gotta get your sleep
I had a mild cause of GBS and I still need LOTS of sleep 8-10 hours. It sounds like that’s the common experience and probably what you need too. I’ve found interrrupted sleep isn’t as good either, so then I need more. I like one member’s humorous answers for your boyfriend’s behavior. If he’s really the great guy you believe him to be, then sit him down and tell him it’s important to you that he learn about GBS and the life altering effect it has on you. If after that he won’t do it, then you can question the depth of his devotion, seriously. It’s going to be hard for him to understand since he didn’t go through it too, but if he makes a good faith effort to learn and understand, AND improve his behavior about it, then you’ve got a relationship that’s workable. Good luck and good communicating.
