functional weakness is a bit hard to explain to people. It resembles a stroke. but there is no damage to the brain. it is the nervous system that is just not working correctly. It was explained to me in the following way: think of your brain like a computer, its not a hardware problem just the software!
With me it is the right side of my brain (nervous system) that is not working correctly. which means that it is my left side of my body that is effected. my face droops and my arm and leg go weak. i have trouble talking at times, and moving around is hard if my left side does not move. my left eye also closes where i cant open it at will.
It is not that well known around the world and this means that support groups are very rare. this is why i set up the blog so others can get in touch or just read over it. I am constantly trying new methods to try and control my functional weakness. all the help i can get would very much appreciated.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!!
