Episode 113: Polymyositis Thriver Michole J

Overview

Michole J lives with rare muscle disease polymyositis (PM), which falls under the umbrella of muscular dystrophy. PM is an uncommon inflammatory disease that affects the entire body — and while Michole began to exhibit symptoms in her late 20s, she was diagnosed at age 30 with the rarest form. Living with the condition create mobility challenges, from climbing stairs, lifting objects, raising her arms, and even becoming rapidly exhausted from any kind of movement, to breathing issues due to the spread of inflammation to her lungs. Michole’s mission is to bring more awareness to invisible illness, reminding us that we may not all have the same illness (or any illness at all), but that our struggles are still the same.
