An Eye Opener

I am currently recovering from GBS. I got home from the hospital in Feb 09. I found out that I had a stroke while fighting to survive GBS. (The eye doctor told me when I came to him complaining about a loss of peripheral vision in my left eye.) I was thinking some of the symptoms you all talked about, i.e., memory loss, struggling to find words, etc. were the result of my stroke. I guess the GBS probably helped cause them along with the stroke. I will probably never know which caused which. But it gives me hope that I may get over some of these symptoms. That is the good thing about GBS. There is always a chance of further recovery.

This time last year, I is was flat on my back in the hospital. Now, I am up and about. I can pretty well take care of myself. So the problems of memory loss and not being what I was mentally are small compared to that. I always try to keep that in mind and remember that with GBS there is always a chance of getting better. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know I repeated myself but it is worth repeating.

You folks take care. ๐Ÿ˜‰
