GUYS!!! I say all this with the sincerest appreciation and respect for your fears. You are not insane to fear ALS. Your fears are real. Your ALS is not real.
None of you have ALS! I bet that in the history of this board, not ONE SINGLE PERSON has been on it that has ALS. Maybe I am wrong, but I am willing to bet GOOD MONEY.
None of you have ALS. If you had ALS, you would know. So few people have ALS. The odds are so painfully small, it is like worrying about being hit with a tractor falling from the sky. I imagine someone has died that way, a tractor fell on them out of nowhere. But trust me, I can almost guarantee every single one of you that NONE OF YOU HAVE, WILL HAVE, OR COULD HAVE ALS.
I am not a doctor and I am not an expert but my reading of ALS is comprehensive. I have never feared it.
MS is also VERY RARE.
ALS IS MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MORE RARE THAN MS. MUCH. MUCH!!!!!!!!!!
Big hugs to all of you!!!!
