i saw this in todays newspaper,about a women with als for 13yrs and is still going strong.
though she has slow progression and was diagnosed,ed at 28yrs of age,she and her doctors put it down to posative thinking.
it reminded of me as i got ill at 31yrs and have had mnd 9yrs now,my son has kept me going like her children did.
the mind is very powerfull,though i know it can not bring about miracles but posative thinking can help.
the article is the second one down "its been hell-but its made me a much better mother".
take good care.
