Based on his personal experiences with BVP, author Arthur Wooten takes a light-hearted approach to chronicling the challenges of living with a disorder that has a major impact on daily life.
The author addresses her journey through over a decade of illness, from searching for a diagnosis, through years of treatment, and finally to rebuilding a life within the confines of what her dizziness will allow. Medical information in the book reviewed for accuracy by vestibular specialists.
A moving personal account of the author’s toxic reaction to the antibiotic Gentamicin and how she learned to function without a working vestibular system.
