    FND and all it's crazy symptoms

    So I have a new diagnosis to add to my ever growing list of conditions.
    The newest one is called #FND functional neurological disorder.
    Apparently it's the reason I have #Migraines with visual auras and strange #sensorysymptoms such as the feelings of a electric current running over my skin, water droplets on my skin. The sensations of my feet stood in puddles when they are completely dry. When these happen that can cause me to react with wiping my face constantly or scratching which makes me feel awkward. #cognitive problems such as stumbling over my words, saying the wrong words and putting a completely different word in its place and if I try to correct myself I get flustered and make things worse. These are but just a few of my symptoms that I deal with.
    Add these to my already large list of complaints
    Heds, osteoarthritis, hypertension, ibs and other horrible gastrointestinal disorders, chronic pain and fatigue .
    I'm 46 in 8 days and most of the time I feel closer to 66.
    I get told to exercise more. I used to go running/walking most days for anything up to 13 miles . I would do kick boxing and go to the gym. It didnt help the conditions or pain levels then it wont help now. Except now I'm to bloody exhausted to do much more then work an run a house .
    Tell me there is hope for us that suffer daily. Because I'm beginning to run out of fake smiles to wear.



    What am I doing wrong?

    I really want to find support and/or help here, but I cannot figure out how to do so? Can someone please help? #TraumaticBrainInjury #confused #alone #cognitive -overload #exhausted

    Do you ever wish you could go back in time?

    Does anyone ever obsess over "if only I had done differently" or "i wish I could go back redo?" Any tips for re- routing these thoughts or moving past them? It is so so hard for me to move on and I tend to get caught in a loop of thinking about the past, regrets, and things that I miss but can't get back. I try to distract myself but it is a real struggle. I hate feeling like I messed up and could have done differently and maybe I'd be happier if I did something different. Idk. Trying to find ways to move past... #Anxiety #Depression #MentalHealth #cognitive

    Cognitive overload ##cognitive overload

    My brain is really struggling with all the information that I have had to process I am having surgery on October 11 I was in the admissions process for three Guide dog schools now I have to push all these plans on hold. Plus working and getting ready to go to rehab after surgery. 😑 ugh I am really tired.


    Does anyone feel like they're just not understood by others? #Bipolar #TBI #ADD #cognitive disorder #Depression

    It often seems others don't understand me. I become frustrated, often angry trying to explain myself to family & friends. It seems like I'm talking a different language. I find it difficult to find the correct wording to describe my thoughts &/or feelings. Any suggestions please? Hugs
