    lots of kind hearts are together here in the forum to share, let's fight together against it.

    Hi Jo, so sorry about your wife’s diagnosis. It must be difficult for you both at the moment. I guess that another worrying thing is how to explain MND to your children. There’s age specific booklets available for children from the MND Association that would likely make this easier. If you get in touch with MND Connect
    they can advise how to broach the subject and explain which publications are currently available.

    Look after yourself, Lynne

    Hi Jo, A warm welcome to the forum from me,

    I'm so sorry for your wife's diagnosis... Its such a shock isn't it and I found all the advice overwhelming.

    The forum is a good place for friendship and support from people who really understand. There is always someone to answer a question, whether it is practical or emotional.

    Take care of yourself too,
    Love Debbie x

    A warm welcome to you, Jo from Pinner, and to your wife too.

    These early days are very tough, an emotional rollercoaster, but it does get easier.

    Look after yourself too, it's not all about the person with the MND!

    We're here for you both.

    Love Ellie.

    Sorry about the diagnosis.
    Welcome to the place where you can ask anything and there will be someone who will offer advice. You can also let off steam, share your experiences and even have a bit of a laugh, although laughing is probably the last thing on your minds just now.

    Just know people understand and care
