Hey guys. Been having some really bad days. Mums 6 months anniversary two days ago. Cried a lot. Very down in general. Fear is getting the best of me again. Everything slips off my hands, even the nails clips, everything slips, like i cant close fingers, cant hold the keys right. Sometimes fork too, like i cant hold it. My leg has been worse too, always tight. I go to bed and think of the mistakes. Giving mum antidepressants when she wasnt even depressed cause doctors didnt know what she had. The physio therapy. Her broken hand hurting her like hell and i was insisting on her to do it, we didnt know what she had. She was calling me crying. All the memories. Closing my eyes and pushing away the memories. I didnt hug her enough. I miss her. I didnt kiss her enough.

Hey Nina, everyone has bad days. Anniversaries like six months are tough.

You miss your mom, but don't ever think she didn't know how much you loved her.

Don't let your mind shut down your body. You can be of great help to others and that will help you feel better as well.

Default Re: Moving Forward

Nah i feel ok here reading everyones pains, complains. Im scared with the knee pain. Im try to be a bit from fit but im scared. Scared of getting sick. Im also nearly broke. The paper work for my inheritance costed me nearly 1000e and i need to give the irs about 2500 euros. I blame myself for not thinking about myself. I should have kept something for me. But in Greece you pay everything concerning als. Anyway. I had an emg in my leg, one needle as you know but he didnt give an analysis or anything. Just the diagram i posted here. Maybe i should go for a full emg? Feel so done u know. Like everything is going against me.

Default Re: Moving Forward

Nina, I've moved these posts to their own thread so your concerns can be separate from Sue's. It's not a general check-in thread.

I think we covered your own health in other threads, and there is no reason to think you have ALS. So especially since money is tight, I would spend it on the basics and work on what can help you feel better.

I know you want to lose weight, for example. The good news is, walking is free!
