    I can totally relate. Sometimes I just don't care anymore. The only thing that really makes me laugh is playing with my 4 3/4 yr. old grandson!

    Do you have the chance to get out and do things with other people or are you totaly confined at home?

    I've noticed the same thing about myself, I find it hard to laugh anymore. This Illness is crippling, not just to the body but to the soul as well. But I fight it with everything I have. When I notice myself getting sad, I do everything I can to change my outlook, but it is getting harder. I've been sick for about 7 years now, and it does take its toll.
    Can you think of anything do to to keep our spirits up?
    I have a funny dog, and cat, and they do their best to keep a smile on my face. I also live with my mom, whose got ALS,
    and she keeps me from staying Blue too long, I need to stay positive for her.
    Anyway, find a positive force in your life (even if it's something silly) and hang on to it. It might help get you through.
    Also remember, you have friends here.. :)
