Michael Albright /Does bending over increase your problem?/

Does bending over increase your problem?


Yes,  I  had  the issue  of  bending,
everfailing,  fearing   I  was  going
to fall over.  I also  had  a symmet-
trical  where  I would turn  to look,
felt my eyes  would  have  to catch
up  with  my  heart.   When  I  was
walking  my dead,  my vestal field
was  bouncing.  All of that is gone
now. I placed a card on a wall, the
Ace  of  Queens  inches  from  my
face.  I would do exorcisms where
I would nod up & down, try not to
lose,  focus  on the ax  on the card.
Did  that  one minute,  roasted one
minute,  rotated my head  lift to be
wrong for a minute.  I tried to keep
my focus  on the ax.  You can find
exertions  on  you  too   for   Gaze
Stabilization   that   will   help   to
overcome.  Just  don’t overdo it.  I
do  most   of  what   I  want  these
days,  just have  a  little  spindizzy
feeling  if I move my bed quickly.
Hoping  that will eventually go as
well.  It’s hard work but, given the
narrative, we  have  to  weep at  it.
