Hey Rina...I live close to you in Woodford Green. Does your aunt go to King George. I go there to see my diagnosing neuro, although I was diagnosed at Spire Roding, privately. Does your auntie see Carla Bone speach and Sheila for massage, I also see Kulvinider Physio and Julie OT. I was diagnosed bulbar in March 08, but had had symptoms for a couple of months. I can no longer go upstairs without my stair lift, and was just given a wheeled walking frame for indoors...my speech is totally gone. Maybe we could get in touch, share some local information and help. I see a wonderful neuro at Barts, soon to be Basildon I hope, at an mnd clinic and am hoping to get on either the lithium trial or my neuros own one, which he is in the process of setting up, dont know what it is for.
