    Respiratory Failure 101

    I don't mean to be morose, but this is something I know only bits and pieces about. Not to offend anyone, but my greatest fear is losing control of my extremities and not being able to move. I want to die of respiratory failure long before that time comes. My respiration three weeks ago was...

    Don't mean to hijack...

    Hi wonderful CALS. I know I don't belong here as a PALS but I just have to get your opinions as they are the only ones that count on this subject. My wife and I have been married 31 years. We had a rough patch for a couple of years around our 15th anniversary but it was all worked out. No...

I could tell something was bothering him tonight so I asked him about it. He actually told me that he was really stressed out over his breathing and felt...

    I have read the stickies

    Hello all, I have read both the stickies and they were immensely supportive. My symptoms match those which both stickies suggest are not indicative of ALS. I would say what first brought me to ALS fear was a twitch in my shoulder just over a year a go now. I entered the dreaded Dr Google and...

    An apology and grateful message

    Hello, First of all I do not belong here. I registered purely to say thank you for this site and say how disgusted I feel with myself for feeling the way I do. I have health anxiety following a less than perfect upbringing in which my mother was a alcoholic and my father constantly ill with...
