I am almost 65 and I have FND, and it’s hard just writing that down and looking at it.
I am a strong person with many many of years of pain behind me from intense migraines, IBS, PMT, back pain and pains in my skull. I have never given in…then I developed FND.
I hate how this affects my husband and my daughters, I no longer see my mum who lives just a couple of miles away as this condition scares her. What upsets me most is the only help offered is CBT. As I have had my share of trauma like everybody, it’s assumed that it is the cause. I do not believe it, so am not helped like many another FND fighter, but I refuse to believe that I am less than or weak or useless.
I am LOVED and cherished and WORTH IT damn it, I just need the medical profession to agree.
