Just read your post and I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Life serves up some cruel ones sometimes. What is great to read about is your fantastic attitude. Clearly things will be different for you from now on but with your mindset I am sure the future is bright. Keep being fantastic!!

Without a doubt this forum was better because of you.

I've always believed that happiness in life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

Keep it up.

I am new here, but this is awful news. Best of luck to you fighting such a terrible disease.

We have a friend that has been fighting it for 15 years now, so I know how tough can be at times.

great blog, great perspective. I wish the best for you and your family!

interesting read from the tree hugging Albertan. LOL

when we saw our son lose speech because of traditional medication prescribed and administered in a hospital we started down the "alternative" medicine route - read it, or don't, but thought it might be of some use.

God bless you.

I read this a while ago and it rang so true in my head . Maybe it will help you
Do not go gentle into that good night
Old age should burn and rage at the close of the day
Rage , rage against the dying of the light
Though wise men at their end know dark is right
Because their words had forked no lightning
They do not go gentle into that good night

Prostar, your approach and love for life will serve you well in the battle with ALS, and may be your most important advantage over it, including western and alternative medicine.

FWIW, a friend was diagnosed with ALS over 10 years ago, and is still a living miracle in defying a disease that has much shorter mortality. This guy is quick to smile, laugh, and enjoy all that life brings. As a single example of his persona, after being diagnosed, he met and married his second wife. Between them it is the Brady Bunch with 5 kids. Without doubt, his mentality has overcome this disease already.

Best wishes to you, your family, and your friends. As you noted, you have many more here on TT pulling for you.

Hasta luego.
