According to stories, it all started last April, she had been feeling headaches, and recurring headaches the following months. The husband said she had been attacked by head-splitting headaches that she could not sleep, area around her eyes were already very dark. According to him, of the 24 hours, she only had 2 hours of sleep. And that was her daily routine.
In two weeks time, her pains and sleepless nights plunged. She became blind partially, then totally. The doctors could not decipher the cause of all these pains and agonies she's felt. The tests, MRI, CT-scan and other lab results showed negative.
The headaches were followed by a slow paralysis, until half her body was paralyzed and she was diagnosed with a cyst on the head. They were told to prepare 400k, soon they were ready, but the doctors would not operate on her because of something different about her tests. It took the doctors long to tell the family she had Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the peripheral nerves or the peripheral nervous system. This is likened to a short circuit, but happens on the nerves. It is a rare case to which rates 1 out of 100, 000 people. It can attack any gender, of any age. The immune system of the body attacks itself. And it happens fast because of the nerves being attacked. No specific symptoms, no sure as well.
I just heard of this syndrome, and felt fear because of my recurring headaches too. Migraine it may be, but I realized life is too short to waste away. I may live today but I could not be sure of what happens the next day, or any minute now.
Life is really short, but if you are prepared, then maybe life could be lived to your advantage, and to your fulfillment as well. Live today's life as if it were your last. This I was reminded.
Rest in Peace, Zeny.
