A "conversion disorder" simply means that a psychological disturbance of any type has converted itself to a physical manifestation of the disturbance. Fear is most often the dominant disturbance. Because the disturbance must make the leap from psychological to physical, conversion disorders aren't terribly common nowadays. Essentially, they're saying something psychologically disrupted these girls so significantly that now, they suffer nervous tics.

That said, my favorite NBC physician-cum-reporter-cum-douche, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, interviewed two of the victims this past Monday morning. Upon suggesting conversion, one of the victims handed her back her Hippocratic *ss as only a 17-year-old girl could, recounting the life she's had to leave behind now that she's had to switch to home schooling because the tics were so incredibly disruptive.

I laid into Sniderman here in a post on the HPV vaccine, written by FreedomKnight, where Snyderman encourages boys to get the HPV vaccine because it correlated to mouth and throat cancer in men (which suspiciously corresponds to a host of other "high-risk behaviors" such as smoking).

This schill tows the line like nobody's business.

She was an ENT. An ear-nose-and-throat doctor. Not an immunologist.

If I were forced by the government to have a vaccination containing thimerosol or any other poison - I would probably suffer from a 'conversion' as well.

As for a 17 year reminding a doctor of their hippocratic oath - that sounds like a very switched on young person. The first line of the oath is - DO NO HARM.

Much Peace...

they are still having symptoms. that show "the doctors" is doing a show on this tomorrow with some of the students and families. The blurb in the commercial says they are looking at it and want top get to the bottom of this.

I was so glad when they did a show about "cyclical vomiting disorder",they are they only show where I have seen this discussed ( mystery diagnosis reinacted a story).

hope they can shed some light on this.
