    My mother died of ALS. It's a horrible, horrible disease that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Anything that they can do to promote ALS awareness has my blessing.

    If I ever get ALS, I'm going to seriously consider putting a gun to my head. That's how bad it is.

    I did it a couple times.

    I've had many clients with ALS and like @gwartney said it is an absolutely horrible disease. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. It's probably the slowest, most painful way to die. The emotional toll it takes on family members is heart breaking.

    For those who don't know ALS is the actual title for Lou Gerhig's Disease.

    I should do it...but after spending a couple of nights a week, for his last six months with my bud who passed from it... feeding, helping move him in his chair every 15 minutes, holding his sippy straw and just being there as he degraded to nothing....when most of our pals stopped showing up. I kind of feel like I paid my dues

    Worst thing I've ever witnessed

    Nope, I paid my way out of it, which as I understand it, is the whole point of it to begin with.
