    Hi @jaj1, welcome to our online community :) How are things? I know finding out about a diagnosis can be a, complex time emotionally. You've discovered what's causing the situation you're facing, but it can leave you with more questions about what to do now. 

    I'm afraid I don't know anyone specific in our community who has cerebellum ataxia. I know a few of our members have some form of ataxia. We don't always need to have the exact conditions to help each other out. If you feel up to it maybe you could describe to us how it effects you, and maybe some of our members might have advice or suggestions on how to help with those effects?
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
