Knowing this disease will break me down is strange. Surely as my Mum had it years ago I am right at the beginning. Apart from excess saliva a little problem talking and the odd ache I feel fine. A lot of this is psychological as I know what happened to my Mum.
All I can do is see how every day goes. My body will break down but I am going to be strong and fight it.
Speech therapy will be coming soon. I need to sleep properly at night. Massages and stretches will be useful.
George is going to look after me when I need the help and I love her so much.
