    Hi @Kay8xo

    Welcome aboard. 

    I'm married, have two sons, 13 and 19, and eldest goes off to University himself this coming weekend. ? 

    I became poorly suddenly overnight with sickness, severe vertigo , anxiety and now depression issues and bilateral progressive hearing losses, and hearing aids in February of 2017. 

    Finally my diagnosis is in ( a week ago) Menieres Disease, and vestibular Neuritis,  which we all knew already, these past 19 months of vestibular and Neurology.

    I gave a fabulous husband and sons, friends and support locally via Hearing loss and mental health charities. 

    Counselling is helping a lot, and on anti depressants meds to keep upright.,moreso and coping on some level. I just get so physically and mentally exhausted though.  

    Everyone on here is wonderful, and so informative. XX 

    Looking forward to chatting.
