- Loved one DX
My mother has recently been diagnosed with ALS. She is still in the process of getting the final confirmation and has yet to get a second opinion, but she has many of the symptoms of ALS. It has been a rather emotional rollercoaster and not knowing has been hard. I am currently in the Air Force and as such far away from home, this makes it even harder for me. Luckily I only have one year left before I retire but that one year seems like it is a lifetime considering how quickly this disease progresses and the short life span of many of those diagnosed. I just wanted to find some place I could talk out my feelings since I can't be there for my mom at this emotional time.
