FND Awareness Day UK – 25th March 2020 | Kirsty’s Story

I was diagnosed in 2017 after months of tests and hospital stays after developing paralysis in my right leg and I began to have seizures. After what felt like forever I was diagnosed with FND.

With a mixture of treatments and support from family and friends I didn’t let FND define me and I graduate as a teacher in 2018 and I am now in my second qualified year!

Along with neurogenic bladder and a Suprapubic catheter and susceptibility to infection, FND can be difficult to manage but I won’t let it beat me!

FND is part of me but I won’t ever let it define me.
