Positive attitude and ALS?
Did you know that the average age of ALS onset is 55? People can be diagnosed at any age, and there have been cases in people as young 12 years of age that have been diagnosed. However, nearly 80% of people are diagnosed between the ages of 40 and 70. Many people with ALS go on and live long productive lives. I have a cousin who was diagnosed in 2005, although she has some physical limitations, she is still actively parenting and volunteering. Stephen Hawkins is another great example. He had 3 children after being diagnosed with ALS. His professional achievements were just as amazing. What are you thoughts regarding a pALS’s attitude and positive thinking and how it possibly impacts the progression of ALS?
