    Holly,

    As a 26-year-old, previously healthy and active female who was diagnosed with AMAN, a variant of GBS, I feel very grateful to you for writing about your story. I just finished your book and it gave me so much hope for the future. I was diagnosed in early November and am currently at home doing physical and occupational therapy so I can try and return to work next month. Even though I have made great progress, I have been feeling like I was never going to get back to where I was physically. I am now going to make a goal of using a cane by the time I return to work. I am so glad to know that yoga helped you, and that you were able to move on to running and even INTENSITY. I previously ran and did tae kwon do and have been so worried I wouldn’t be able to continue. You have given me hope that if I can get my ankles strong enough and my balance back, I might be able to someday. I look forward to reading your posts so I can remember that it gets better.

      Hi Sheila- I also had the AMAN variant. I am happy to hear you are on the road to recovery. I struggled a lot with fear- not knowing if I would ever get back to where I was before GBS, but I have. And I’m in even better shape than before. Just keep working towards it. With GBS it’s all about time. A lot of time. But you will get there.

        Thank you, Holly. It means a lot to hear it from someone who knows what I’m going through 🙂
