I neither feel obligated nor reluctant to tell people I have ALS. I told my family directly as well as close people at work or friends. At over two years after diagnosis, I’m a little different than many in that most people won’t notice anything wrong. I do at times wear a wrist brace and a couple of things to control finger curl. They don’t usually notice the muscle atrophy in my arm. When people ask about the wrist, I do tell them about my ALS. Sometimes I simply say I have a neuromuscular disease if there is no time.
