CD lead to a horrible speech disorder. Need informations

Postby conversiongirl » Sat Mar 26, 2016 11:31 am

Hi,

Since the age of 17 I suffer from a slurred speech who got worse and worse since then but I just found out the cause yesterday!

For years I went to see all kind of doctors and I had speech therapies until I just decided to give up because everyone seemed to think I was just faking it.
I am 29 now and recently I have experienced a very hard time... I lost my bf, my job and all my friends. So yesterday I went to see a psychiatrist looking for help and instead of talking about my problems, he wanted to know why I had a speech disorder. I told him the story and he said that I have a conversion disorder.

Since yesterday I am completely overwhelmed and I can't believe that during all this time no one was able to tell me the reasons of my problem. I feel like all the failures of my life are a direct consequence of my speech disorder and I feel very angry when I think that, according to the psychiatrist, I could possibly recover and find back a normal life.
I don't know if I should believe him. People can barely understand me now, I can't believe the idea that soon I could start having a normal life again!
I would like to hear about other people in my case because I think that there are not many informations about CD on the internet. Even doctors doesn't seem very aware about this disease.

I feel like people with CD are completely ignored at every level.
I would like to know more about this disease, hear testimonials from people who managed to heal or not, hear about specialists who really are interested in CD.
I am even ready to take part in a case study if it can improve the research and the informations about this disease that no one seems to care of.

Thanks.
