Reply To: not so much a question as reaching out.

I am 18 years post GBS and it sounds strange, but I am glad I got it. It made me open up my eyes and get my priorities straight. I also used to sing, but never had the guts to do it in front of anyone, and was very disappointed that I had no voice for 1 year. After I got my voice back, I worked on it and ended up singing in a band! I would have never done that had it not been for GBS. It sounds weird, but I really am glad I got it. I am now the Liaison for the KC area and have met a lot of great people. I am glad I can visit patients in the hospital and give them hope. I was totally paralyzed and was on a vent for 2 weeks. I am not back 100%, but I thank God everyday that I am here at all. It really helped me to get on a antidepressent for a few years after, maybe that would help you.

Hope this helped,
