There is a very interesting posting on another blog about another ALS patient, who has 3 daughters, each of whom are handling their mom's illness very differently. Please check it out.
One of the things I have learned is that each person has his/her own way of coping with a friend or family member with a serious illness. I'd be interested in everybody's take on this entry above, after you read it, either in a comment on this blog, or a private email.
Until 2004, I was an independent and active woman -- a former airline sales exec and then a high school educator. Then my body kept betraying me. I was finally diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease -- confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak. With life at a slower pace, I learned to live a more conscious and mindful life -- buying, eating and other choices. I listen instead of talking, and I observe instead of running and rushing.
