I was recently diagnosed with ALS last month on July 10, 2006 with hand and arm onset. I would like some thoughts and opinions about how long I should continue to work full time before applying for social security disability. I work in a public health dept as a program manager for HIV AIDS. Writing and typing have become increasingly more difficult. Some problems with slowed speech, would also like some ideas about what people do to supplement finances during the 5month waiting period. Any ideas would be appreciated.
