Myasthenia Gravis exercising

I was diagnosed in 2003 w/MG. I have generalized muscle weakneww, double vision, slurred speec, droopy eye and fatigue.  I had a thymethomy in 2003.Since then my med regime has been 1500mg of Cellcept 2xdaily, 75mg mestinon 5xdaily and IVIG 2gram per kilogram monthly.  I had a full blown crisis in 2006.  I have neve been in remission but Ihad found a way to exercise in the pool.  Last month they closed the pool so now I don't have any form of exercise.  I would like to know what would be a safe form of exercise for me because I need to continue my weight loss program.  If I bought some exercise equipment to do exercises at home and not have to drive afterward I would be able to rest immediately afterward.  But would theis cause any other problems for my muscles that are already weaken?  would I be doing a disservise to myself instead of helping myself?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
