Hi. My Mam has been diagoosed with functional and dissociative neurological dissorders. She has Epilepsy, fibromyalgia and mild osteoporosis also. She is quite afraid of this FND. She gets stroke like symptoms, such as slurred speech, shakes/jerking like movements, her ankles turn in and she can't walk, she gets very dizzy and because of this her body has gone into seizures also. She's afraid to go outside incase she falls, and because she is embarrassed. She finds it very hard not to focus on this illness. And can feel it "coming on" and she's terrified of it. She can't distract herself, and she has become quite negative and depressed. She is waiting to see a psychiatrist and physiotherapist, but if you, like me are in Ireland, you'll know the wait for these appointments can take A VERY long time! Could anyone give me any tips or tricks to try get her out of bed and doing little things and taking little steps? Her sleep pattern is also messed up because of this. Thanks in advance!
