My ET is Not a Weakness

Posted on March 11, 2022

Irem Sara’s Story

My name is Sara. I’m 21 years old and I was diagnosed to essential tremor two years ago.


The first time that I heard this I felt exhausted. The first medication I started caused complications with my heart. After I took my medicine, I was feeling like I was fighting with a heart attack for every second. It was a really hopeless situation for me. Then I changed my medication and the shaking in my hands, and foot decreased a little bit. I was a little thing for people but kind of a miracle for me.

I worry about my future, but I know my ET it is not a weakness. I still love my hands and I know I will have an amazing life with them.
