    Nice of you to think of me! It has been awhile since I have been on. Things have not been so good since Easter. My husband has had numerous bouts of pain. They think a combination of shingles and gout. It has been a long month and at this point not a lot of relief. With not a lot of activity he...

    Nice of you to think of me! Things have not been so good since Easter. My husband has had numerous bouts of pain. They think a combination of shingles and gout. It has been a long month and at this point not a lot of relief. I always think about getting on the forum but there are not enough...

    Bathroom remodel

    Wow! What beautiful bathroom remodels. The conversation here is kind of what I have already heard. Some say go for it and some say not worth it. That crystal ball would really come in handy on situations like this but I am not sure I want to know it all. We have received our first estimate...

    Bathroom remodel

    I was hoping for your thoughts on remodeling a bathroom. I have had nursing friends say get a roll in shower, make the bathroom so it is easy on you and gives him independence in the bathroom. Others have said, don't waste the money, a time will come that most of that will be done in others...

    Pity Party coming on!

    I second the group hug! Feeling exhausted over trying to decide if Medicare is primary or if his former employers insurance is and am getting the complete run around. I cannot understand usually no one wants to pay and now they both want to be first! Why must there be an issue everyday? You...

    Linda, what a wonderful son you must have! I can only hope that our three children can be that kind as they get older.

    Caregivers with Young Kids

    How old are your children. Our children are 14, 11 & 9. Each handle things so differently it is sometimes hard to know which one to help first and whether it is affecting them like it may be affecting another. One gets angry, one cries and the other hibernates. I think honestly is the best...

    Introduction

    Emails are a good way to put your true feelings in print but you don't have to face that person. You can be crying and writing at the same time. Sometimes I write or type away and then erase everything I wrote and just simply say Thanks for thinking of us and please pray for time. I probably...

    Introduction

    Welcome! I to am a lurker. I want to know and then I don't! But most of all I need a friend that understands so I hope that I can be that for you at one time or another! My husband was diagnosed almost a year ago and I still cry, almost daily! I was told it is okay, that it doesn't mean you...

    Just getting started as a CALS

    Thank you for all your posts. I feels good that people care enough to respond. We have been connected with MDA and an ALS Clinic and they have been very helpful! After a couple crazy days with some big falls we have let the idea of the stair lift go and are moving downstairs. How long did...

    Thank you for reaching out to me! I look forward to meeting new friends here that can help get me through it. Maybe I can help them too! I am like you I want to know what is next so that I can be prepared. We are almost approaching a year and have done so well until the last few weeks but I...

    First time talking to others

    Oh SMP51, a life without my husband and friend is the hardest part. Every time I let that thought come into my mind, I just cry! I understand your pain!

    Just getting started as a CALS

    Moving is not an option at this time. It is not something I think about but in our rural area there are not a lot of homes for sale. I keep my eyes open but I have not found a home that fits our needs. I have a husband that collects cars and our current home has a large garage. Even though...

    We live in an rural area and are about 2 hours away from a support group. My counselor suggested I find an online group to find people who are going through the same things. In the last 10 months I have visited this site but never registered. The last few weeks have been tough and I decided...
