    Thanks for the info, it makes sense! Before GBS, I used to have a few issues sleeping every now and then, but ever since, I wake up in the middle of the night almost every single night. I am also almost always tired, even after just a normal day at a desk job. The tough part is people think I’m just lazy and don’t understand.

    Yes, I was talking about antidepressants. I’ve tried a ton before. Most have not done anything, and a couple made it worse. I also have very high anxiety, and that seems to have gotten worse post GBS. I also used to be able to sleep through the night, but every since GBS, I wake up in the middle of the night almost every night. Sometimes I fall back asleep other times I’m up for hours.

    Even on nights I do seem to get enough sleep, I always get tired more early in the day than I ever did before GBS. By the end of a work day at a non physical job, I am too tired to work out. So I have also gained a lot of weight too that I worry I can’t lose. I hope I can still improve and recover further because right now, I am just existing and making it through each day.

    Of course it’s the depression, why do I even ask? I give up on recovery. GBS ruined me permanently, I’ll never be the same and nothing will ever be fun again.

    So regarding issues I am having with my immune system and getting sick often over 2 years after GBS, could the fatigue be contributing to it now? Neurologists have told me the fatigue can linger years after GBS. Will that ever get better?

    Or is it more the depression? Ever since GBS and losing my physical form and everything I worked so hard for, I have not been remotely close to as happy as I was before. I’ve been miserable. Being depressed for over 2 years can take its toll I suppose. Pills do not help either.

    It’s been over a year and a half since getting GBS. The medical professionals kept telling me I could recover fully in a half a year to a year. I get angry thinking about it because I believe they lied to me. I’m not even past my mid 30’s but believe my life is pretty much ruined since getting GBS. Things seem like they will never be as good as they used to. I’ll never be able to do the things normal people do like own a house, have kids, go on a vacation, play sports with friends, etc. I’ve already missed so much. Everything that gave me joy is gone now. Does it ever get better mentally? I feel I’ve been in a deep depression ever since it happened and wonder if I will ever find happiness in life again.
