    I was searching through the forum to find someone similar to me. I am 27 and have been the primary care giver to my mother in law who has ALS.

    I've read your posts and questions- Just wanted to tell you that the best thing my family and I ever did after my own diagnoses was to watch a video on youtube. It's called "ABC's of ALS"- 3 part series. It is so helpful and explains everything. While the camera angles are not the best- the crucial information is well presented by the Director at Forbes Norris ALS Research & Treatment Center.

    In answer to your query today- that's where I learned some ALS patients pass away without having loss the ability to walk.
