    I had a bleed in the brain - in the cerebellum- in September 2017. I have come a long way but I want to walk unaided, ant to drive and play the piano and want to work. I also don't want to feel dizzy or unbalanced all he time. I have an ataxic right hand (I was right handed so I write like a baby with my right hand) and I find it hard to stand or walk.  I know I am lucky  but I want to be as I used to be. Is this possible? I have no Doctor or physio now.
