    Great job..... I post rarely, but read often in the past 7 years of my disease.. The last two paragraphs should be printed and kept with the Meniere's patient so that they constantly remind themselves tat during attacks that "It won't change you, just let it pass".. I want to thank all of you loyal and respectful posters that have shared your support all these years.. It took me till just recently to do what Ray said here and just accept my life for what it is and let people adapt to me if they can, if not, I don't dwell too much.. I figure the dwelling and fighting makes the disease worse in some way and I won't let "anything" be in it's arsenal.. I beat the attacks because I tell the formerly "so called beast" that it won't win. Gives me the ultimate power over it, even during a tough flare up.., and I suffer almost constantly, but it can't have my life because I won't let it.

    Thanks, Ray, for the wonderful forum...

    Thank you Ray for sharing the article and so glad for you that it is published.

    You describe my feelings and I am so glad I found this forum, I told my ENT about this site a few years ago, and wanted to know what he thought, he told me that if I felt secure and comfortable and it helped to go for it, I was thrilled, I told him the name of this site and when I got home, I immediately signed up.

    Thank you for ALL you do, I appreciate it.

    Thanks for all the kind words, folks. I use the story to tell others what it's like so that they understand things better. It can be helpful to show to spouses and best friends, too.

    Here's to all of us having a spin free day!

    excellent article - I think sometimes the biggest step we take is to realize that we have an incurable disease and know that we have to deal with this day in and day out - Our attitudes can often make us or break us, in Meniere's and everything else. Thanks for emphasizing the positive aspects of this, as well as any, illness and our never ending fight for answers and relief.

    Thanks Ray for this great article and priceless forum! :) :)

    Your remarks about living with meniere's are right on the mark, and I can honestly say that this forum has helped me LIVE with this disease, instead of constantly despairing over my symptoms!

    Best wishes and may God bless you,

    Thank you Ray. ;D When I was first diagnosed and scared I found your forum. It helped tremendously to know that people, regardless of the challenges meniere's presents, were coping and helping each other and living their lives. Reading people's comments reduced my anxiety a great deal and gave me a perspective that helped me understand and cope. I have recommended and discussed your forum with my ENT and my family has also checked it out and found it valuable. Thanks again!

    Ray thanks for sharing your article, and how you have grown since MM entered your life.

    It is very informative, and extremely positive for something so negative… but, it is only a negative it we allow it to be, right?

    Nicely put. Good to read as I sit here with pressure building and my own private symphony building to a crescendo. I have learned to be grateful for those attacks that are just "wobbles" and not full-blown attacks.

    Your article might help educate those people who say, "oh yes my brother (mom, cousin, self, etc.) gets dizzy too." MM is not just dizziness!!
