I read this book when a member of my family got GBS while pregnant.

This book was such a good read when a family member experiences this rare disease, that not many have ever heard of. It helped me emotionally being able to accept the doctors who seemed to have few answers to our questions. It was the best book I read about GBS.

The Darkness Is Not Dark

Suddenly thrust into the unforeseen grip of Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS), Regina Roth candidly writes about her husband's illness. Their faith in Christ shines through the pages of the book lighting the way as they travel through a valley of darkness. The author's words are spiked with love for her husband and gratitude for the creative kindnesses of others. For the professional, patient, family or other caregiver, this book provides a case history of one man's personal encounter with GBS.

Outstanding Book

As someone who suffers from Chronic GBS (CIDP) I highly recommend this book for medical professionals, patients with GBS/CIDP and also their family and friends.

For everyone, this inspirational book is a testament to the love and devotion between a wife and her husband, the comfort and courage found through prayer and faith in God, and the strength that unites friends and family members to help each other through times of need.

Inspiration and Comfort In Times of Trouble

This book is full of humor and heart! In a time of serious illness, when the outcome is unknown, we all tread new ground. This book actually maps that ground in the form of a personal diary. The painful feelings that arise--fear and anguish, helplessness and anger--are here, but along with them are wonderful humor and humility, faith and gratitude. I was drawn into the fast pace of this true story immediately. By the time I had finished I decided to buy it for anyone I know who has to deal with a devastating illness and needs inspiration!
