Hi Nikki,
Thanks for telling us your story………I know that this is probably a scary time for you, many on this forum have faced like circumstances and have a wealth of information to share. Although similarities/comparisons can be drawn from others’ histories, your recovery will be unique to you. As Dawn mentioned, you are fortunate to not have been impacted more severely. It is important to ask questions and become informed as much as possible. Your pain needs to be controlled…..when that happens you will be in a much better place to deal with your current situation. Don’t overdue, get plenty of rest…… will take time as the body does not heal itself quickly from the GBS virus. I know how tough this illness can be, don’t allow negativity to govern your life, take satisfaction from being able to grow in the smallest of things each day. Wishing you good things in the days ahead… sure to keep us posted on how you are doing!
