Start again with one foot in front of the other. Don’t dwell and ruminate on what used to be. Be positive. Ask your doctor for some physical therapy if you’ve not had any yet.

There is good information on this site for your partner. For example, “Living with GBS
Recovery may occur over six months to two years or longer. A particularly frustrating consequence of GBS is long-term recurrences of fatigue and/or exhaustion as well as abnormal sensations including pain and muscle aches. These can be aggravated by ‘normal’ activity and can be alleviated by pacing activity and rest..”

Look over all the benefits and resources available here. And, Happy Holidays! Yes, be happy everyday, every thought.

And, yes, partners, families, and friends almost always and universally do not get it because they neither see, comprehend nor empathize with your disease and it’s consequences. In an ideal world, your kind and caring partner would do their own research about GBS in attempts to assist and understand you.
