Has your GBS/CIDP journey changed your life in any way?

These experiences and the residual symptoms have left an indelible mark on me. I think I am stronger, for only those who have been there know how hard you have to fight. How 17 years later each day can set you challenges you must overcome if you want to stay in charge of your destiny. I don't take things for granted, I count my blessings daily and I try to be a compassionate person. I don't always succeed, but I do the best I can.

What inspires you each day?

  • Anyone who tries
  • People who don't give up
  • Whomever does their best
  • Everyone who follows their dreams
  • All who persevere
  • Those who give to others

In other words, our GBS Association!!!

I’ll finish the story by saying today I am happily married with a very supportive husband, wonderful wider family, fantastic friends and understanding employer. I am a very lucky and very thankful lady.
