    First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them. Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous. (Winston Churchill loved them). 1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it. 2. The last thing...

    Time to Vent

    Well it's time to vent again. It seems like there is some appointment of some kind every day. Thank God that I only work occasionally. I don't know how you people with FT jobs do it all. My PALS keeps FB messaging me for this and that. I can barely take a shower or eat some days. Then I have my...

    Our Terrible Story

    My wife has Bulbar ALS, diagnosed since Oct. 2016. Some background prior to her diagnosis is necessary to get context: My wife, myself, and our now 19 yo daughter moved from RI to FL to care for my 91 year old Dad in July 2013. We moved in with him. He was very demanding and...

    Prayers for PALS

    Now that I'm stuck at home, some Christian brothers and sisters are coming here on Mondays for Bible study. If you would like to be added to our prayer list, please post. PALS and CALS are all welcome. Everyone is welcome. We serve a big God and there is room in His house of prayer for ALL!

    PALS without CALS

    Good morning everyone, I had to cancel my trip up North because I decided to try the lunasin protocol and just got overwhelmed with all that I'm trying to do. I'm worn out to the point that I just don't know where to place my energy and priorities. I'm at a point where I don't know where...

    Judith Is Home

    I learned from her husband Steve that Judy Thurstan died Sunday, May 1. Judy joined this forum over 9 years ago, and most of her ALS contemporaries have long since departed so I think there are few left here that knew her. She and Annie became the closest of friends through this forum and...

    I have done a bit of searching, as I was missing Charlene no end. From what I have found via Facebook, our dear Charlene has gone. Neither Charlene or Peter had responded to emails, which prompted me to find our dear friend. My gosh already I can't remember the exact date, beginning of April...

    Thankful for advance directive

    [I'm posting this again without my original closing sentence that someone thought was religious. I'm not religious, and nothing religious was expressed in my post or in any replies before the post was removed. But I guess there's no use quibbling with a censorious site moderator who thinks I...

    Losing Faith

    Has anyone lost their fate in god (or the god of your religion) after the diagnosis? I grew up in a Christian house and always believed but since I became ill and all my prays are like doing nothing I am beginning to lose my faith. I know it was not him who put this diseases in our bodies but it...
