I'm twixt and tween on tough love. I have to good vibes from some of these folks but skipper66 makes a valid point...a lot - well some - on the forums rule everyone out and I think that is wrong as some of the symptoms require some evaluation. Others desire a knock up side the head. Each extreme can be handled a bit more compassionately perhaps .... I think most are sicker than I am and don't even have ALS.
