Facilitated 73 support groups for people living with ALS, family caregivers, and loved ones
This was such a valuable experience … listening to others stories, as painful as it may have been, gave me huge a ‘has—I am not alone, the way I’m feeling is “normal” for what is happening--- and in all of the anguish, there is much to still be lived and hoped for. So I want to let you know that I’m very grateful …you did such a fine job listening and responding to us all. I came away with some relief, a few laughs for sure, and a feeling of grief being lifted a bit just by coming together and sharing. People were so open and honest – it encouraged me to step back and just take a breath and remember we are not defined by this disease.
