My stepson, Shawn, is a Physical Therapist with an incredible talent. He agrees with Tammy and suggested what all the others did not, that an excersise regime could, quite possibly, help and certainly wouldn't hurt. He has been working with me and I now have a series of excersises, fit to my abilities, that I can do alone and with my husband.
It's tiring, but that's the nature of ALS, and the end result is that I feel a little stronger,the circulation in my legs is improving and I feel more in control of my life.
You only loose when you refuse to fight!
