Doing better with my ALS fears
« on: August 28, 2014, 11:55:04 AM »
I've calmed down and am sleeping better, but instill have some way to go.  I think time and treatment will help.  I mean really time should already be comforting but for some reason the logical side of my brain is in a struggle with the hypochondriac side.  With 2-3 years of off and on "symptoms" you'd think I'd be able to convince myself that my twitches and perceived weakness are benign.  I have calmed down on the reassurance test a little but still find myself testing my strength.  For a brief moment I thought I was having issue in hand and a strength.  So I found a pull up bar, grabbed a stopwatch, jumped and grabbed with one hand and hung with only one hand each side and was able to do 26 seconds on my left hand and 27 on my right.  That should tell me I am not having issues there huh?  Anyways, thankful to find a place like this where I feel that I am not alone.  Thanks.

I'm glad to hear you're doing better with self-testing and worrying!  And geez, you're fine, I can't hold my own weight up on a bar for one second with both hands!  (I don't have ALS either; I'm just out of shape!)
