Product description...

Overcoming Guillain-Barre

On June 13, 2008, Rachel at the age of 67, came down with a rare autoimmune disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome that affects the nervous system and if not diagnosed early, usually results in totally paralyzing its victims. This usually occurs very unexpectedly and disrupts a person’s life without warning. She encountered various experiences in the two hospitals and convalescent home she was placed in. Some were devastating and some were uplifting. Her story takes you into a world where only those that have been completely paralyzed and helpless ever experience. She writes step by step on how she was able to cope with each phase of her rare and terrifying illness. Like many others who have suffered challenging disruptions in their life, she was able to gain new insights and forced to reach out to a Greater Power for help. Surprising, what could have been a very depressing time in her life, turned out to be a time of real spiritual growth, discovery of new interests, and self confidence. The realization that we are truly never all alone and the power of an individual’s spirit to never give up, should be inspirational to all.
