February Vestibular Support Group Coming Soon!

Just a heads up, the next Vestibular Support Group will be taking place in February. Details will be announced soon!

Vestibular Support Group: Success!

This past Saturday we held our 4th Vestibular Support Group and what a success it was! Dr. Julia Rahn came and spoke about the psychological challenges of living with a vestibular disorder/chronic illness. Although we had a smaller group than usual, the group was fantastic. While the support group does provide a group speaker, it is a very laid back atmosphere and everyone was free to share their story, their concerns and daily challenges. Although initially we had some timid members, after hearing others share their vestibular story, everyone opened up and even stayed after to swap phone numbers and email addresses.

We hope that you will consider joining us for the next vestibular support group. For more info: info@balancechicago.com

Vestibular Disorders on Facebook

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for other individuals who are dealing with problems similar with yours. This is one reason why we at LifeStyle started a Vestibular Support Group and why I post topics that send you away from my blog and to forums!

While perusing facebook today, I found the group page for the Vestibular Disorders Association, which is a very reliable site for information about vestibular disorders. On this facebook page, there are over 500 members, most with a balance disorder similar to yours.
