From Developer to Paralytic and Back Again

This is a bit of a different post, but I wanted to share my experience with a rare neurological condition known as Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) in case it might be helpful to anyone.

Specifically, I want to focus on my long road to recovery, transitioning out of the workforce and then back into it, and adapting to the new reality. Not all disruptions to work life are medical, and hopefully my story is helpful to others who must leave the workforce due to pregnancy, family issues, mental health, or any other number of factors.
