You’ve found the right place for friends…

AIRdave, I was diagnosed 2 years ago with GBS. Now on my 2nd anniversary, if you want to call it that, I am spending a good part of my day-since I am unable, once again, to be in the gym teaching-reading postings.
You’ll find a lot of information here. Some of us find a lot more here than we do from our Dr.s. With GBS/CIDP being so rare, there aren’t a lot of specialists in our area. But there is a lot of knowlege on this site.

It comes up continually that many of us were very active individuals before this hit us. Makes me wonder.

Sounds like you are doing what you need to do. Hang in there. The hardest part is sitting back when you aren’t used to taking things easy. YOu will find that attitude to be your biggest enemy. When your body says “slow down” you gotta do it.

Hang in there, it is a slow process and always remember that things could be worse.
