Bethany K: Living With Muscle Disease.

Living with a muscle disease.


My daughter created a youtube channel for me and video taped 3 videos of me explaining and describing living with a muscle disease. One of them is 10 minutes long but the others are shorter.

I made the videos because one of my friends, that has Central Core Disease like I do, told me that her husband felt she was just being lazy. He felt she just needed to try harder. He also felt she should be more positive. I made these videos specifically for her to show her husband that other people have affects from this disease that they cannot control. There are many sides to having a disease. I made this video a few years ago. Much has changed since. I have embraced the things that I CAN do and appreciated them far more! I have had much more loss since creating these videos. Much more atrophy and much less ability to do the things I was able to do in these videos. But I feel more blessed now in the fact that it is a sheer miracle that I can do what I can with the amount of weakness, atrophy, and pain that I have. It is my hope that the videos I made can help individuals that have chronic illness feel UNDERSTOOD AND VALIDATED. And also that their loved ones will see that they are not the only ones.
