My brother in law is 47 and has ALS.
We are trying to find some peace with the fact he is failing at such a rapid pace.
Making matters worse, he has only one child, who is severely autistic.
His son is 21, nonverbal, and can be very aggresive.
He gets extremely frustrated locked in a body he cannot control, unable to speak or connect.
Soon his father will also be locked in a body he cannot control, unable to speak.
I know there is a life lesson here that will bring me some peace, but like autism, I feel I’m missing a few pieces to the puzzle.
Having re-read Tuesdays With Morrie, I think maybe the lesson is how to say goodbye.
Acceptance and love must be the answers.
Thanks Morrie, you certainly were “A Teacher to the Last.”
Thanks to Mitch Albom, you continue to do so.
Has anyone else had any moments of clarity in saying goodbye?
