- Lost a loved one
I'm new to the forum. I am 47 with a 23 and a 25 year old. My mom passed away from ALS in 2003 at the age of 55. I don't know how long she knew though. She only lived a couple months once we found out. At that time the told us it was not hereditary. Lately I have found out otherwise. Up until I read the article after joining the group about why am I here I was in panic. I have been having the muscle twitching, some speech slurring, and extra silava. Just praying its al psychological. The intro has given me hope. Although I am terrified.
