Hello everyone out there. I have a feeling that I will need the companionship of this forum in the days to come. I was diagnosed with MND in January this year, but as time goes on I feel the need to connect with fellow sufferers. I have bulbar onset, and my community support is falling into place but as sufferer of the condition I feel isolated. At present my symptoms are developing only gradually....slurred speech and some difficulties chewing and swallowing. Also some weakness in arms and hands. I want to stay positive and enjoy what I can but the coronavirus is now preventing this, as it will be for all of us. How is it affecting everyone else?
