The Journey Begins

This is a very serious, very sober, take on ALS and all it’s challenges and problems.  I feel that no one out there truly categorizes ALS in their blogs….

Just kidding.  I can’t even type that with a straight face!  No, this won’t be serious, this will be a highly irreverent, stereotype busting, REAL look at life after the ALS diagnosis.  Because when I went into that office, I was living a regular life.  When I left, I was already a marked man and treated as symptom and not a person.  I’m here to tell you there is a lot of time that happens after the diagnosis.

And I’m not dead yet!

Thanks for joining me!

I like the sound of “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. It has a strong, masculine, athletic ring to it.

  1. I love reading the ChronicALS!! I’m catching up on the stories. When I read them I actually hear it in your voice…kind of like when you used to do “Story time with Joe!” at work… you’re definitely one of the funniest people I know. I miss talking and working for you.
    But this is funny… “ I like the sound of “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. It has a strong, masculine, athletic ring to it.”
