My husband was given the diagnosis almost 3 weeks ago. It came as a complete shock as the most likely cause of his slurred speech was myasthenia gravis. His way of dealing with it at the moment is by not talking or thinking about it too much. Unfortunately, I know far more about it, and am finding it very hard. Itís very early days and Iím trying not to look too far ahead.

I have found the MND Association website very informative, but have only just discovered the forum. I am sure I will find it really helpful to communicate with people going through similar experiences.
