MS is baby stuff compared to ***
« on: April 09, 2014, 08:59:31 PM »
1st I feared ALS, ruled it out because of how low a chance I have of getting it, then shifted to fearing MS. Now I'm back to fearing ALS, and let me tell you... If you're afraid of MS, keep it that way. Don't upgrade to ALS fears. It's agonizing!

••••• if you don't know what ALS is, do NOT go find out. You'll be sorry you did because the fear will drive you mad••••••

I don't think it's fair to call other people's fears "baby stuff"
It's true. Most people with MS can live long, healthy lives with proper treatment. but the thought of possibly being debilitated/having to base your life around a disease where you never know if you're going to lose your ability to walk without assistance etc., well, I think that is a very fair fear.
Also, telling people on this site not to look up ALS if they fear MS doesn't seem reasonable. A lot of people will :p

Yeah, you're just asking to send a lot of people into panics. People aren't going to not look it up.

I keep on hearing about ALS lately on here and it's peaking my curiosity but I refuse to Google it.

Dementia early onset that would be the worst i think. At least you are lucid with ALS.

You are afraid of a disease you just don't have. There is not even 00000.1% chance that you have it.
