I'm new here as I have been diagnosed today with FND. if I'm being honest, I don't really know what to think. I don't feel like anything was really explained to me, just that they will be changing my medication. I have been off work for 2 months (I work in a school with SEN kids) and am really worried about how work can put things into place so I can continue with my job. if anyone has been in a similar position please get in touch. also if someone could put things into lamen's terms that would be great.

thank you

Hi Shirleysgirl2016,

I found

to be helpful in describing FND.

Wishing you the best on your journey and hoping you are able to find the support you need to manage. Do you have access to Occupational Therapy support, to provide advice around possible strategies/modifications for your current role or roles that may be more suited?



FND is an umbrella term meaning 'our brain is sending and receiving faulty information' a bit like a computer with a virus. It is totally involuntary and all of the symptoms you have are Real! Do not feel guilty it is not your fault. Do read up as much as you can from reliable sources and take things slowly. It took me a long time to accept I have FND, so be kind to yourself.

Good Luck
