✅FND Bingo✅

FND Bingo is more than just a game or “a bit of fun” – it helps to raise awareness of #FunctionalNeurologicalDisorder and also helps to demonstrate how this debilitating condition differs from one person to the next!
This ‘FND Bingo Card’ – created by the fantastic’functionallyjess’ of Instagram – has meant that thousands of people from across the globe have been able to share their ‘Bingo Cards’ of symptoms.
Here is a blank ‘FND Bingo Card’ for anyone who is interested in joining in both playing FND Bingo and also raising #FNDAwareness .
To play:
* Save the ‘Bingo Card’ where you can edit the picture (for example your photos on your phone).
* Edit the picture by adding a tick, a line, anything to highlight the symptom(s) you have.
* Post your completed ‘FND Bingo Card’ to your social media accounts.

🩻 I’m back! 🩻

Sorry, I’ve been a bit absent recently! I hope you didn’t think I’d forgotten about you all? You’ll be glad to hear that my chiropractor fixed me so now I’m back (pun intended 🩻🤗🤣)!! My body may be held together by Kinesiology Tape but it helps when you can have some fun with it! 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 I’d be lost, in agony, and falling apart, without my amazing chiropractor!!

The Short Answer! 😂

I think I’ve found the answer I’m going to give the next time someone asks me “What’s wrong with you?” This answer is so much shorter, and easier to understand, than trying to explain what FND (Function Neurological Disorder) actually is, especially since so few people have actually heard of it. What’s that saying? “If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.”? Well, I have had my fair share of crying, now it’s time to laugh again! 😂💝

💅 Pretty Little Things 💅

I have always loved having pretty looking nails, it always makes me feel better. I used to bite my nails as a kid and my mum tried everything to get me to stop but nothing worked. Then she decided to paint my nails one day and they looked so pretty that it didn’t want to mess them up so I didn’t bite at my nails. Such a simple solution to what is a tricky habit to break. Since then I have always liked getting my nails done, but 4 years ago FND robbed my of the ability to go to a nail salon and have my nails painted and designed. So, since I don’t use nail extensions, I decided to take things into my own hands… literally, and started trying out different designs on my nails. It worked rather well because I had pretty nails again and it also gave me a way to still be creative and artistic too. It might take me a while to do my nails because of my health but I still get there in the end and that gives me a sense of accomplishment. These are some of my favourite creations that I’ve done and I’m sure I will have more along the way. It might seem like a small thing but it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. 💅😍🥳

Grateful to discover The Mighty!

It’s hard to believe that it has been just over a year since I first discovered The Mighty. My life was turned upside down when I was hit, over night, with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND). Overnight I went from being an active, out-going, confident woman who adored her job; to being a person that I barely even knew. I lost my mobility, my independence, my job, my friends and I didn’t know why - it took over 2 years of being passed from pillar to post, having test after test after test, before I finally got a confirmed diagnosis. That seemed to make things even worse because, not only did I not know why my life had been turned upside down, I couldn’t give anyone else an explanation either. I couldn’t help but feel that nobody really believed me and that, somehow, I owed people a reason that I couldn’t give them. It ended up causing me to start battling with depression, anxiety and I felt so lost for so long that I forgot who I really was.
At the start of 2020, I made a New Year’s Resolution to create a ‘Gratitude Jar’ and fill it with little notes, which I call ‘Gratitudes’, that I write throughout the year of things that make me feel thankful and one of the things that I was thankful for last year was discovering The Mighty. When I first joined The Mighty, I was amazed that I had actually found a whole community of people who understood me, who knew what it is like to live with a disability, and other issues, and best of all, I discovered people who had not only heard of FND, but who were actually living with it too. The Mighty community helped me start to find myself a gain and I am so thankful to The Mighty, and all the other Mighties out there, for welcoming me with open arms and for helping me in more ways than I could even say. You are all awesome!👏🏻😘💝
