🤔 Why can’t they just agree?! 🤷🏻‍♀️

I’m pretty sure that anyone living with chronic pain/health issues will have heard the phrase “You need to listen to your body.” I know that I’ve heard it more times than I can count, and I suspect that I’m not the only one who has lost count of how many times they’ve heard it over the years. In theory, it sounds simple enough - do what your body tells you to do, when your body tells you to do it - but, in reality, it’s no where near as easy as it seems because trying to get your brain to agree with your body can be quite the challenge. It’s like your brain says “Let’s do this…” or “Let’s do that”, while your body says “There’s no way I’m doing that! I’m way too sore/exhausted to be doing anything.” It’s like trying to referee a debate that only you can hear. Wouldn’t it be great if the two could just get along with each other every once in a while? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤔🤗😂

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! 😂💝
