I don'r have gluten ataxia like Rebecca, but I do have hereitary ataxia. I have had it all my life, and I found out what it is called in 2007. (I am 63 years old. a long time to not know what is wrong.) I have just started using a cane for balance I have good days and bad, but I just handle it. I do yoga and Pilates, and try to eat right. I also (add insult to injury) have depression, so I am used to dealing with both on a daily basis. So, Rebecca, hang in there! You have found a good support group, so you don't think you are alone.
Good words stilldancing!
