How Ménière’s disease changed my life.

It all began 8 years ago. I owned and ran a very successful Multi-aged Daycare/Pre-school program. I was on top of the world. I loved my work and thought I was making a real difference in children and their families lives. The new ECE students would come in and were always amazed about my philosophy and how I ran my center.

So it started the clogged ears and feeling unwell. So the testing started. A year and a half later with a few scary vertigo attacks I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. As this condition progressed the vertigo was so violent I would be debilitated/paralyzed for hours and days. I hired full time help, searched for cures then finally folding my buisiness 3 years ago.  It was the worst day of my life. The light in this tunnel is Leila’s Journey. I couldn’t have made this happen if Meniere’s didn’t come into my life. Seems ironic.

  1. I love your book and website! I was a kindergarten teacher and head start teacher. I had to quit working September of 2013. My meniere’s was getting so bad, I had two gentamicin injections, I had a severe reaction, I ended up in the emergency room, they admitted me. I was there a week then I spent 32 days in a nursing home. I lost all my balance, I couldn’t even get up out of a chair, I had severe vertigo, vomiting, headache, sweating. I did learn to walk again, now I can walk with a cane. I miss my teaching, I loved it, I am a book lover. I’ve often thought of writing, maybe someday. Congratulations on your success!

    1. Letting go of something you love is very hard. As Leila learned in my story, letting go can just be part of the Journey. Having a safe place to land can help you move forward in our own lifes Journey. Unless you can tell the future, you never really know what’s next.
