I will be celebrating my fifth year of being house/bedbound in November and I am really worried how bad I will get. I feel I am very fragile right now and anything could make me tip over. I remember someone saying that if you don't recover within 3 years of the illness, you will never recover. I hope they were wrong. My GP also believes that I will not make it back to the way I was. If you say that the worse is to come, I wonder how I will be able to survive and endure more of this. This is why sharing your story is so crucial for people like me. It is one of hope and new possibilities!
