If you get the chance, watch the Rachel Ray show that aired on January 8, 2008. If was very insightful and should give us all food for thought. Watching it made me extra glad that I have DS to go to for support and to celebrate. On the show a woman not only lost her weight after GBS but also her friends and family. She sent emails with pictures, bragging about how she was doing and unfortunately it hurt those friends and family members that were overweight and pushed them and others away. She couldn't understand why everyone wasn't as happy for her as she was. I guess what I learned was that I need to remember that people will see that I have lost weight and I won't need to tell them. The therapist that was on the show said that it is very important that those of us that have had GBS should see a therapist as I think most of us already know. Hope you get a chance to see it. Was a good reminder of what not to do after surgery.
