                  Hello there Tracy. It's hubby with mnd not me so maybe it's easy for me to speak. It took us a good 6 months for the diagnosis to sink in, so take things slowly, we've had good support.
                  Hubby is in his fourth year now and we've still had some great times. Life does go on xxx

                    Hi tracy. I am 4 months in and it's a process that is such a mixed bag of emotions. Grieving for me came a few weeks in. Then I had to regain control and strangely I started to feel a tad better. I have only just started posting having read lots of others posta and taking it all in bit by bit. Some weeks I would pop on the forum once, other times daily.you can learn a lot from this wonderful family.

                      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.

                        Hi Tracy and welcome. I’d say a big well done for joining us all - it took me about a year and I’ve never looked back. We’ve all been there and know how frightening it can be so it really is one day at a time. Xx

                          Looking back I knew I had MND before my diagnosis, and I couldn't wait for said diagnosis because then all the doors opened. Accepting early helps. x
