GBS at 18 (axonal)

July 30, 2006 at 9:38 pm

I want to encourage you and through you, your sister, to do as much as she can and celebrate the small victories. And, yes, they are victories. Small things like eating peas and actually swallowing them. Pushing ourselves in the chair instead of being pushed. And the final victory for me, was, post gbs, driving myself for the first time. I am 45 now and experiencing some post-GBS issues, but they are nothing in comparison to the onset and recovery. Following onset and through recovery and post, I would visit with other GBSer’s and help them to keep an upbeat attitude and trust me it is “all about the ‘Tude”
To Small Victories….Nat
