  1. […] Balance Awareness Week […]

    • My name is Sharon and I live in Star Idaho. The vestibular nerve in my right ear is 100% non functional. I have been living with this for 9 months now. I have come a long way since then and am trying to settle in to this being a life time balance problem. I am 72 years old and did not see the rest of my life this way. I go to physical therapy now and have two more visits. My brain and my eyes have compensated for the nerve somewhat. I have learned a lot about the job of tracking with my eyes and am fascinated with the connection of eyes and balance. My daughter told me about this sight on the internet and that is how I found you. I don’t see a ton of current activity. I thought there would be more comments from people but maybe this isn’t the place to look. I find it very interesting that there are enough people with this problem that a group has been formed here. To all of you that read this and have this problem I sympathize with you and understand all you endure on a daily basis. Be strong and roll with each day. Fondly Sharon
