    I hope you enjoy your last days of teaching. Do you plan to retire or is it just end of school year? I have not worked since Feb. 2009 but I worked as a forman in Machine shop doing custom mold and machining of many different types of plastics. I worked there for 32 years and was forman for about 15 years. I am pretty much done so I guess I can say I am retired.

    I hope the bath goes well. Yikes, I had to pick up our dogs and put them in the tub...and then hold them away from the side, as they always wanted their heads to hang out of it... hahaha and tell them "NO Shake!", while grabbing big towels to cover them with at the end. Our last dog was inherited and weighed 12 lbs. at her highest, but was a good little girl--she and I met in the utility sink rather than the bath tub. You'll deserve a nice long rest after doing the doggie bath. Hope your day is peaceful! Ann

    Oh, you are so normal. Yes, I had that "bad dream, I'm going to wake up" for quite a while. I did not tell my neighbors, but eventually one was told by Phil, and he told the rest of them. Lets see...I learned to tell people I had a "neurological disease" and found most of them let it go. I make friends with everyone and did tell a few store workers what it was, but the problem with that was, they always wanted to stand and talk...and you know that gets harder as time goes on. I ended up sneaking around hiding from some folks. So, I suggest you don't give them a name for the disease. As long as you can shrug your shoulders and smile and not get caught up it is a lot easier. It's embarrassing to complain, but you see, I was "the comforter"--that was my role. So, with some women friends, I don't ever answer the phone. My voice is nearly always a whisper. I am still smiling... but have had to go to emailing some friends.

    Hi Mary, I read about your "denial". I too have thoughts that maybe it's all some huge mistake and I don't have ALS. I do hope that but am pretty sure they're right. I think that's normal at this point.

    Hi Bhappy! I'm so glad you're already plugged into the ALSA. Thirty nine days of classroom. What do you teach? Are you in the same room throughout the day? I taught years ago, and know how hard it is on legs and back. I waited as long as possible for each aid. The cane, a rollator walker, and then wheelchair. If I were to have to begin again, I'd give in a lot faster. There is some knee damage from (I think) staying on my legs for too long. I hope you have slow progression and will become very much at home here on the forum.

    Yes, I think this is my last year too. I'll be working part time this summer. I just want to see how this is going to go. So, you're a teacher! I always thought being a teacher would be fun. Keep in touch Mary! You're in my thoughts!! ;)
