Hi. I’m Patty and I’m a wife and mom in my 50’s dealing with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis – ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, or Motor Neurone Disease). I was diagnosed in 2012 but had symptoms as far back as ’09. I have been on hospice since February, 2015.
Blogging has become my therapy. It’s not easy. Since the spring of 2014, after losing the use of my hands and voice, the only way I can “type” is with my Tobii eye-tracking communication device. Everything written since then has been typed using only my eyes. Yay technology!
This is my journey through uncharted waters. People ask me constantly how I’m doing. The short answer is “OK.” I add “so far” in my head most times. So that’s what I’m calling this little corner of the interwebz, OK, So Far. So if you’re up for it, come along on this roller coaster ride known as my life. I can’t promise much in the way of entertainment, but I’ll try not to be too boring! Thanks for stopping by.
