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
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.
