Hi there all,
My name is Alex and i am 28 years old. I was diagnosed with conversion disorder 5 years ago.
I have had the illness for 7.5 years in total.
I was so happy to find a site that actually covers this illness, it is nice to know that there are other people out there being ignored by the health service !!!!!!!!
I wish the professionals would take this illness seriously instead of deeming a sufferer as a hypochondriac, or as one doctor referred to me as an ATTENTION SEEKER -( he basically told me to go away, grow up and stop throwing my dummy out of the pram ).
I would not wish this or any other illness on anybody, but sometimes i wish these doctors could live my life for just a day and see what they think after that. :)
