Kate has kindly shared her story with us.
Many of us ask about Gentamicin.
This six minute video is well told as to why Kate chose the gentamicin path.
Jenny is 54 years old and had her first vertigo attack at the age of 20.
At that time there was no internet nor available information so she had no idea what to do. However, Jenny never tired of finding out why this was happening to her.
She had connected with a journalist who wrote her story and as a result of her story she was contacted by people with the same symptoms. It was then that she realised she was not alone.
You will learn a lot from Jenny who I am happy to say no longer has vertigo episodes.
In Junran's video he said: "There is something beautiful in the solidarity among a group of people going through the same ordeal"
In Esther's video she said:
"I am hoping my journey will give you some guidance throughout your journey"
My story is about managing my anxiety, Gentamicin and living a healthy active lifestyle

Her sequel to “The Colour of Broken” will be released in 2021(FYI the screen froze in some parts (this is common problem with webinars) and there was minor technical problem before the second power point presentation. This does not take anything away from Julieann’s presentation.) You can view this webinar on the link below
