Living with tremors can make you feel like shrinking away into a shell. Some people end up never leaving the house from the embarrassment they feel. There’s no reason to let ET negatively impact your life and happiness. Join support groups and learn as much as you can from fellow sufferers with the following resources.
Daily Strength – Essential Tremor Support Group
A forum with dozens and dozens of support threads on ET. People come here looking for help, sharing experiences and symptoms of their condition. Although you should seek the advice of a doctor, this may be a good place to connect with others for support.
The International Essential Tremor Foundation is a non-profit founded in 1988. Their stated mission is in funding “research to find the cause of essential tremor (ET) that leads to treatments and a cure, increases awareness, and provides educational materials, tools, and support for healthcare providers, the public, and those affected by ET.” This is a good place to find support and also orient yourself to the current understanding and treatments available for ET.
