Facing Who I Am

I’m finally writing a post. It’s not one I’m looking forward to. I’m facing who I am and putting it out there. Sure, I can nice it up a bit, but I said I was going to be honest about myself from the beginning and I see no point in putting a fake persona of…

My Feelings

I need to let out some feelings I’ve been dealing with. I’m just going to let loose. Any writing order out the window. I’m writing my feelings, my thoughts as they come to me right now. Just go with me, please. I was very lucky to have my neurologist offer me the opportunity to participate…

Excitement and Disappointment

I’ve had lots of alternating excitement and disappointment lately. I guess for the most part that’s called life. It just seems magnified when ALS is always with you.
