Learn to let go....

This one is really HARD. I am a board certified control freak! I wanted (needed!) to have everything be normal. Please try not be as stubborn as I was on this point!! I swear to you on my life...nothing is going to be "normal" anymore. And realistically, now that I'm on the "other side" of ALS, I've learned that "normal" is pretty subjective! I promise you...the only normal, is what really "is", here and now, this very minute, cold hard facts. While completely counter-intuitive, by letting go and living totally in the present (do what you can, with what you have right now and worry about the rest another time) you actually gain control. Trust me...I'm still working on this, two and a half years later....but I've almost got it!
