    Hi Billy and welcome to the forum;

    Sorry to hear about your diagnoses and the loss of your wife to MS. It is a lot for your daughter to take.

    Please feel free to ask any questions or share things with us.

    Best wishes, Terry

    Hello Billy..I'd like to welcome you to the forum too. I'm sorry to hear of your diagnosis, your wife's MS and particularly feel for your daughter. My husband has ALS/bulbar issues and we have 4 daughters..youngest was 6 when he was diagnosed in 2008. This forum is a lifeline for me..I've learnt so much about how to help my husband (and of course to offload when it all gets too much) and I hope it helps you and your daughter too. Everyone of course has their own experience but it's good to share information and advice. I have had great support already and only joined this year.
    Best wishes,
    Boiler

    Hi Billy,

    Welcome to the forum although I am obviously sorry you need to be here. I am also sorry about your wife and this must be very hard on your daughter : it does sound like you are a strong person.

    There is always a wealth of emotional and practical advice on here. It's a good place to find a sympathetic ear when we have the inevitable bad day.

    Take Care and Best Wishes.
    Debbie
