Before I met Dr. Clouse I felt there was no hope. I have cerebellar atrophy and all the neurologist’s I went to painted a pretty gloom picture for my future. They said I would only get worse and that is what happened. I lost my job, my self respect and my self confidence.
After working with Dr. Clouse I am now steadier on my feet and my husband and I are now walking up to three miles a day. I don’t worry about stairs anymore. I’m jogging, playing tennis and just received an award for most improved player this summer from the golf league I play in.
But the best gift I received from Dr. Clouse is hope! I now feel like the sky’s the limit. I can make the future the way I want it to be. He taught me the tools I needed to cope with the challenges of my ataxia and to be able to live my life once again. I’m once again giving myself permission to have fun!!!!!
