Hi. My name is Dave. I have ALS. Was diagnosed in Feb 2018 although I felt I knew what it was long before that and didn't want to join the group till I was sure. I have read many blogs and am amazed at the support and love and positive attitudes. I have struggled mentally with this for 6 months. Am 61 but feel emotionally as if I was 5. I'm from Nebraska and recently had to quit farming cause of my weakness. Still can walk slowly. Fatigue is overwhelming. Makes it harder to handle when I been very healthy my whole life as I've heard happens alot with people with ALS. I am here because I need support and am willing to support and share all i know.

Thank you. Dave

Hi Dave,

I highly recommend you join the forum. These blogs don't get the same kind of traffic and replies as the ALS forums and I encourage you to join the community there. If you look at the top of your page, you will see "Forums"- if you select it will take you to a larger community of support.
