My 26-year-old boyfriend was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig Disease...Till now, I still can't accept the truth that he's gonna leave me forever someday in the future. For the past 3 months, I've been doing research on what the disease is and possible solutions to cure it or at least alleviate the situation... But the more I read, the less I feel optimistic. There is no cure for it and even treatment will be of little help to slow down the proceeding of it. We went to the best hospitals in this country, only to get the same answer from the doctor that it is among the five terminal diseases in the world. If taken good care of, the life expectancy of the patient may be prolonged up to 3 years. Right now, I quit my job so as to do prompt home remedies when he needs me most. He takes riluzole tablets on a regular basis but I'm afraid that too much intake of the pills may further affect his neuros. I've known him since we are childs. And I just can't imagine my life without him. I just hope someone with similar experiences can give me some clue on how to handle this mess. The last thing I wanna do is give up on him but will my boyfriend be another Hawking? This really has been too much for me.
