Locked inside my own body

Rachael fell ill in the first term of her first year at Liverpool University with the very rare Guillain-Barre Syndrome. The condition, which effects the nerves system, is developed by only two in every 100,000 people every year.

However, poor Rachel was in hospital for 135 days at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, battling the disease. Her mum thought she was going to die.

Initially she didn't think it was serious and believed she'd be back on her feet within a week but as the paralysis set in and she had a seizure, her morale plummeted and she wondered if she'd ever recover.

She spoke to GMB about her recovery and how her ordeal had shaped her plans for the future.

Perhaps you allowed them a sip knowing they'd hate it? Get in touch!
