What does it feel like to have a Functional Neurological Disorder?
“FND took away “ME”, it changed my life taking away my independence. The hardest part is not being believed by professionals & being made to feel a fraud.” ~Sarah, Berkshire
“The ignorance around this condition often leaves me feeling frustrated and humiliated. It’s changed my life beyond recognition. I’ve said goodbye to my former self, achievements and some friends and now embrace a more measured and positive life that I appreciate more and never take for granted.” ~Kerryn, Northamptonshire
“FND. I miss me” ~Bev, Bromsgrove
“My seizures hold me back from achieving what I want to in life. It’s humiliating when it happens and whenever I ask my doctor to help me it’s frustrating and heartbreaking when I’m told that they can’t do anything.” ~Gemma, West Yorkshire
“It’s the pain that troubles me I have good Drs though” ~Sheena, Fife
