Default New Member surprised by support !

Hi there,
Just browsing and very much surprised by the support that some of you guys are giving to complete strangers. I hope that i get the same kind of response. It is funny how niave and egnorant we are when it comes to diseases.
I did not know one thing about ALS until my father was diganosed 2 years ago. It has been very hard to except hearing this sort of news. I have come to terms and realize that time is short for him. My mother does not want to except this disease, I know how hard it is for her being my fathers caregiver, all the family is out of province living. I have been trying to get her to read the ALS manual, she refuses saying that she would rather not know and wants to take one day at a time. I pity her for her lack of knowledge and not knowing what to expect with this disease that is soon going to take my fathers life.
