    New to forum

    Hello all, my name is Lynn and I am new to the group. My sister was diagnosed with MND 12 months ago and the heart breaking news has devastated the family. I'm hoping that this forum will help all of us.

          Lynn Hi Lynn so sorry to hear about your Sister. I hope she and your family are coping the best you can. I care for my husband who has had this condition for almost five years. This forum is great for advise, information, a laugh and a good old moan with tears on occasions. Thinking of you all.xx

                  Hi Lynn, welcome to this wonderful forum full of amazing, brave, courageous, funny, supportive, loving and warm people. So sorry your sister's diagnosis has bought you here.

                  My mum and I found the forum a huge help (she was diagnosed March 2020 and passed away last September). I would sit with her every night whilst she relaxed in a bath to share the comments, and she would laugh and cry. There are also some incredibly useful tips on the message threads for how to cope practically with all the many changes that MND throws your way. I hope you feel the sense of kindred spirit present here on the forum and it gives your family strength to meet whatever challenges lie ahead.

                  All the best, Deborah

                      Thank you all for welcoming me to the forum. All of a sudden I don't feel as alone now in this awful situation. I am so frightened of what my sister has got to battle with in the future. Its the saddest time ever.

                          My sister has ALS bulbar. She's trying to be brave. I can't imagine how it is for her to deal with. I'm scared of asking how things are going as afraid of upsetting her. We were so close but we seem to be drifting apart. I love and miss her so much.

                            My Dad has ALS Bulbar as well (diagnosed May 21, first symptons may 20). It's hard to see them going through it.

                            It's difficult sometimes to know what to say but now is the time to be honest and say how much she means to you and to ask her how you can support her best. I think just knowing that you're there will be a big comfort to your sister.
