HI Dianne

My brother suffered from als for just over 1.5 years he had the bulbar type although he never had his memory involved at all. He was quick and alert till the day he passed, I have not heard of the mind being involved as far as als is concerned but maybe some of his meds may be causing the forgetfullness. I am not sure but perhaps someone else has some experience in this area I have been trying to keep up on the sites and have not read any areas where the mind has been involved. The often cruel part of als is that while the body shuts down the mind remains clear and sharp leaving our loved ones trapped in their body. Good Luck and welcome here. Joy
