For the past 9 months, I have been struggling with FND, or Functional Neurological Disorder - a crisis for neurology. It’s a severely understudied and misunderstood disorder, and Fndhope along with many patients are desperate to try to spread awareness about FND. 

Patients who go through FND often experience severe symptoms, such as seizures, crippling weakness, and severe pain, and can even affect vital functions such as breathing and eating. However, FND cannot be medically explained as of yet, and therefore it is mistreated by many doctors, claiming it is “psychiatric”, “fake”, “all in your head”, etc. There is no specific cure.

Please just take a few minutes to watch and reblog this video. I know it may not fit the theme of your blog- but please. It is very important to me, along with other FND sufferers, to help raise awareness about this disorder.

Thank you!
