Hello, haven't posted for quite some time. Was diagnosed with slow progressing ALS 2 1/2 years ago, been symptomatic going on 6. Had to quit working in March. Depression destroyed my marriage so now I'm without my best friend, partner and kids. Really just now starting to struggle with the basics, getting dressed, using utensils, etc...but I still manage. I'm an emotional train wreck, I see my kids and when they leave it's the worst pain imaginable. I'm tired of crying myself to sleep every night. I've been trying to find a sense of direction the last 6 months but cant find anything to fill the void I have created by losing my family. I cant afford housing until my disability kicks in October and by then I dont know if its wise to try and go at it alone. I'm not sure what to do now, I'm heartbroken, physically and mentally exhausted but still trying to get on a better path to give me some peace, just can't seem to find it.
