Hey I’ve been trying to find another young athlete who is going through this. I have CIDP and have lost 20 pounds due to atrophy so I’m very weak and have some tingling sensations. I hope to be back to normal running and around 50 miles a week and lifting two or three times a week in about a year, and from the sounds of it hopefully it won’t take much more than a year for you, and possibly even less. You might like this video since it’s about a soccer player.

I’m 20 as well (I read some of your other posts on a different thread) and when I get better I intend to be on my college track and cross country teams and be competing at a high level. I WILL do this and no demyelinating nerves will stop me.
Also here are some good pump up songs/comeback songs I like to listen to either doing rehab or just whenever I feel like it.

Stay positive because there are are studies that show that if you stay positive and visualize daily you playing soccer for example, you should have a better prognosis. Let me know if you have any more questions or just want to talk to someone who wants to not only be able to walk normally again but compete athletically at a high level again. I hope this helped.
