    ALS? 18 year old

    ALS? 18 year old

    Thank you so much for your response and I know your right I should have never even started my own internet diagnosing, it was just hard for me to hold back my worry and curiosity and the internet seemed like an outlet to find out what is wrong. Turns out it makes it worse just as you said...
