As most of you know, I am a west coast journalist with ALS documenting my odyssey with this disease. I am working on a column about intervention, i.e., feeding tubes, respirators, etc. There are those willing to get plugged in and others who are not comfortable with the idea. I would like to talk with people on line who have drawn the line with feeding tubes and/or respirators to get their views. I am not making judgments in any way and in fact support fellow PALS no matter what decision they make. I am merely illustrating the varieties of thinking. Perhaps what you say might make someone who has made a similar choice not feel alone.
