I went to Starbucks with my friend who is a counselor on Saturday. During our discussion she encouraged me to journal my thoughts, feelings, etc., during this journey toward a diagnosis and beyond. I thought that the blog feature here would be a great place to start.

Blog, blog, blog , blog, a wonderful blooog, a wonderful blog! (Sung to the tune of 'Spam' by Monty Python) A few folks have asked what I take for vitamins as recommended by my neuro. (One of them...) So here's a re-print from my other blog: I was diagnosed in 1993. It was recommended to me to take MASSIVE amounts of anti-oxidant vitamins. The neurologist that suggested this approach said that this was the best approach as there was a “school of thought” that ALS was caused by the motor neurons being destroyed by free radicals.

I used a new feature of the website called 'Infractions' with mixed results yesterday. For those of your that aren't aware, the infraction system is a simple tool used by moderators to track issues with members. Each infraction has a number of points associated to it; if a user reaches a certain number of points their account is temporarily removed, or permanently removed. I doubt the system will be used very often, but for those of you worried about what you can and can't do, please read our terms and conditions which is available as a link at the bottom of every website page.

NEW FEATURE: Everyone Gets a Blog!

My Blog will be pretty boring I'm sure, but that doesn't mean yours will be! Everyone with membership has access to a create their very own blog (that's you)! You get to specify who gets to read it, who gets to add comments to it, and best of all, you're in charge of what gets posted to your blog, and whether people can comment on your blogs posts.Want to know what a blog is?
