    Hi Laurie,

    I'm fairly new to these boards there seems to be that there are an awful lot of youngsters posting today, is this typical?
    Really enjoy reading your posts,

    Be well and God bless,

    Hi lgelb, I couldn't find a way to message you directly so I apologize for this visitor post. I am not changing my profile status as I registered "for" my husband so the account is both of us so when you see posts, it's most likely him asking or commenting. I am so sorry for your loss. This diagnosis has certainly been a devastating blow to our family. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Several have told me you are the respiratory guru :-) I'm having difficulty adjusting to my bipap. I'm 66 yr old with bulbar onset ALS. My speech began to slur in April 2014. In July 2015 slurring was worse and some swallowing issues - received a PLS diagnosis. In January the diagnosis changed to ALS. The pulmonologist at the ALS clinic encouraged a bipap. My FVC is 72%. (I know that my breathing is compromised but I still walk 1.5 miles on my treadmill every morning w/o stopping in 30 minutes and can walk a flight of stairs w/o stopping) The bipap was delivered three weeks ago. Initially it was so drying I could only stand it for 10 min - throat would be raw. The pulmonologist ordered a humidifier - delivered a week ago. It makes the process more bearable but I can only last about 30 minutes at a time. I've noticed if I use it close to bedtime, I have more coughing after I get horizontal. Any suggestions? Thanks

    I have not posted on the site in some time, but am now looking for some specific advice about my PALS' respiratory decline and whether we need to tweak bipap settings. I cannot figure out how to send you a private message, and so am trying to reach you this way (visitor message). Please let me know how best to contact you. I'll do my best to describe our predicament and my questions. Thank you.
