Diagnosed with bilateral vestibulopathy with oscillopsia, this is the same illness that Angie Styles, the lead character in Dizzy, develops. All symptoms, causes, diagnoses, treatments, and time lines mentioned are true.My hope with this book is not only to entertain but also educate- bring awareness to this disease that affects hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. And if just one person suffering from these same symptoms reads Dizzy and realizes they are not alone, then my job is done.With much gratitude I thank Dr. Neera Kapoor, Dr. Sujana S. Chandrasekhar, and James Gurley, my physical therapist. Each one of you helped to save my life and then taught me how to survive in my new one.“Dizzy is an entertaining and realistic portrayal of the unique challenges faced by people suffering from inner ear balancedisorders.
