Excited....Found a Support Group for Dizzy People

Hi Everyone,

I'm excited as I found a support group for people with dizzy disorders. I contacted the organizer via email and she got back to me today. I told her about my problems. She said she has people who come to the group for all kinds of causes of their dizziness. She said there have been others like me who have suffered damage from an antibiotic. She mentioned that is was damage to the 8th cranial nerve. (Although if it were the 8th nerve, why did I never get Bells Palsy.)

They meet the 2nd Wednesday of every other month and some members meet more frequently. The other interesting news is they sometimes bring in specialist (doctors) from all over to talk about causes, rehabilitation, coping strategies, etc.

I'm so excited to go. The first meeting is on the 12th but it is my 15th wedding anniversary so I'm torn as to weather or not I should go this month or wait until next month, but with my luck I'll probably have a virus by then now that my son is starting school next week (sigh).

Anyway, if I learn anything new, I'll post. Maybe I'll meet others who have recovered 100%.

Pitty....I haven't had anything make me this excited in almost 3 years. I can't wait to meet others face to face just like me.

Gloria
