    Signing Off

    Hey Jamie, This forum and especially this section of the forum, will not be the same without you. I also started lurking on the forum about the same time you joined, though I didn't actually join until a couple months later. I am so very thrilled that you don't have an ALS diagnosed, but like...

    Hi Annmarie, Happy belated birthday! I read your post on another thread that you are having a tough time. I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and you remain in my prayers. Undoubtedly, you are under a lot of stress which might be contributing to worsening of symptoms, my point...

    Benefit for Jack on Saturday July 7, 2007

    I'll be praying for Stephanie, she has quite the battle on her hands. But she has a lot of ammunition, between her caring and wonderful doctors, and her positive attitude (that will carry her a long way!), and the love of a close family. Of course you'll stay strong because you ARE strong, but...

    Good News

    WOOOO HOOOO! Congratulations, Jamie! Never thought I'd be congratulating someone for having lyme disease...but it's just like congratulating Leslie for her diagnosed -- ANYTHING is better than ALS. After being so sure you had ALS, it must feel a bit disorienting to have your life given...

    curious about what to expect in the future

    Oh Jackie...I am so very sorry you were treated in such a way. No, you have not lost your faith. Your faith is being tried in a manner that very few people have known. Quit crying and quit worrying? You are right -- people who say things like that have no idea what they are talking about...

    random act of kindness

    Wow, Cindy...that story brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for posting it. OK, here are two RAKs, one in which I was the recipient, and one in which I was the giver (see what goes around does come around, but of course that's not why we do RAKs :)). Many years ago, my brother and I went on a...

    I need your opinion

    Well, Jamie, you have to tell them what's in your heart. Whenever I tell myself that, I write down what I'll want to say, then sputter through it when the time comes. But, I would definitely let the doctors know the affects their cavalier attitudes have had on you and yours, not only for...

    We need to band tighter together!

    Jeffrey, eHope sounds like a wonderful endeavor! Donna, I think your idea is a great one. I've edited my profile to include the city in Colorado in which I live (Lakewood, in the Denver area). And while I was at it, I added a profile picture of Saska, my forever angel :). Beebe, I wish I...

    Benefit for Jack on Saturday July 7, 2007

    Hi Beebe, I hope you have someone focusing on you...that you have a lot of local support to help with the enormous load you are carrying. I know it is a labor of immense love, but it is labor nonetheless. Take very good care of yourself. I pray Steph does not have too tough of a time with...

    Fasciculations and the Holistic doctor answers

    Massage can be an effective treatment for reducing fasciculations, and stretching is as well. Massage is also often covered by insurance. Sharon
