    please help me come over my anxiety

    Take is from someone who suffers from anxiety, you are having anxiety related health issues. If I read about anxiety symptoms I start to have them. Anxiety will wreck you if you don't take control of it. My dad lost his life to ALS, that's a disease with no cure, anxiety is treatable. Take...

    My Dad's Passing

    Post made me cry for you all.

    Haven't been on here lately, so sad to see how many PALS have pasted away. Sad to hear some PALS are getting worse. I would sometimes get a little envious reading that you still had your PALS alive. But when I read your stories, it breaks my heart all over again. I am so sorry you all have to...

    Liz, You taught people the best lesson you could have ever taught, a life lesson. People came together to help because of you. You opened the eyes of people to understand a disease that baffles the medical community.

    Hi, I'm new

    Kris, you might want to consider using pictures. I have a son who was speech delayed. You might be able to get a therapist who can make up the cards w/ common words that you would use. Eat, bathroom, t.v., etc. He can point to them. Lack of communication is hard for the PALS & CALS...
