Do you think people find it hard to understand what you are going through due to the hidden nature of your condition? Here is your chance to show others how you feel...
No-one can see chronic dizziness: People often report that friends, colleagues, families and loved ones don’t understand what they are going through due to the hidden nature of this disability.
Living in fear: Many who experience dizziness fear going out. They worry if they will have another attack of dizziness, whether they will vomit or fall, or if they will be labelled as intoxicated by those who don’t understand.
Words are not enough: No matter how many words they use, people still say their symptoms are not fully understood.
Show us your dizziness...
- Without using words, create a piece of artwork, in any medium, to depict your dizziness; your hidden disability.
- Show us how you’re affected and how it feels for you.
- We also want to see YOU - the real person behind your dizziness. Show us the face behind the dizziness too by sending a photo of yourself to accompany your art.
Dizziness and Me was an original idea by Debbie Cane, Senior Clinical Scientist at Withington Community Hospital. The Ménière's Society is very pleased to be able to collaborate on this project. Together we can raise awareness of chronic dizziness and increase understanding among the general public, GPs, health professionals and the friends & families of those living with dizziness.Back to top
