Intended to inform and express, this is my visual and audible depiction of what what my experience with Guillain Barre Syndrome was like. It’s taken 2 years before I was ready to make this film, but finally the time came. I’m back to full health, surprisingly unscathed, my vigour for work and life has doubled. Although a terrible experience, one that has changed me for the better.
I went from an active, fit person, boxing 4 times a week, to paralysed within the space of 9 days. It took 5 weeks to be able to walk again. I had the added issue of Bells Palsy too, which has left the right side of my face with only about 30% movement.
