ALS/ LOU GERHIG'S DISEASE

Message 2 of 2

First I would like to say Hello as I am new here, Looking for anyone else dealing with terminal illness to chat with and get advice. I'm 52 and this is the first time in my life I have been unemployeed. I'm trying to deal with not being able to work and with my illness loosing my abilities to walk, move and waiting to die. It's a lot to deal with and I am experiencing so frustration that causes anger. Dr. says that's normal but they don't tell you how to go from being alone and independent for over 20 years; working as a health care giver for 33 years and then having to be dependent on others for everything. 

so any and all advice is welcome. 

Thank you for your ime. Norma
