    Sadly, it is the nature of MND. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy today and shorthand to English converters tomorrow. It is important to embrace new technology if you wish to live.

    It's just bad enough people thinking I'm a moron when I try and speak, then if this forum became like that I would be killing myself a !ot earlier.

    Sometimes we mouth our thoughts!
    ok threatening to give my husband a diy peg was probably an evil thought 😈

    Thinking of you today dee i hope it works out.
    I think i have been able to type for so long that i now find it difficult to write. I can't write quick enough.
    I'd love to see how those court machines work. Those using them always look so relaxed. 🤔

    I did try short hand but had trouble reading it back. trying to read back short hand done by someone else was even worse. If i could read the wrong scenario into it you wouldn't believe what i would come up with! ha I never have bad thoughts well now and again. Stops me going loopy. 😊

    denise They have a special machine to court type, I seen it on a murder mystery on TV. It is narrower and less keys, you need special training, appartently. i did shorthand, not very good at it but it is useful. I type faster than I can write but not amazingly fast. I type and text for my husband, not heard back from any tech stuff through the MND nurse. Mainly concentrating on getting suitable accomodation as this is a stair nightmare. Got a viewing today. cross fingers.

    The words that I say must be formed by the brain in the first instance. For example, I speak the French, 'Un petit peu', as I write this. The key is to lock onto the brainwaves that are sent down the cortico-bulbar tract. They will reveal themselves by a phonetic cadence encoded as mouth apparatus movements.

    Going a level higher Denise, could mean Gary and I will have to wash your brain out with soap 'n water.
