    Adios amigos

    Well my friends and fellow sufferers, I have finally succumbed to MND our common denominator.

    With a heavy heart I’ve decided to have my BIPAP removed in the local hospice.
    I was diagnosed in September 2017 while living abroad and came home 2 years ago hoping a drug trial would be more available having tried most of the scams/cures in Asia.
    I have had great support from UCLH, especially the respiratory department and Maidstone MNDA group… The forum is a great source of information and unity and if there’s anything good which has come through this experience it’s meeting such lovely unselfish people I would never had known existed.
    Good luck and love to you all Jerry x

        Ah Jerry, thanks for the effort of posting and I agree with what Ellie said xx
        ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

        I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.
