    James's Intro

    Hello - I'm James

    After diagnosis I've been kind of stalking the forum for a while. Seems to be a really nice crowd on here so I took the plunge and made an account.

    It'll be nice to talk on here as i find it difficult to talk to my partner and daughter about how i feel sometimes - foolish pride i know

    Other than myself I haven't had much experience with MNDA /ALS but i did have a school friend pass 15 years or so ago. When i remember him he was such a gifted footballer too which makes the memory sad.

    Anyway I'm looking forward to integrating myself into this community and learning as well as sharing experiences with you all

    peace x

    Hi James
    A warm welcome to the forum . You can feel free to say and ask what you want on here ,whether it is a personal subject someone will have been through it .

    It is always difficult speaking to those close to you , because you want to stay strong and positive , and you don't want to worry them unnecessarily . I will look forward to your posts

    Best wishes
    Love Chris

Laugh and splutter at some things, Cry out of the blue on a few occasions usually when with a loved one or someone who cares. Take care.. TIANDB

    Hello James and Welcome !

    I think everyone does a little " stalking " before they post but you are right that this is a lovely group of people , who are always on hand to listen or give practical or emotional support.

    Sometimes it is hard to talk to people close to us and it must be tough for you if you had a friend with MND. Everyone's journey and progression is different, however.

    Best Wishes
    Love Debbie
