second time was much worse

I had it in the 1986 and it was fairly mild. I had could still walk, but slowly. When I got it twenty years later, I could not use my arms or legs. BUT looking on the bright side, the stress I was under before my second GBS was much worse. I am of the belief that GBS is like a tennis serve. Stress is like throwing the ball in the air and something like an infection or vaccination slams the ball. I like how they say it is rare to get it a second time. Yeah right. It started coming in September and peaked in October 2006. I am walking now but not fully recovered. I think we need to feel in control so I hope that avoiding stress will let me avoid this a THIRD time. You can read my old posts for more details.
