Keep on doing the things you love until the disease takes that away. To date it has taken everything I love such as golf, bowling.dancing even singing. I was diagnosed in 2010 and it started to really progress in February of this year. Now my excitement is doing crossword puzzles, checking email, playing PCH and shopping with my wife. I have gone to movies because the accommodations are available to support my oxygen equipment. In other words, make adjustments and keep on living. Your friends,neighbors and relatives appreciate your efforts to not let it define you and get you down.
