I am Nadine Boesten and I am 20 years old. I live in the beautiful city of Maastricht in the very south of the Netherlands. I am studying European studies at Maastricht university. Furthermore I work at a supermarket in the weekend. Things I love to do are traveling, writing, dancing and drawing. Sounds like a lovely life doesn’t it? Well, I can tell you it is. But sometimes life just surprises you whether in a positive or negative way. Like it did for me 3 years ago. It was a normal day in my junior year of high school when suddenly I didn’t feel so well. I started shaking and lost my consciousness. After 1 year and a long road of seeing neurologists and going to clinics I finally was diagnosed with PNES (psychogenic non-epileptic seizures). After 3 years of living with the ‘tag’ ‘PNES patient’ I am getting better in turning in this ‘negative’ into ‘positive’. The purpose of this blog is to share my personal experiences, tips and tricks and my journey of finding the best way in how to deal with PNES. Because I am so much more than a PNES patient.
