    My mother's mental state... she is so cruel.

    My mother was diagnosed last year. The majority of her body has succumbed to ALS. She can still speak, move her left arm, and her neck. Over the past few weeks, her mental state has changed. She has always been someone who speaks her mind, and in some cases - should not - but rarely to...

    Random Thoughts About Anything

    Sometimes I feel in a rush to get things done while I can still do them. It's almost like I have two personalities. One just wants to sit around, eat, surf the Internet, and watch TV. The other one wants to publish again, go on a weekend retreat, and buy that ticket to visit cousins up North...

    Advice Needed - Catheters

    Hi All, As most of you know we have been at this for a very long time. You may have been told that ALS will not affect your bladder/bowels. That may be the case if your PALS goes quickly, but if you choose to vent and they stick around longer than the suggested time frame, you may end up...

    Sleepwalking Cals? Bad....

    OMG. Matt said he asked me to put his mask on him about 1:30 this morning and that I got out of bed, walked into the bathroom, then went back to bed. He told me no, sweetie, I need the mask, so I threw it at him and said "here it is." He is smiling as he tells the story, but he is apparently...
