I hope this question isn't getting to personal but I really don't know of a different way to get this information.
I am currently undiagnosed but it's really looking more and more like ALS (not like I'm a dr. but it's a gut feeling).
I'd like to ask the PALS a few question about money. Were you well off when you were diagnosed? What did you do for work and money after the diagnosis? How long are you able to work for? I know every case is different but...
I make fantastic money right now (100k +) but I"m afraid that very soon I won't be able to work anymore if this is indeed ALS. I'm only 35 so we havn't accumulated a large enough nest egg to sustain us so I'm at a loss as to what to do. If my wife is supposed to take care of me full time and she can't work what are we to do after that? There must be government (canada) based subsidies for people with conditions such as this right?
Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated and if it's too personal, please don't answer.
