I Never Lose Sight of My Joy, Despite My ET

Posted on March 3, 2022

Sebnem’s Story

My struggle with essential tremor (ET) started in childhood. My hands have been trembling since I was little. It was initially thought to be a social phobia.


I was diagnosed while I was in college and I started taking medication. Life was tough until I found the right medication.

Sometimes it still challenges me. But if I have it, I think it must mean something and I never lose my joy. Life is beautiful with its challenges.

I think ET has made me strong and more understanding. I am grateful for that.
