kitze20, you don’t say what treatment you were given but early treatment with IVIG is important. Was your diagnosis GBS? The important thing to remember is that you will improve. At your age you have a very good chance of a full recovery but it will take time and everyone is different. We all understand your emotional condition right now. It is very difficult to accept help when you have been the caregiver, but it is important to remain positive. You can control your attitude even if you don’t have total control of your body right now. This is going to be a stressful time for you and your family. Your folks want to help you like you have helped them in the past. Let them. Work on your PT but don’t overdo it. If your body says it’s tired, let it rest. It is important that you reach a point in your struggle where you take control away from the GBS. It starts with your mind. Read the posts here. Some help. Encourage your support group to visit this site and other sites to learn what is going on. Keep your head up and keep moving forward. Tomorrow will be better than today, each day. Stay strong.
