Two years has passed, more or less, and, for some reason, I now have to re-light and write about my emotional fire that truthfully has no reason to burn but I won't say why, now, for years of living amongst ALS has left me broke and now living in a far greater anxious situation as ALS left my family in tatters.
If I did the ice bucket scenario, I would just assume drown myself. I won't continue writing this tragedy without someone who believes in me and with the financial opportunity to keep me writing. I will leave the comments open and see what happens unless it gets to be irritating and pointless. My path is soon to splinter and I just don't know where I will go after 21 years of living amongst ALS.
Keep on dunking but know why you are doing it and how the 30,000+ American families afflicted with the disease stay strong and committed knowing that research and product development can make living amongst ALS and living with ALS more hopeful and with a better quality of life from the generous donations of all involved.
Maybe in the cold winter time people can dunk themselves with scalding water to really show their commitment to find a cure for this bastard of a disease called ALS.
