    I just read your story and had to email you. On August 4, 2014 I was diagnosed with mild case GBS. It started in my legs and then moved to my arms and hands. I was in the hospital for 2 weeks and was able to go home to my two children and wonderful husband. I am going through OT and PT now and as you know it is very painful. After seeing your video I realized that I am so blessed to have caught GBS at an early stage. All of the test and medication is nothing like what you went through but I feel connected to your story. Thank you for being a strong model for me to look up to. I have some challenges but I am now able to face them with a renewed vision.

    Holly very inspired by your video. I to got GBS, in May 2011. I’m just starting to walk without anything. I still use a wheelchair, 4 prone cane around the house. But I’ve been walking more lately. Outside I use a walker. I know each persons recovery is different, can you share with me, if you still have joint pain, muscle stiffness and any balance issues. It’s going on 4 years for me and I just wanted to know. Also my fingers are still curled and loose but weak.

    God Bless You.
