Progress!

Things seem to be finally clicking with me. Now that I'm treating both my vision problems directly and doing the vestibular rehab, I'm seeing my dizziness decrease more and more. This is the first time since a year ago that I'm having slow and consistent progress and I know I'm on the right track.

I was at the shore this weekend and my husband has been having anxiety with driving so I decided to drive there and back, not too long a drive, about 40 minutes. I was exhausted on the way home after partying a little too much last night and not sleeping enough. My dizzies stayed the same , but my eyes definitely had trouble keeping up. I think this a great shift from increased dizzies to just eye probs!

Re: Progress!

You are the best! You kept plugging, did not give up. Questioned, and made your progress.

Honestly, bravo.

I'm doing vision therapy with an optometrist. It doesn't address the vestibular vision issues, that I'm doing on my own, but I'm strengthening my eyes which have been weak and not functioning right my whole life. Assuming your vision was intact before all this, keep up with VRTs and your eyes will catch up! I just had another thing blocking my recovery.

I think that last terrible doctor's appointment was the turning point for me to 100% trust my own analysis of my recovery and not continue to look for answers out there.
