Diagnosis is without a doubt the toughest part of ALS and the most traumatic.  I did have a very kind person to give me the verdict and that was Dr. Strong at the ALS Clinic in London.  I have, however, heard of more than a few who have had experiences that are, to say the least, shocking.  I am not sure why this happens but as stated above, I have a theory but whether it is true or not, well, your guess is as good as mine.








 Well now that I have ripped up the medical community, what can you do to help yourself?








I hope that this has helped some of you through the difficult process of being diagnosed and trying to sort out just what you have to do.  If I left anything out, which I probably did, please do not hesitate to drop me an e-mail.  The mailbox on the front page is there for that specific reason.  The only question that I hope you won’t ask is “how come I am still around ?”.  Just to put that to rest… I have no idea.  I do not take any medications other than vitamin pills and do not have a secret cure.

Take it from me; if I did I would not be spending all these hours on the computer trying to raise awareness!
