Feeling Cheated

Posted by Alex Bryant Sr. on Tue 7th Apr 2020 8:05am

I'm starting to feel cheated of the last bit of life I have left.  I was diagnosed with ALS a couple of months ago.  It took some time to come to terms with having a fatal disease and one that completely takes away your independence at that.  One thing that helped me cope was to create a mini-bucket list of sorts, detailing the things I'd like to do before I become immobile and the people I'd like to see before my time is up.  I had just begun making real plans to see it through when the outbreak struck.  Now it's all about staying home and practicing social distancing.  I can't help but feel a little cheated.
