Hello everyone,

I've been lurking on the forum for a few months now as I've strongly suspected my partner has MND and now it's unfortunately been confirmed.

I find it really comforting to know we're not the only ones going through this- the forum really is invaluable in such an isolating predicament. Thanks to everyone who posts on here regularly- it has helped me to get a bit of perspective on what it's really like to live with MND or to be an MND carer and to realise it isn't quite as terrifying as it might seem at first.
As we've been pretty sure it was MND since about May, we've already gone through the period of extreme shock and the diagnosis itself wasn't too bad and am actually feeling slightly more positive now we know some help is at hand.

Hopefully I'll talk to you all more in the future,

Tess
