You need a few more posts first, then you can PM people. You can also PM me your number and my wife and I will call. We do this alot and would love to help.

If you click on a persons name, a drop down menu will reveal itself and one of the choices will be send a personal message.

There should be a social worker associated with the ALS clinic. I personally had a great therapist. Felt good to bounce things off of her. This forum is awesome as well, but I'm more of a typer, not a talker. I'm quite introverted in person, actually. Hang in there, Sandy. It's scary and tough, but you will stay strong. xo Also, I know in a prior post you offered up your email number. Instead of a pm, you could just put it on here for Joel or Hoping to email you for the information.
