A few weeks ago, I Goggled Stephen Hawking because I had heard a quote about how much he appreciated life. He is probably the most famous person living with ALS. He has been living with it for about 45 years and still is working and enjoying life–with a lot of assistance, but, nevertheless, inspirational. Search out his official website on the web and read what he says about his illness. It will inspire you as it would any of us with neurologic illnesses and limitations in abilities. I pray for peace and that you also find a way to continue in life despite this diagnosis to appreciate each day and each person.
