Thank you very much Ann. I did visit his website last night. Very much helpful website talking all the things that people may have with the ALS. You know you guys here are unbelievable people for me. Thanks again for your reply.
I am simply a slow progressor and have no special hints or secrets about how that happens. It's my understanding that it can speed up or slow down at any time. I'm very sorry about your mother and her trouble communicating. JoelC is the person who has tried and found many ways to deal with the limitations with the disease. If you see his name in blue, click on it, and there will be a "homepage" option to click on in order to see his good website and hints for living. All the best to you, Ann
