    is anyone else impressed by...

    A funny spin on perceiving my disease-- Is anyone else impressed by how much they still *can* do when you look at your muscle atrophy? I look at my hands and they look so shocking to me from atrophy, as if they belong on someone whose been living in a concentration camp. Yet here is am...

    Weight Question

    I researched other entries re: weight but guess not finding what I am wondering about. My husband is in his 3 1/2 year plus, and now is basically a concentration camp looking individual.

    Muscle Fatigue, Twitching and Cramping Following Stomach Illness

    A bit of background as you’ll probably wonder why I’m posting in an ALS forum: 31 year old male. Prior to all this I was an extremely fit, high-level competitive cyclist with few health concerns. At the end of Nov. 2015 I began to have severe gastrointestinal issue (severe cramping, LOUD...

    Trip Report: Yellowstone, Fall 2015

    It has taken a very long time to get through the pictures we took during our September trip to Yellowstone. I have finally done so and am now ready to write a bit of a trip report.

    We are home from some pretty crazy adventures

    I have not posted very much for the last few weeks. Here is why. At the beginning of the summer, we planned two fall trips. The first was 2 weeks in Yellowstone and the second was for a week at the Grand Canyon. We were planning to stay in a hotel at Yellowstone and tent camp at the Grand...
