Perceptions of ALS
Many people have a strong reaction when they are told that a close friend has ALS. Often, friends don’t know how to react or respond. Sometimes, people opt for distance until they can decide how they will interact with their friend. When you told close friends/relatives that you (or your loved one) had ALS how did they respond? Did you find ways to make them comfortable? Have you been able to tell your friends and loved ones what you need from them, and what you don’t need?
