Yes, mamma! It could be shouted from the rooftops, everyone doesn't died between the prognostic time. I've got the disease, 34 years. Diagnosed in 1978. Told three times by three different neurologists – prognosis two to five years. Arms and hands completely useless! I write with voice recognition software. I am a happy person and delighted that those specialists were wrong! Thank God. I know of two other people here in Ireland. One 22 years diagnosed and the other 29 years. Never throw in the towel!
