Lemin, I am truly very deeply sorry and hope and pray that the diagnosis was in fact inncorrect. I have had two friend who had it so have some sort of insight into what you will be facing if you do have it.
Mate, do not be afraid to let any frustrations out on us at any time. I only wish I could sit down and talk in person.
May God bless you.

Seen the specialist today and she confirmed motor neuron, I can't talk to people on the street other than a slurred few words, at least I can talk to all of you here.

Oh Lemin I'm so sorry! I'm so glad you can 'talk' to us and please let us help you as best we can through this. I'd love to be able to give you a big ole hug right now.
Thank you Fern, I plan to be around here for a while yet

Keep your chin up Lemin.We are here for you.
Good on ya Lemin!
Lemin, that is bloody terrible news.
I say again, if you fell like venting your frustrations on us feel free mate. You are bound to feel fairly angry at times.
Been awhile since we heard from you Lemin. I'm hoping you're just having a break and we'll see you back here soon. You take care of yourself my dear. ((Hugs))

I understand what you will go through as a very close friend of ours suffered from it . The worst part was the frustration at not being himself as he tried to explain to us many times but as long as everyone understands it seems to help .

Improve the Nerve-Muscle Communication
By improving the muscle-nerve communication, the muscles have an increased potential to do what they are capable of, lowering the amount of electrical stimulation (nerve impulse) that is needed in order for the muscle fibre to react favourably i.e. contract.
Yeah, but how?
