Imagine going from near perfect health, talking, walking, working, and living your best life, to completely paralyzed and fighting for your life within days.
In this episode, Mallory Bishop shares her experience with an upper respiratory infection gone wrong, with symptoms that progressed so quickly she found herself completely paralyzed from the neck down only days later.
The diagnosis was Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder where your immune system attacks your nervous system. In Mallory’s case, it stripped her peripheral nervous system and left her almost completely paralyzed for months.
This story blew my mind. This conversation is a perfect example of why I never want to know too much about my guest’s story before hearing it in full. You’ll hear my surprise and disbelief while experiencing your own as Mal shares her experience.
