Welcome angela

i'm new to the forum too. not so new to living with a spouse with als. i've found (when i do have time to sit down and read the forums) a wealth of information, oodles of empathy and a fabulous sounding board. keep the lines of communication open to them. it's sooo hard to talk about it at first, cause it's like you make it real but talking about it. you just want to make it go away. but there will come a time when they will want to talk, and i know it''s helped me when i know someone is going to be receptive to me just talking it out without trying to "fix" it for me. a night with a couple of rum and cokes and a box of kleenex doesn't hurt either.
