So earlier today I was worried about me getting ALS, now I'm worried about my fiance (wedding scheduled in 2 days, which I'm sure is the root of my anxiety) getting it.
My reasons for worrying about him consist of the fact that he was a wide receiver in high school when he played sports and it seems like athletes get it more often than other people. He hasn't played competitive sports since he was about 18 (he's 27 now) and it seems like now he just works out from time to time and does some weights and running.
There is no ALS in his family but I just have this nagging feeling that he's going to get it young. It would completely break my heart if he did. In addition, I read that certain amino acids in protein powders can cause ALS, and I know he used to drink them all the time in high school.
I'm just so sad and worried
I know the chances are 1 in 1,000 but for him it just seems so much higher.
