Friend with Guillain-Barre Syndrome
I wanted to make a post to share an incredible story of a friend of mine. He currently suffers from Guillain-Barre Syndrome which if you're not familiar, is a rare disease that causes rapid-onset limb weakness and paralysis. It affects the peripheral nervous system. I'm sure Nurse can chime in with corrections or additional info if needed Smile . Anyways my friend was hit with this disease about a year ago and spent 10 months bound to a hospital bed, paralyzed. During his hospital stay he was making little recovery progress so he decided to leave and go home. Once he got home and with the help of many professionals started working on recovery. Since comings home he is now able to stand, walk a few steps, dress and bathe himself, and use a fork and pen. He is slowly but surely getting better and is a great fighter of this disease.


Local news site where he is from posted an article online about him.

It must have taken a colossal amount of determination from him and his therapists to get so far. All the best to your friend.
