I want to share what I learned in over a decade of diagnosis, treatment and acceptance. It is the one small thing I can do to shine a light on our illness. I hope you find this book to be personally valuable.

"If one of life’s major challenges is to know ourselves then there is a rich source of self knowledge through illness and healing. My own healing slowed me down so I could see things I would have missed at my previous pace. I experienced healing as miraculous. That we are given the gift of physical bodies with the capacity to heal; that we have the gift of intelligence to understand the workings of our bodies; that we have the benefit of others who dedicate themselves to healing, all these things were wondrous.
Whatever the future holds, I am grateful for the journey."
Finding Balance gives readers detailed insights into the physical and emotional toll of a health problem that is largely unrecognized and difficult to diagnose. The book addresses a decade of illness; from the initial two years of attempting to find a diagnosis through years of treatment and finally, the rebuilding of a life within the limits of what dizziness and vertigo will allow.
“This book should be read by anyone affected by vestibular dysfunction: patients, family members, friends and healthcare providers.”
We Are Not Alone
Over 10 million adults in the United States have chronic problems with dizziness and imbalance – vestibular problems. This compares to 400,000 with multiple sclerosis or 1.5 million with autism, both chronic illnesses with much greater name recognition.
