This is a very stressful time. Do you have folks close by for support? Tell us more about your circumstances and ask any questions you may have. It is hard to think straight when something like this is going on. You can use this forum to help gather your thoughts and prepare for what may be coming.
Hi darmay. Sorry to learn about your DX. I hope this forum proves helpful in these difficult times. There's a lot to learn through the search feature and I've always found that no question is too sensitive. Glad you could join us and keep in touch! Cindy
When I was 1st diagnosed in July 06, I went to church and the sermon was about God's love in your community. Let people know what you are going thru and many people will come to listen and help. Make sure you are seeing an ALS clinic, my family physician and other neurologists did not know what to do with me. When I went to an ALS clinic I finally found people who understood our issues.
Welcome to you, too. Your advice is good - some days easier to follow than others - but definitely a positive approach to the challenge with which we've been confronted. Hope you'll stick around and share your experiences with the rest of us.
