Hi, JAC. Sounds like you are making an awesome comeback! I am now one year and nine months into recovery and am not as far along as you. Reading that you can now run gives me great hope, thank-you for that.

Re having a relapse, please try not to dwell on that. My specialist told me that relapses are rare and if you start to recover quickly, your chances of not having it happen again are even better. Considering how well you’re doing, sounds like you’ll be fine. Can’t offer you a personal guarantee, wish I could. 🙂

Those rare occasion symptoms are special, aren’t they? I don’t know about you but they always make me stop to consider if I’m getting sick again. It’s simply an “Oh no!” panic moment, which passes quickly. These types of things typically happen when GBS patients get tired. Seems to throw things off. The good news is that rest takes care of it.

Be kind to yourself, you’re doing great!
