    PALS ROLL CALL NEW THREAD (PALS ONLY) Wednesday if possible or whenever

    Thanks Karen, I initially tried Zoloft but had unpleasant side effects. I’ll talk with my PCP about alternatives to Trazadone ( although I really value its ability to give me a peaceful 8 hours). I’ve scheduled a consult with a local counselor that another ALS patient sees, so I’ll report back...

    PALS ROLL CALL NEW THREAD (PALS ONLY) Wednesday if possible or whenever

    I wish we were closer, too, Kim. I’d like that. I’ll send a private message with my phone number if I can figure out how to do it! I’m still a long ways from acceptance, and caught in the doo-loop of fear and anticipation. Just started with medical MJ, so we will see if that helps calm me beyond...

    PALS ROLL CALL NEW THREAD (PALS ONLY) Wednesday if possible or whenever

    I’m looking forward to some rain here in Tally, Kim. It’s been brutally hot with not a lick of rain for a while. Afternoon rains soothe me, and my afternoons are the toughest. My wife is back teaching special needs kids, and I’m here with the pets and my dark thoughts. I can stay distracted...

    The story game

    Before Robbie could yell for his sister, the bedroom door opened and Robbie saw that both Mildred and Rose, hugging each other, were safe for the moment. The huge oak tree outside the bedroom window took a direct lightning strike, had caught fire, and a large limb had crashed through the window...

    PALS ROLL CALL NEW THREAD (PALS ONLY) Wednesday if possible or whenever

    Hi everyone. Checking in on this Wednesday the 4th of September. Still able to do everything, but stopped Riluzole this week because of fatigue. I’m feeling a bit better now that it’s out of my system. I have been attached at the hip to this amazing forum since March, three months prior to my...

    I’d Like My Husband to Know...

    You are such a beautiful soul, Lenore. I’m in tears as I write this, because I know and trust that my wife Nori will follow your path one day. Kevin

    The story game

    Robbie knew he had to do something. It only took a moment for him to realize that the thick liquid dripping through the floorboard was blood, and he feared the worst for his father. Making his way slowly up the stairs, he caught a whiff of smoke, and the sound of at least two sets of footsteps...

    The story game

    From his hiding place in the basement, Robbie tried to process the sounds above...the heavy think of someone hitting the floor (he guessed it was his father since he thought he heard his voice, then nothing); the raw, primal scream of his sister; and the sound of a very distant police siren. How...

    The story game

    Roger found a back window open, and Rose is the mystery. How long has she been there...and why?

    The story game

    “Mildred, are you okay?” Roger hissed through clenched teeth as he slowly climbed the stairs. Nearing the top, he shone the light down the long, wood paneled hallway and was shocked to see Rose, standing at the far end, a finger to her pursed lips signaling for her father to keep quiet.

    The story game

    A quarter mile away lived Mildred’s nearest neighbors, the four R’s as she called them (Roger, Ruth, and the two teenagers, Robbie and Rose). Roger noticed that Mildred’s house had lost power, but as he was about to hop in his truck to go check on her, he realized the two teens were not in the...

    The story game

    She was not a naturally brave soul, but with her partner away for the past six days and now alone, she instinctively rushed to the door and slammed the two dead bolt locks in place before whoever—or whatever— could creak it open.

    The story game

    Immediately, Mildred sensed that Scruffs had been spooked by something outside. Peering through the blinds, Mildred saw...or thought she saw...a shadowy, tall figure standing eerily still in her front yard, his (or her?) silhouette clearly outlined with each bright bolt of lightening.

    Hurricane Thread

    So, here we go again. After a lifetime living in Florida, these last few years have been brutal. Right now, Tallahassee looks to be in for maybe a day of tropical storm stuff, but you just never know. You and Kim please take very precaution and hope for a sharp right turn. Kevin
