- Loved one DX
Hi, My mom at the age of 55 was just told 5 months ago that she has ALS. It is moving very rapid. She went from a drop foot at christmas to not being able to walk to not being able to use her right arm and now this week I was told that she had to go see a lung spec. and he has put her on a machine that she has to use at night to regulate the co2 in her body. And he wants to see her in a month. To top everything off I am an only child. And my mom has been single since I was 6. And boy is she hard core at sometimes. I am very close with her and I try to be very positive. But sometimes this is so hard. It is all left up to me. And she will not I mean not come and live with me. I have two small girls and a business to run. How can I keep myself okay.
