Living Well: Myasthenia Gravis Can’t Stop the Travel Bug

If you are living with myasthenia gravis (MG) or any other rare disease or medical condition, you may have the travel bug, and travel insurance may be worth the investigation.

Let’s face it; people are more concerned about their jobs and livelihood now more than ever. In a bid to selfishly guard our time, we lose some important things in our lives. We need to work, yet we need to get off being busy and experience a vacation, too. Vacations are not a luxury; they are a necessity for a well-balanced, healthy life–especially when you have a chronic illness such as myasthenia gravis.

A travel insurance plan can cover you for unexpected costs incurred before or during your trip, so costs are less likely to come out of your own pocket.
  • A travel insurance plan can reimburse you for the pre-paid, non-refundable portions of a trip if you need to cancel or interrupt your trip for a covered reason.
  • A travel insurance plan can also include medical evacuation coverage (the price of which may cost upwards of $100,000) and medical expense coverage, plus reimbursement for lost, damaged or stolen luggage and personal effects.
  • Most travel insurance plans also include 24/7 assistance services to re-book flights and hotels on your behalf and act as a personal travel assistant while you are away from home.
As with all insurance plans, always carefully read each DOC (description of coverage) to learn the boundaries of your coverage before purchasing the plan. Click here for a myasthenia gravis travel insurance option at

Quality of life is dependent on how you appreciate yourself and those who are around you. It could be with yourself, family, or friends; but only vacations from a busy schedule can offer you time to appreciate the people around you. Having a vacation offers you an opportunity to truly think about those things that matter. Whether it is by reflecting or planning, vacation gives you a sense of peace and warmth you will never get in a workplace environment.

Work, school, life in general, are stressful. Taking a well-deserved break from a hectic life is healthy, revitalizing and keeps you from losing your mind. (If you haven’t already lost it from everyday stress).

It is good to get out and go camping or spend the night on a beach somewhere, as long as you’re having a good time it doesn’t matter where.
