They genuinely believed themselves paralysed, or dumb, or blind, though often they appeared strangely calm, as if relieved of something, putting themselves passively in the hands of their families and doctors to be cared for. Freud hypothesised that their symptoms had symbolic meaning, and were a subtle communication.
