While most people may not be familiar with the word “vestibular”—-a system in your inner ear that sends signals to your brain to tell you where you are in space—-many of us have likely experienced the awkward, sometimes even scary feeling, when we momentarily lose our balance.
Whether it comes on gradually over time or all of a sudden, bouts of dizziness, vertigo, and nausea can make many of life’s routine tasks virtually intolerable. Everyday life–from getting around your house to grocery shopping–becomes a progressively challenging obstacle course to navigate.
September 19-25, 2021 is Balance Awareness Week, an annual campaign presented by VeDA, the Vestibular Disorders Association, to broaden the awareness and understanding of vestibular conditions.
LIFE REBALANCED CHRONICLES
The highlight of this year’s Balance Awareness Week is the premiere of the Life Rebalanced Chronicles docuseries. Presented over six-episodes, this project features nine incredible vestibular warriors and their inspiring personal journeys, which will resonante with anyone who is navigating a challenge in their life. Each episode focuses on a part of the human experience impacted by living with a chronic illness: body, mind, spirit, relationships, self, and life.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to share these touching videos, which highlight the highs and lows that span the spectrum of the vestibular patient experience.
“When I developed MdDS and vestibular migraine, my life turned upside down and my sense of self dissipated as my career, dreams, friendships and confidence crumbled,” says docuseries filmmaker Kimberly Warner. “Returning to filmmaking and telling stories of those with chronic conditions has helped me rediscover my sense of purpose. Not only have I discovered our shared experiences and found solidarity, but I see how important these messages are for everyone who is navigating a challenge in their life, not just those with chronic illness. This series is about something bigger than a diagnosis; it’s about human perseverance and healing–even when there isn’t always a cure.”
Life Rebalanced Chronicles’ six episodes are available after their premieres (starting weekly on August 17th) at VeDA’s website.
