    I was diagnosed with GBS in 1993. There was very little known about it then. I was fortunate to make a full recovery. I am reading your book now and am amazed at what you went thru and your bravery and your recovery. So happy for you and proud of you.

    Hi, my name is Michelle, my best fiend, Justine, is in the ICU with a diagnosis of Milller-Fisher Syndrome, which only one in a million people get. She cant open her eyes or control her facial movements, she can still move her arms and toes a little bit, so it’s very hard to communicate with her. She is aware of everything that is going on, so it’s almost like she is trapped in her own body, she had a trach and feeding tube surgically put in about 5 days ago and is on her second round of IVIG but the disease is still progressing. My questions for you are, was there anything that was done for you that helped keep your spirits up, and is there any advice that you could give us for helping her through this tough time? Justine and I have been best friends since we were 13, and we’ve always known how to help eachother through rough times, but I am at a loss right now and it’s killing me!

    My physiotherapist Danielle told me about your video when I was at the Ottawa Rehabilitation Centre yesterday. I must have watched it three or four times last night. I was diagnosed with GBS in July but it took three visits to Emergency before my diagnosis. I am not sure whether my reply is being posted publicly and if it is, wondered whether you could send me an e-mail address. I have a few questions to ask you about your recovery. Thanks so much, Sylvia
