After a very rough and painful year I thought that life would start to get a little better. Just when I thought I was doing a little better I am now devastated. My husband who is my best friend and someone I love so dearly has been diaganosed with ALS. I could not believe the words of the doctor. I am still shocked, we are trying to come to grips with this. I have not been here for a bit due to having this very painful time. I do miss everyone, I hope everyone is doing okay.

I don't know what to say other than keep your head up. Don't give up hope.

You and your husband will be in my prayers tonight, gem.

I would like to thank all of you for your kind words, they meant alot to me. You are all very kind. I hope it was okay to express my sadness. I know we all have enough to deal with without listening to more sadness. My heart was literally breaking and I could not help myself but to reach out. Thank you again for being there.

At a time such as this, your husband is especially fortunate to have someone who loves and cares about him as deeply as you do.

My thoughts are with both of you.

Soulbrotha, ALS is a horrible illness. It is like being a prisoner in your own body. It is a neromuscular disease. It weakens the muscles throughout the body. The nerves die and eventually it paralizes. It strikes without warning. My husband had a little twitch in his arm and that is how it started. The twitching spread and is now in both arms. His arms are now weak. His fingers on one hand struggle to pick up things. It is called Lou Gehriegs disease. It is a very painful illness. I still cannot believe that we have been told this. I will love him, I told him when your arms no longer work properly I will be your arms, when your legs do not work properly I will be your legs. I will take good care of him because the day we married the minister said through sickness and in health.

I am so very sorry :(, but you will get through this together. Sounds like you have a very solid and loving marriage, he is lucky to have someone that will stand by him through this. I wish I knew what to say, but more than that, I just wish you didnt have to go through this at all.

DP/DR is bad enough. Now this. Really sorry to hear. It shows that we never know whats around the corner. We must always cherish ever moment with our loved ones. It's nice to see that you two have such a strong relationship. Take care.

I thank each and everyone of you for your kind words and support. Life is truly very tough right now. I seem to be crying all the time. My husband and I are trying to cope with all of this and my dp. The dp is really bad right now. It means so much to me the support and kindness shown. You are all wonderful and caring people who I respect very much.
