Reply To: Effects of GBS over 2 years later

You mentioned pills but not which kind. I’d assume antidepressants? Have you had a prescription? Not to be nosy, but. Before GBS, I tried anti-ds for severe insomnia (twice)… and gained a lot of weight each time. While I was in the hospital, I was put on them again. (Not necessarily against my will because I was too out of it from being close-enough-to-death for me to remember that I never wanted to try them again and why.) So, because I could barely move much less exercise, I gained over 100 pounds. And I never felt any “better” or had improved sleep. All 3 times.
Not that you will, but some people gain a significant amount of weight on those medications.

Please don’t “give up on recovery”. Be as good as you can be, take a day/hour/afternoon (whatever) off once in a while, keep learning and trying.
