I was just diagnosed with fALS on Monday. I live alone and none of my family lives in the same state. I am worried about my future and how long I will be able to live independently. While I think friends are trying to be supportive sometimes I feel like they don’t acknowledge the reality of this situation. I was on spring break when I learned my diagnosis. I am supposed to return to teaching on Monday. I just don’t have the energy I need right now. I am still digesting the news. Any ideas on how to manage being newly diagnosed would be great. Thank you.
