Reply To: Getting sick after GBS

It’s been over a year and a half since getting GBS. The medical professionals kept telling me I could recover fully in a half a year to a year. I get angry thinking about it because I believe they lied to me. I’m not even past my mid 30’s but believe my life is pretty much ruined since getting GBS. Things seem like they will never be as good as they used to. I’ll never be able to do the things normal people do like own a house, have kids, go on a vacation, play sports with friends, etc. I’ve already missed so much. Everything that gave me joy is gone now. Does it ever get better mentally? I feel I’ve been in a deep depression ever since it happened and wonder if I will ever find happiness in life again.
