Hi kitze20, Like you I too have recently had a GBS diagnosis turn mine, and my families worlds upside-down. I am close to 2 weeks out of therapy. I worked as hard as I could through everything to get to where I am, which feels like a dead stand still with my paraplegia. I have had to relearn how to get around the house, and the modifications we could make were free.

I hope you begin your recovery quickly and it maintains a more upbeat feeling for you to hold onto.

Also, if you are having a creeping feeling of numbness, what I started was taking a pen or marker, and drawing a line on my leg to mark about where the numbness ended, and sensation began so I could track it as best as possible.

I hope you recover quickly and fully!
