I cried a lot last night thinking of what the future will be for my family now that the only parent we have has this disease. Its so heartbreaking to see her like that, she was once so strong..now she cant even walk alone.Im totally unfamiliar of this disease at first but when we went to see a doctor and was referred to a neurologist, things were not the same. Reading materials did not help either, the situation just depresses me.

I am so sorry about you mother!!!! It is horrible, I know, a member of my family suffers from the same disease too, and it really is heartbreaking. I just suffer of the idea that these people have go losing their strengh, their control over their body and finally depend completely on other people, while their mind is sound and safe, so they just get more and more depressed of their situations. I feel really sorry about your mom, as well about for my family and for all the people that suffer from such diseases

Thank you Eiloin. I wish there is a support group here in our place but as of this time there isn't any. Let's be thankful, at least their mind is not affected. It will be more depressing if that happens. I just trust God, everything happens with a purpose.

I feel sad for you girl..I know it's not that easy to see your mother became ill.. But you can do as a daughter is that give all your support to your mother because a mother is always there for us, but now, she's the one who needs your support and care, so, give it to her. Prayers will do. Talk to God, and say a little prayer for your mom. Dont be depress, and dont allow your self to feel that way..God Bless..

my mom had lung CA .. and the thing is she doesn't smoke. i agree that it is so depressing. it's not only emotional but physically taxing as well. the only thing to hold on to is your faith and never lose that.
