out as we imagined the worst. 

Our neurologist put her through many tests...myelogram, MRI, CT scans, etc. He suspected myasthenia gravis, but wanted to be sure. We found out that my wife still had her Thymus gland, like most myasthenia patients, which was causing the autoimmune symptoms. She is fortunate as hers never advanced beyond ocular symptoms and went into remission voluntarily. 

We watched the video and can see what you’re describing. My wife’s eye lids never drooped, either. 

I would strongly advise seeing your regular doctor as well as a neurologist if you suspect you have myasthenia. 

Prayers for you, bud. And please message us with any more questions or concerns. We’ll be glad to help or share our experience if it will help you.

Prayers going up for you brother. Getting old is certainly not for the weak spirit. I just had a diagnosis of severe arthritis in the right hip and needs replacement. 

Sorry. 

My mom had it in both knees. After surgery she revived good. Except she was allergic to the bandaid. But they fixed that once she let them know.

Keep your head up high and never let anything  get you down. The Most High makes the decision on life and death. I'm  going  through  a lot myself,  but I stay focused on the things I have control over and I keep my faith  at an all times high. Let your Faith be the key for miracles do happen. My prayers goes out to you and your family, my brother please  stay prayed up, for you are worthy.

I will be battling this all week of FEAR. I will see a specialist on Friday to go over everything. 

I am praying that I am 100% find and it's just a lazy eye. And that my anxiety/ocd will be healed as well with prayer. 

Thank you everyone who has prayed. And also @Goober Pyle for reaching out to me. It's warming to talk to someone who knows some in this, as well knows how my anxiety is.

 

...... I cannot stress this enough. But prayer is what has helped me the most. Because I feel peace. And sadly the snake, demons, whatever sneak back in from time to time. But with God they go away. Some fights are easy, some are hard. But it's always warming to know deep down that God is always with me.
