    newly diagnosed

    hiya all. new member and diagnosed last week with bulbar onset MND. Since last year I had a suspicion that it could be MND and have known since December of the testing for it. Obviously it did not soften the blow when I had the diagnosis last week. I had done my research though and this group helped me alot in reading peoples struggles, views and insight etc so I thank you for that.

    shelly21 Welcome to a group that no-one ever wanted to join. Here you are amongst friends who have or whose partners or families have this horrible disease. Feel free to ask whatever you like, nothing is taboo or silly. We support each other and have all laughed and cried together.

    Take care my friend and keep smiling as difficult as it is at the moment.

          Hello Tracy. Since you've already been on the site for a while you've perhaps had a chance to get get know people on here. Even if diagnosis suspected it doesn't make it any less of a bombshell. x

            Hi Shelley, Welcome to the site and hope you find support from its members.It’s a shock when diagnosed and I remember a year ago when I was diagnosed.Initially I just did what I could practically until I felt ready to ask anything .
            Best wishes

                            Hi Shelly. Welcome to forums and as others have said ask away.

                            You certainly must be shocked to your core about your diagnosis. We are all here to help you and one another. Hugs, Lynne x
