I hope so. My dad doesn't handle it very well. Being overly emotional is part of the ALS too. When my mom starts crying it takes a long time for her to stop. He keeps telling her to stop. I think he takes it as a personal insult in some ways. Almost like he's not taking care of her needs or something. When she cries like that with me I just let her cry. I rarely say anything. I think it just makes it worse.
