I had a skiing accident when I was 15 years old. I was hit in the back of the head with a T-bar of a ski lift. All symptoms of ataxia appeared at age 69 years. I am presently retired and I am mentally able to deal with this physical problem. I understand myself and want to help myself along with my doctor.
