I have been reading around your posts for a while now. I have found so much valuable information here and great support among the members. Tonight I showed these forums to my brother (he is my P). Just hoping he finds some value here too.

Thanks. I know I haven't said much, but I do listen. It seems sometimes there are so many questions I just don't know where to start, but slowly I am finding them with answers attached-imagine that. My history is this: my younger brother is my person. He is 52, single, lives alone, and is fiercely independent. He was diagnosed w PLS in June 2011. I live 27 miles away and shop pick up laundry drive him to appointments make calls for him and search for anything else I can do. What I try to do is sometimes way to much and at the same time never enough... Am sure that is a pretty common feeling.

Welcome, I joined in March, but just starting reading and posting this week. It took me so long because I was in denial concerning needing support from others that knew what I was going through. I tried a local support group, but didnt' get what I needed. I must say in this short time, I feel supported and feel that everyone cares about each other. I know you will feel the same, and hopefully your brother will to. This is a place you can get help from others and feel comfortable expressing your feelings.
