Faces of MdDS
“Lost at Sea” by Desiree Meek
Ten thoughtful images create the series “Lost at Sea” that tells a story of powering through the discouragement and darkness that so often come with having a chronic illness like MdDS.
The Facts of MdDS
It is typically triggered by motion: cars, trains, airplanes, ships, boats, and even fast elevators.
The average person sees 20+ doctors before getting a diagnosis.

The MdDS phenomenon is the natural result of the human brain adapting to environmental motion and is thus the quintessential neurological disorder.Yoon-Hee Cha, MD
