Suzy,
I surely can relate with feeling depressed. I was diagnosed June of 2014. At first my legs were a little weaker, one hand (left) definitely weaker. Now my breathing is getting more difficult. I started using a bi-pap machine for breathing about 2 weeks ago. My pulmonary doctor said my breathing was down to 50% I find it doesn't take much for me to get out of breath. I still walk or you might say shuffle. I can only stand for a short time so a wheelchair will be coming soon.

I think my progression is fast. From June to now - about 6 or 7 months and my breathing has gotten bad and walking has deteriorated. It feels like fast progression. I've heard others in the forum mention that you just get used to one problem and another comes right along. I feel that way.

Welcome to the forum. You will find good folks here.
