The ALS Rules

The ALS Rules

1. Don’t always follow the rules.

2. Know that ALS doesn’t always follow its own rules.

3. Remember that I am not the only one who has my ALS.

4. Focus on what I can do, not what I can’t do.

5. Have an agenda for every day.

6. Pace myself (and Maureen).

7. Find ways to laugh as much as possible.

8. Have contact every day with family or friends.

9. Focus on and spend time with positive people and things.

10. Contemplating courage for the rest of my life is overwhelming, but courage for today is possible.
