I tried my best not to post here, telling myself I am silly for thinking and regret the day I thought it would be a neat idea to Google my symptoms (this should be...
So, here I am exactly one week out from my husband's death. It was really only after he actually passed that I have started to realize the absolute hellfire we went through together.

Hi, My father in law Age -73 years diagnosed with Bulbar symptoms in March 2018. He was feeling slight dragging of foot and speech issue for more than a year, but after several doctors visits he was adviced for some voice exercises with reason of 'sound box issue due to age' but after more...
I am in need of honest opinions-and maybe a little tough love.
First: I have so much respect for the folks battling this disease while also being willing to support and advise others. My gratitude goes out to you.
