So my FND story started when I was 16.
I had multiple seizures a day, and I always needed an ambulance out because I would hit my head. Then one day I had stroke like symptoms. As I lost all my ability to move and talk the ambulance crew thought it was to do with my VP shunt because I have hydrocephalus, but nothing was found.
Along time after that I have locking limbs and my seizures got worse. I was fighting with one neurologist person to believe me and finally I found one that explained to me it was FND.
I finally started my journey to recovery, and I am now 6 months seizure free and I feel great. Now I’m in my second year at college doing level 2 diploma in health and social care, and I’m also engaged to my beautiful fiancé.
