How many of us, upon receiving that kind of diagnosis would simply "opt out" of putting their families through the care required?

2 of my kids are Drs. Both has "offered" to help me if that is my choice. This actually is extremely calming to me. 15 years of care for my sweet dad--NOBODY should have to go through that.

I know a classmate who has had it for 25 years. He was fairly young when he was diagnoised.

I'd curious about this....Michael J Fox has had it for what seems like more than 20 years,

My dad was not dxed until he'd had it for about 8-10 years---but that's a guessitmate.

All I know is it's one horrible disease and it scares the bejeebers out of me.
