I remember that feeling - it was awful. You made a very good move by posting here. You'll get lots of support and information if you stick around. It really helps you to get a grip on your situation. I found when I first "arrived" that browsing through old posts was very helpful. Half your questions have probably already been answered here but don't be afraid to ask anyway. Someone's always got a new perspective. When you're ready tell us a little more about yourself.
Welcome Marvin. Sorry for the reason you are here but glad you found us. I htink you will find there is no subject that is "taboo" on this site and everyone is kind and respectful to one another. Hve you had a visit with an ALS clinic yet?
