I can’t stop, and I won’t stop? What happens when you are willing to share your journey, but others are reluctant? I got this crazy idea in my head ; I was going to record my vestibular rehabilitation journey, in hopes we may all learn from the experience. What I failed to realize before I promised to deliver:
1. I need to ask permission
2. I have no idea how to edit video
3. I can’t be in complete control of the video recording, because I am in therapy.
I often lead with ideas first, application second. I may need to rethink the way I approach project ideas.
I can overcome obstacles 2 and 3, however, convincing the physical therapy center to allow me to record this journey may become an obstruction of my goal.
I believe this PT center is the best at what they do. My PT therapist has won me over. She is all business, and together we will kick butt and take names.
If you believe capturing my vestibular rehabilitation journey, for the next three months, would be beneficial, please comment below. I will direct the owner of the PT center to your comments.

Procedure performed during VRT day 2
Computer Dynamic Posturography: I was harnessed into the CDP. I was asked to close my eyes and attempt to maintain balance. I did not perform well on this portion of the testing. The minute I closed my eyes, I would fall, and the harness would catch me. The second test in the CDP was motor control testing which tracks your recovery based on sudden movements. When the platform moved backwards, I have zero chance at balance recovery. When the platform moved forward, I was somewhat able to maintain my balance.
I found this great video from the Dizzy Balance Center on CDP and the purpose of the testing
