After being told about 10 months ago that I had had a small strolke and sharing that info with family and some friends, I have now seen 2 other neurologists, including 1 at an ALS center, and been told it wasn't a stroke and have a diagnosis of probable ALS. Only my husband knows that thus far. I don't know what to tell daughters, parents, other family, friends, and co-workers. Probable--I feel like the girl who cried wolf. So should I just keep quiet until I see the MD again in 3 months and he see how things have progressed? Even though my speech is becoming harder to understand and my arm and hand are getting weaker. And I don't know what to do about trying to sell our 2-story house and moving to something smaller and on one level or making any other plans. "Probable" is harder for me than definite.
