I have had GBS three times. I had a demanding job in 1989 and was glad to get a break and have people take care of me (14 months off work). In 2002 I was in another hard stressful job and was glad to be able to retire. I had planned to work another 3 years due to medical insurance issues but found I could retire without worry about that. I love being retired and doing things I enjoy. The Lord has been good to me and I am so thankful I have the health I do.
Let’s see…..positives…..I promised my daughter when I was at my worst that if I got better, we’d take a “real” family vacation this year. In March, we were able to go to Disney World. I am not a ride person, but went on several rides….we blamed it on the new antibodies carousing through my veins from IVIG.
I met many caring health aides and therapists.
Not taking breathing or moving on my own through time and space for granted.
My wife had to cook………..no wait, that would be a negative…sorry!
