Together we shared our experiences and journey of having FND and that challenges and positives of having this illness in our lives.
What I felt was so helpful in this video is how Georgina and ! show just how different FND can affect two people despite having similar symptoms. For example both of us have non-epileptic seizures as part of our FND but our non-epileptic seizures couldn't be any different. Mine present as a more 'classic type' seizure whereas Georgina's non-epileptic seizures are more dissociative.
As FND affects the whole brain is can result in a wide range of symptoms as Georgina and I share. We also chat about getting our diagnosis and the different support and treatment's we've had as well as the general fluctuations of the illness both day-today and year-to-year. Georgina and I also share that challenges of having FND especially when it comes to how often our illness is misunderstood.
