A Long Crawl (My Journey Through Guillain-Barré Syndrome)
by Rosemary Gunn
Sometimes Life trips us up. In August 1997, after a terrifying week where every day was worse than the last, I was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. I am a writer, so words are my therapy; they offered me comfort and solace. "A Long Crawl" was my way of trying to make sense of what had happened to me. I am a Guillain-Barre Syndrome survivor.
