Then read the many tremendous stories other patients have shared in VeDA’s Patient Spotlight.
Many of our members share with us the story of their journey with a vestibular disorder. These heartfelt tales take you through the initial discovery of their symptoms – such as dizziness, vertigo and lightheadedness – to their struggle to find a qualified vestibular specialist, and often include the challenges they have had to face at work and at home, including a lack of understanding and compassion by others to whom their symptoms are invisible.
“When I read her story I thought, that’s just what happened to me! And all of a sudden I didn’t feel so alone.”
If you have a vestibular disorder these stories may sound familiar to you. You may read about someone else’s experience with dizziness and feel like they are actually talking about your own situation. Just listening to another person’s story can help you realize that you are not alone, that others have also struggled with vestibular dysfunction and found ways to live a happy and productive life. You may gain insight into your own journey, or learn some helpful hints that you can apply to your own situation. There are many ways that sharing our stories and experiences can be useful and therapeutic.
