Ok. well my stepdad has ALS. He has been a close fmaily friend for years and about 4 years ago he moved in and then last spring he was diagnosed with ALS. Him and my mother were engaged at the time and they were hesitant to get married...But my mom loves him very much and they had tgheir wedding in september 2005. Im only 16 and im so scared. i dont live there and i dont see him often enough ..But i ccant go back because of my mom and problems with her. I hate that this wont go away and im so scared of evrything...I saw a tv preveiw for ER this week concerning ALS and started crying uncontrably while friends wwere over. Im so scared. i dont know what to do or say.
