      Dear Friends of GBS family,
      I am at home now and have not been on the forum since January 11th. What has been happening? I have a question, does anyone have the feeling that the lower leg (anything below the knee) is totally gone? Like you stretch your leg out and do not notice that your lower leg is really out there? Do you know what I mean? I don’t “see” or feel my lower leg and would like to know how that comes back? Will it come back or is it just part of the process?:eek:
      It has been a long road to finally get home! Whenever I am at therapy and have time to type on the internet, this is the first place that I go to find out how everyone is doing. I have a special wheelchair van come to my house to pick me up to go to therapy everyday and they charge $8.25 PER RIDE. I can go 100 miles on a half gallon of gas. I hope that I can get on Medicaid to help with the expenses of all this.
      Well, I better let everyone go for now and hopefully I will be able to keep better track of everyone.
      See ya,

      Hi Teresa and welcome back 🙂

      Glad to hear that you are getting PT. I am pretty sure that it would qualify for reimbursement from medicade. Check your phonebook and with your city/county usually they have transportation for those with disabilities which are much cheaper. Here they have a handicap accessible van and the taxis also will pick you up/drop you off for appointments for much cheaper then that. Something to look into.

      Hi Teresa,

      So glad you are home!!! Since it has been a while when I first got sick (10 years next month), it is hard for me to remember when I finally got my legs back. I do remember that was one of my first weird symptoms – my balance went as every step I took I felt like I was missing a stair. I think this is what you are talking about.

      One thing I do remember about healing is that it is very slow. You are on your next phase of recovery that requires lots of patience with yourself. So please take it easy and get plenty of rest! And then rest some more.
