Finding Balance: Healing from a Decade of Vestibular Disorders by Sue Hickey
Finding Balance: Healing from a Decade of Vestibular Disorders

PDXplanner, April 7, 2011

When you are sitting in bed holding your head in your hands in a futile attempt to keep the room from spinning, it is enormously comforting to read about someone who has been through what you are going through. It is reassuring to know you are not crazy, with an illness not visible to others, you are not alone and importantly, that someone else has found a path through the illness. Finding Balance Healing from a Decade of Vestibular Disorders by Sue Hickey was obviously written by a “master” patient. The author’s years of clearly and critically observed experience provide enormous value to other vestibular patients and their close friends and family. I think as well it will provide healthcare professionals an understanding they may not have of their patients’ daily struggles. Chapters end with a series of valuable practical tips and insights that serve to coach and support you through each step of the journey of healing from vestibular disorders, and rebuilding a life within the limits of what dizziness, vertigo and the other symptoms allow. So it is not only a uniquely valuable book about finding balance in a malfunctioning vestibular system, but in the end it is an eloquent story about finding balance in life itself. This is a very good book, both moving and useful. It will become a classic in the field.
