Thank you all 🙂 for your replies, I never expected to receive so many!
All of you have certainly helped lift my mood at the very least and now I'm feeling much more positive.
It was a huge relief to find out there are so many support groups in my area & there's even a Neurologist with a special interest in Ataxia (thanks for his name - I've made a note of it)! 😄 Very kind of you all!!!
Many warm regards
