My partner was diagnosed with FND around a month ago. He’s has quite severe depression and FND was diagnosed as an onset of this. He’s having quite severe anxiety & panic attacks (we’ve been told getting this under control will alleviate some of his FND symptoms which we’re trying to do).
I’m looking for help & support that may help him firstly both come to terms with the diagnosis and perhaps give how us and him help on how it can be managed. Myself and his family could really do with some tips on how to manage both the depression & FND too so we can help support him properly.
Like quite a few of the posts i’ve seen here, he’s been diagnosed and the discharged to just ‘deal with it himself’, we’ve had no steer on what we need to do or not do, to help him and are kind of navigating this blindly. This is terrifying for him, and us. If anybody can give us any help to understand this a bit better or point us in the right direction of how we can best support him, it would be appreciated. Thank you.
