    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My primary care saw me on Wed last week after the hospital stay. He had all the records of all the tests. Was like an inch thick of papers. He went through every last one with me and explained how they ruled out a stroke and a seizure which left with the Conversion Disorder. So I accepted that, as best as I could.

    DH and both kids over the weekend told me I am confused more than usual. It's taking me longer to process what they've said. I've really got to think about it before I respond. I keep misplacing things and most times, they're right in front of me and I'm up looking all over the place for them. Usually they are items that I always put in the same place every time I come in the house. I'm mixing up words horribly when I speak. My equilibrium is still way off. And of course, the right eye is still being impacted by...what I am questioning now as Conversion Disorder. I was told it impacts right brain function which is where all the issues I am having are controlled.

    I'm scared. What if this never improves?

    I'm so sorry. Did you have a chance to discuss these concerns with your pcp or your pdoc? Maybe they can give you more insight as to when it will be better?

    Cling to your support system as much as you can right now and try to be honest about how you are feeling and what you are experiencing. Being open and honest with my husband and my tdoc usually helps to relieve some of my fears. I hope things get better for you very soon.

    Hugs,
    Sarah
