Conversion disorder

Postby GiLLy » Wed Jan 21, 2004 12:40 pm

Hello

I am diagnosed as conversion disorder, Had it for 3 years now. this is the first spport I have found. I feel it would be benificial to share coping methords and talk abot what happens. I do not know anyone else with the same diagnosis. Hope those of you who are suffering the same or similar conditions will respond. I fel that knowing more about it and more ways of coping coild be a way to self healing, Unsure, but worth a try :)

sorry - unspellchecked :)

Hi replying to your letter regarding your sister. I take Efexor which is a antidepressent and tylex and diazepam to control pain and muscle spasms. The biggest problem i have is controlling my pseudoseizures which severeley affects my quality of life, there is no medication to control these as they are not epileptic seizures.

I am waiting to see a phsycotherapist , the doctor reckons this will help.

I would be interested to no your sisters symptons and how she deals with them.

If you or your sister would like to e.mail me i would like to hear from you has i would be really interested in being in contact with somebody else with this illness.

Coping with Conversion Disorder

Postby GiLLy » Wed Apr 21, 2004 10:43 am

Hi..

In reply to coping with conversion disorder.

I cope with my diagnosed conversion order by trying to understand how it effects me and what causes it, by keeping myself walking as much as I can and practicing having less stress.....

I pace myself and try to do what I would do if I had nothing wrong.. At times it is very frustrating as I can do things but not for long, or it takes me forever to do something that would have taken me a short time to do. or i just cannot do it..argh!!! :) It's not easy but having more value of life by trying and acheiving things does help me.

I also tell people what I have wrong with me. they do not understand at first but over time, recognising how I get and when and why, it is seen and accept that whatever it is happens. I do not make it happen..

In the future who knows if I will be on medication for it, I hope not.

Anyway.. this is how I cope.. :)

Hello Maggie, I also have had "conversion disorder" for two years.
I am so pleased to have found someone with the same problem, as it has been so hard not having anyone who understands the difficulties.

I have had "conversion disorder" for two years now. This is the first support that I also have found. I also wish to know more about it. My way of coping is to take each day at a time. I do what I can, and try not to get to upset about what I'm unable to do. I certainly can do much more for myself than twelve months ago. I am not on any medication. Daily I do excercises, and I find that soaking in the bath helps a great deal. Keeping my mind active also. :)
