One year ago for me too!

It was a year ago for me too well not eactly but close enough. I was hospitalized for 2 1/2 months and unable to talk or eat for 1 1/2 of that. It was a nightmare feeling so useless and helpless. I went in november of 09 and didnt get home until mid january of last year. I missed all the holidays and new years. I didnt have as much luck getting diagnosed so quickly as you and almost died in ICU and had to be put on a ventilator. I went through all the same test as you and also feel the lighting and pins and needles shocks throughout my body. I still have numbness in my feet and hands. Despite all of this, I have a positive attitude such as your self and I hope you will continue to get better and stronger. What has helped me is walking everyday. As soon as I left the wheel chair behind, I walked alot despite the pain. I rested alot but I also worked hard every day and now I’m running and playing basketball! Its a wierd kind of soreness I feel. It is a very deep and horrible pain, but I’m blessed to even feel pain…. I’ll take it each and everyday if it means I can be here for my daughter. My life is great right now and I’m working on improving everyday. Take care.
