Hello I am new to this site. I am hoping to find others facing the same illness as I do that can relate to me. I am forty two years old. I am a mother of two nana of five beautiful granbabies and married to a wonderful man that I truly love and he loves me. I have been diagnosed with tis monster called conversion disorder that has changed my life at a blink of a eye. This all started in 05. I was amitted in the hospital in critical care unit doctors thinking I had a stroke. Then they moved me to a stress mood unit floor after test after test came back normal and then they called a family meeting and we was told that I had not had a stroke that I had conversion disorder . That it would be long term recovery at the time we had no idea what we was going to have to face . I was mute for seven months slowly my speech came back I was so happy . I thought it was over with but need less did we know that Our lives was going to be upside down . From being a southern country girl to somebody from a different country. I now sound as if I was from Sweden Russian France, hungry you name it no body thinks I am from my home town Nashville Tenn. Not only has this illness made me sick but it has stolen my identity. It is now 2010 and I still have seizures days where I have trouble walking body jerking twitching, throwing up bad pressure in my head . This is really wearing me out and my family. It is very un settling and heart breaking for people to watch me go through what I have to go through with and the only thing that helps me through is my personal Savoir Jesus Christ and my love ones. I get tired and weary but god gives me strength to fight and not give up .He knows who I am what I am about what I face from day to day and he is the only doctor that I put my trust in. I do go to tbearpy but I am not seeing any miracles yet that doesn't mean that I won't . I have been going to the same one now for going on six years. All though at one time I felt almost normal if there is such a thing anymore. Please if there is someone out here that can put some positive imput that you have seen please share with me. I feel so alone and so afraid that this is going to cost me my marriage please help !!!!!!!!
Thank you all and god bless here is my email address email@example.com look forward to meeting new friends to help one another fight this monster.
