Crying


I was talking with my caregiver tonight and she called me courageous. And that trigger me somehow because I starting crying. Really hard. And it lasted for about three minutes. I don't want to die. But there is noting I can do about it so I cried. That is all.

Thank you all of you for your support. I had a touching moment with my caregiver and I hope none of you got the idea I was shamed by the tears. I am not, I find it to be cathartic. I get slightly annoyed when I cry at movies and really annoyed when a commercial brings a tear to my eye. But as promised, I am living my life wide open and unfiltered, like I always have. Russ

Russ,

A few years ago, you asked me if I really wanted to live to be 90. I said yes, as long as I was in good health. Of course neither of us had any idea that you would be confronted with ALS. I have no words of wisdom to offer. I absolutely HATE that you are having to go through this. Your post, today, just reminded me of that conversation. I don't know if I would have stuck it out as well as you have. I would definitely have shed a lot of tears.


I believe that this life is not the end for us. I believe that you will be free of this monster, and go on to…
