Welcome to my blog. I have had ALS for 10 years now.

Since I started this blog in June 2008 I've had amazing feedback. Family, friends, people from all over North America, Australia, Scotland, England, and places I can't recall, have commented, encouraged and corresponded. I had no idea when Cynthia taught me how to set this up, how much I would love posting and how many people would read it. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped propel this therapeutic exercise into a daily routine. All of you, both friends and visitors, are now part of my blog family. Welcome.

I can do it!

I do exercises with my care workers to maintain flexibility. As you can see in the picture, my right arm is good, my left arm only lifts half way(muscles have weakened and some atrophy is obvious). By someone lifting the arm for me, my shoulder doesn't seize. These exercises are called "Range of Motion"(ROM) and are recommended for all ALS patients.
