    Importance of reading to your children

    The Million Word Gap Parents who take time to read aloud to their children are doing them a huge favor. Not only is it a memorable bonding activity, but it's also a way to jump-start a child's education and put them on the fast track to literacy. Many parents and caretakers know this...

    Muscle fatigue/weakness, fasciculations

    I want to share my story. I have seen many doctors in many specialties (including many neurologists), and nobody can help me. I'd like to ask (1) if this sounds like ALS, (2) if this sounds like another motor neuron disease of any kind, or (3) what else it could be and where else I might look...

    Adventures in van parking, part 2

    Perhaps this is a tale of poetic justice. You can decide. So as a followup to a previous thread .... https://www.alsforums.com/forum/rants-raves/43805-handicapped-parking-spots-new-post.html Today I’m out for a haircut, still able to drive the van myself and transfer into the pwc, enjoying...

    update on me

    Hi everyone, I haven't posted in a while and thought I would come on and give you a life update. Things had been going really well for me and my family. I went back to school for my Masters in Education and in general starting taking care of myself. Well long story short, I went in for my...

    The beach bar...

    Just something to read… in the “After 5 Forum Pub”. It took me a few days to put this together. My writing skills aren’t what they used to be. After Spring Break and for the rest of the year our beach bar often reminded me of a Chameleon. It was a side gig I got involved with. From opening...

    No diagnosis but something is off

    Dear all, thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I wish all of you the very best. I have read the stickies and I know that a lot points away from ALS, however my neurologist cannot really tell me what is going on so I thought I'd ask. I don't know if it is related but in...

    How are you?

    How I hate that question now. It's become almost a default greeting. I know most people are trying to be kind by asking, but I honestly don't know how to answer anymore. I usually just say "We're OK" or "We're hanging in there". But honestly, we're not OK. And I'm sometimes just hanging...

    Concerned after initial neuro exam

    Hello, everyone. I was just wondering if I would be able to get some feedback and opinions from the wonderful people on this forum. I realize you guys get a lot of questions regarding things don't seem to be related to ALS, so I apologize in advance if I go down the same path. First of all, I...

    Waiting on Neuro, scared.

    Hi, Thank you in advance for your time. I've read many of the posts here and I am in a similar situation. My grandmother died at age 76 from ALS, and it has given me a lot of anxiety over the past 10 years related to it. I also had a more distant relative (a cousin of my father) who I believe...
