Continuing the discussion from About the New Member Introductions category:
I am happy to be here with others like me. My journey with ataxia started over six years ago when I had surgery for a fourth ventricle Brain Tumor. Fortunately, it turned out to be a pilocytic astrocytoma which is a grade one cancer and the residual Tumor in the brain stem has not grown. Unfortunately, I have lots of neurological problems. I can not walk on my own without my walker and I can not see well. I am alwAys dizzy and type at the blazing speed of three wpm. I won’t go on but have lost lots. I also have a wonderful husband who helps me so much and two great adult children. I am lucky to experience no pain and my condition is not getting worse. I keep hoping for a miracle that I will improve, but accept that I can not make the miracle happen.
