Hi, I’m Christine Gilmore
A medically retired RN. Passionate about sharing our journey with ALS. I am married to Chris, a wonderful, caring, and loving husband. Then there is Phoebe, a cuddly, quirky, and entertaining cat.
It was as far back as 2016 when I first noticed subtle symptoms that my body was changing. As many people with ALS say " I was in the best shape of my life".
I had been an avid hiker yet I began to struggle, on occasion, when hiking uphill. I also began to trip and fall. All of these symptoms only happened while hiking, so I thought I was getting out of shape. In 2017 a physician told me that there was nothing wrong with me. The fall of 2018 I met with a new physician, and we began the process to determine what was going on with my body.
In 2019, I was told to get my affairs in order. I was told that I have ALS.
