      Splendid news! Did you do Voice Bank? My friends are asking if I am considering it.
      Hi, I'm Eddie.
      Started with wobbly left ankle in Nov 2020. Diagnosed 22 Oct 2021, confirmed by 2nd opinion 4 days later.
      Still walking and talking, and wondering what the future will bring.

            matthew55 - glad to hear the new voice is imminent. I hope you get on with it OK.

            I've been told I'm too late for voice banking which has upset me. My voice was amazing, but hey ho. I'll probably end up doing darth vadar too, when the time comes (do you think I could ask a celebrity for their voice πŸ€”)
            Diagnosis confirmed Jan 2022 (age 46) after several years ignored/ misdiagnosed.

            Symptoms began in left foot 2017. Now mainly left side, speech and some loss on right side too.

            Unable to walk unaided (powerchair user), poor speech, left hand behaves like a drunk toddler but generally positive and determined.

                TinyLady Mnda paid Β£250 for my voice to be banked by speak unique app but I am not using it at present because it’s not clear enough and loud enough to be easily understood . I think it’s a fairly new app and trying to improve with feedback so I must try it again to see if I can use it, otherwise I feel very guilty that the Mnda kindly paid this not to be used. I bought speech assistant for Β£19 and use one of their female voices, which is louder and clearer. Would be nice to use one similar to my old voice though. Speak Unique can repair voices a bit. Xx
                Diagnosed July 2020, ALS bulbar onset. PEG and ventilator (mainly at night), and pretty poor speech, but legs still about functioning!

                  Heather R - that's useful to know. I'll need to find out. Strangely until diagnosis confirmed that is on hold - but I have endless people coming about adaptations to my house. It seems some actions/ depts need more boxes ticked first... makes me still believe it might all be a mistake...
