    Hello i would like to chat

    Hi I'm all in a whirlwind this week after being told that my diagnosis is veering towards Bulbar palsy. Feel quite alone and very scared right now

    Welcome. I was diagnosed with Bulbar onset MND in November. The time waiting for a diagnosis is awful and I still feel very scared and alone so know exactly how you feel. You will find lots of support here. I have only just joined the forum but everyone has been so welcoming and helpful. x
    Bulbar onset diagnosed Nov 21. No speech but limbs ok so far.

                Hello, I’m sorry to hear of your diagnosis, it’s a very frightening and lonely place to be. You will find a good support from experienced and knowledgeable people on this forum. Best wishes.
                Diagnosed 18th May 2021 with sporadic ALS. Limb onset. Terrified of not being able to breathe easily.

                  Thank you. Still hoping for a different diagnosis after anti body tests but I suspect I'm hoping in vain. I knew from the eyes of one of the neurologists before they even told me

                    Hello Hairbsb - I'm at a similar diagnostic stage to you I think, although mine is MND ALS variant (to be confirmed).

                    I'm already bombarded with referrals and appointments and trying to process it. Unfortunately my diagnosis has come a bit late so things feel very rushed. I ended up sulking in bed this afternoon 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.

                        Yes, I'm always so tired. I am learning to pace myself and do as little as possible. Can't work any more so that helps.

                          Had to come home from work today as I just felt overwhelmed with it all. I told my boss as its quite apparent from the way I speak something's not right. Haven't told my children yet until I get a firm diagnosis but may tell them before that so they are aware. My husband is being strong for me right now. We currently are taking turns in crumbling

                            Hi Hairbsb . I just wanted to say a warm welcome to the forum. There's lots of friendship and support on here.

                            The uncertainty of the days when you are waiting for a firm diagnosis is just awful and its not surprising you feel exhausted. I remember veering between hope , that it was something else and despair. In a very strange way it was almost a relief to know for sure so we could tell people and move on.

                            Sending you big hugs,
                            Love Debbie x

                              Deb can you tell me if there is a way to go straight to new posts rather than going to my outlook as one day I won't be able to go that. Ps you are so right
