Good and Bad Info

June 11, 2007 at 4:03 pm


This is my first post here. I am recovering from GBS since the end of March beginning of April. There has been a lot of helpful information here for me, but then I read about residuals, etc. and that’s a little scary. I am an RN and knew about GBS from taking care of patients and always told them it would go away. I know it takes a long time to recover and when I am frustrated or depressed about my lack of progress I think back where I was and where I am now. BUT, I was really thinking it would all be gone at some point. My main challenge now is walking and balance and my sense of joint space, as well as terrible fatigue. I have become the nap queen, but feel better afterwards. At what point does someone say, wow, it’s all gone? Or does that ever happen? Other than what I have mentioned, I’m doing great. And as I tell folks, my new motto is it could always be worse. I found I’m very blessed to have so many people who care about me, and realized what’s important and what can wait:)
