I am 24 yrs old and I came down with GBS in Oct 2011. I was a former athlete, am still a musician, and did great academically. This drastic change in my life has been hard because these are supposed to be my prime years of life. I do not lose faith though, because everything happens for a reason. I am a devout Christian and I believe God will heal me in His time. And even if not, He's still aesome. I just want to encourage everyone here that you are never alone and put your trust in God. No matter what the doctors say, God is the ultimate, greatest physician. We are all still alive, and that's what is most important. I'm missing out on part of my fomer life before GBS-work, going out w/family&friends, driving, being independent, etc., but I still have to stay positive and uplifted. If people stop calling or visiting, you're still never alone. God is there! Talk to Him and express your feelings to Him. Even if you don't believe, just give Him a try. I did, and I'm never turning back. Be strong, be encouraged!!!! Isaiah 53:5-"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities....and with his stripes we are healed."
