My name is Nicole. I am 29 years old and a mother of a 7 year old son who is moderate ADHD and has mild learning disabilities. My son has a good heart and is very kind and respectful. He has a hard time in school and he is always bored out of his mind sometimes. I have bought videos games and toys galore. I used to be able to take him out to the park and things like that but now things have changed because I was diagnosed with a rare nuero-muscular disorder called Myasthenia gravis. I causes me to be very weak and sometimes I have to have help just to get out of bed to go the restroom. I am trying to adjust my life but I have to be extra careful because this affects my lungs as well. I cant really take him to public places because I have to monitor where I go because of viruses and things like that. It affects my immune system and I cant get sick or else I have to make a trip to the hospital because most of the meds on the market can kill me because of the disease. I need help and support because I am losing my mind.
