Hi. My name is Richard McBride and I am living with AL:S, although for how much longer is a bit of a guess, perhaps somkewhere between 6 and 12 months. I was diagnosed with this terrible affliction in November 2012, an affliction you may know as Motor Neuron Disease or Lou Gehrig's Disease.

I've taken to writing about my progression, telling my story at times in excrutiating detail, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking. My blog is On the same page you will find poetry, travel articles, and even the odd short story.

My life has been changed dramatically by ALS, but I am still living. Take time to check it out, and if you feel so moved, support me here as a Patron.
