The holidays can be a stressful time for anyone, but this time of year can present unique challenges for people with myositis.

Megan McGowan and Lauren Burgess, occupational therapists with extensive experience working with the myositis community, joined MSU together with myositis patients for a conversation about getting through the holiday season.

Topics we discussed include managing fatigue, travel, meal preparation, conversations with family about myositis, and coping with holiday stress.

Stay tuned for the next discussion with Megan and Lauren.
