Elyse Bruce started Idiomation in January 2010. The single parent of a child with multiple disabilities including Asperger Syndrome (an Autism Spectrum Disorder), Myasthenia Gravis (an incurable life-threatening neuromuscular autoimmune disease), and a number of minor-in-comparison disabilities, disorders and diagnoses, she started Idiomation to help others to better understand idioms.
Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease characterized by varying degrees of weakness of the skeletal (voluntary) muscles of the body. The name myasthenia gravis, which is Latin and Greek in origin, literally means "grave muscle weakness." With current therapies, however, most cases of myasthenia gravis are not as "grave" as the name implies. In fact, most individuals with myasthenia gravis have a normal life expectancy.
