Hi Amanda, just read your post. Your mom is so lucky to have a wonderful, caring daughter like you. I have to agree with you, Als does bring the families closer. May God bless you and your mom, and I will be looking forward to your posts! Welcome!

Hi Amanda,

Im new to this site too....my mom also has ALS. She was diagnosed 3 years ago, and hasnt walked in two years. I cant really "care" for her. I used to bath her etc, but now she needs more than I can give. I have 3 kids and work full time, so......I cant do alot for her personal care, but I have taken over in every other part of her life, house, bills, decisions etc. Just wanted to say hello....Ive never talked to others in this situation in the whole 3 years, and Im finding it helpful just reading about others.

Shel
