My 11 year old daughter has been diagnosed with conversion disorder, she was diagnosed in July 2008. She had many
of the symptoms of conversion disorder, the not walking, not eating, not
socializing, etc. The biggest symptom that she had and this symptom is the only
she still has is blindness. All her other symptoms went away by September 2008,
all of them except the vision loss. She did not have any traumatic happen at
this time, well she was having a tough time at her summer camp and we went to
the beach to spend the week with my in-laws. She had gotten ill, and my mother
in law and I had gotten into a arguement and just a couple hours later the
symptoms began. We had a long summer in and out of the hospital with
psychosomatic seizures and the other symptoms mentioned above. I was told that
we "loved her to much" and I did not allow her to have any feelings other than
being happy, so she supressed all her negative feelings and they are manifested
in her symptoms. She saw a therapist for quite a long time, then we started
seeing a hypnosis doctor a hour and half away once a week for 9 months. There was not much progess, so we stopped going. Not sure what else to do. Some people have suggested EFT.... I can not seem to find anyone on the internet who was diagnosed with conversion disorder who is blind. I have no idea how long this will last or if it will last forever! Anyone have any suggestions? Thank!
