About Me: Female, 37, Asheville, NC, member since Feb 2011
I'm a math & science middle school teacher who's now disabled due to chronic migraines, seizures, pacemaker issues, vertigo, etc...it all leads to me being homebound. I've seen more drs than I can count, been to Emory, Wake Forest, Duke, and spent a month at the Clevel
[More]and Clinic. Each dr had their own plan/meds for me to try. After a friend suggested I look at Chiari as a reason, I feel like I've found THE reason! It was finding a dr. I've now got a Chiari NS here in the Asheville area, and am on my way/looking forward to a new me!
Just a quick note to say hi! You are welcome. We definitely need to stick together as we go thru this journey. Most of us have no one at home who really understands. If we do they are pretty sick of hearing about it, at least it feels that way to me. I am glad I could help. Let me know if you need anything.
