That is fantastic, Good for you Emily.
After climbing that rock wall you can face anything, you are a brave, strong young lady! Keep it up 😀
I bet the smile went right across her face and lasted for a very long time.
Thanks for sharing and making us all smile.

Doctors probably get two days of neuro issues in year one of med school before they go and ‘specialize’. Given the extent and length of med training… two days doesn’t last long?
Linda, and also Cookiegirl, you both put a very human and personal face to what is CIDP! The more of us that do this? Educate patients, doctors, therapists, nurses and all? The better off our world and our CASE for care will be.
And, don’t forget? You might encounter one of these folks you’ve lectured to any time in the future [tho I surely hope not!]. These folks will KNOW that there’s more to the ‘package’ than meets the eye and treat you accordingly.
That is great news! I am happy for you and your family. However, I will keep all of you in my thoughts too. It is long and scary road for everyone involved….stay strong! This board is so helpful, and it will be great to have your daughter on here too! Best wishes to all of you, and please keep us posted.
I’m glad you had a great time at the symposium. I didn’t find out about the symposium in enough time to make arrangements to attend. 🙁
Are the symposiums annual and held in the same location? I definitely plan to attend the next one as this forum is the first time I’ve been able to communicate with others who are dealing with GBS/CIDP.
