I started my journey with FND 10 years ago. Although I had obvious signs and symptoms of FND and had seen more than one doctor, none of them thought to send me to see a Neurologist. I was always sent away and told to "Keep an eye on it." My current doctor remains perplexed at this and it was this doctor that opened the door to my diagnosis.
Over these last 10 years, I have gone from a very active life to a wheelchair, but not even a self propelled chair because I am too weak to manage one, I use a powered wheelchair especially when I go out; without it I would be house bound.
Life is very different now to what it used to be. Instead of getting up in the morning with a spring in my step and able to decide what I would like to do, I now drag myself up and decide what I 'think' I can do and take it from there.
Each day brings a choice, a choice of acceptance. When we can accept our limitations and embrace them, we can live with compassion and forgiveness to ourselves, others and life. When we live with compassion and forgiveness, it is easier to find a "Silver Lining" within the clouds of our existence.
I hope you can find your silver lining through self love, compassion and forgiveness.
Blessings - Acceptance
