What does it feel like to have a Functional Neurological Disorder?
“Hard to understand and feel people don’t believe what you say. It’s like playing a game but have no idea how to play it.” ~Jo, Cambridge
“FND is a thief, it has stolen my life and my time. The endless hours spent recovering from something as small as a doctors appointment. My bed is my home. Recovering is my dream. Support is my hope.” ~Anon, West Sussex
“FND has forced me to stop my sport after being a full time athlete but it hasn’t forced me to give up and I never will.” ~Georgia, Buckinghamshire
“I feel unsafe and alone because people tell me I should be ok, even though I am at risk all the time.” ~Dylan, Devon
“Being diagnosed with FND was the biggest shock of my life but the worst was people branding me a liar and a fake! You were fine last week and now you’re in a wheelchair! People’s ignorance is what isolates the disabled not the disability!” ~Vicky, Wirral
