    Fresh ginger. Peeled one inch a day. Freshly sliced in hotnwater let it be for five minutes then sip when done eatbthe ginger. Talso ell cied inger or the ginger from the japanese places or markets that sell sushi or california rolls, its the original dizzy antidote and it is helpful. Its an acquired taste but youll adjust if you find it works for you.  Doctors can help you from the neck down it seems thats where most of the progress has been made lately,  they do have vestibular rehab that might be able to help you as well.

    gabapentin might be aboe  to help this too. I know a few people who went on it for this and were pleased. One switched over to prozac a year later.

    Dizzyness is a hard thing to beat and I think one of the reasons for this is because it can become such a habit. Places can trigger it, feelings can trigger it...it becomes intertwined with our anxiety and then becomes learned behaviour:

    A: If I go to the shops I will be dizzy.

    B: I go to the shops and I feel dizzy.

    C: I feel anxious.

    And on...and on...

    I am in this loop myself and like you and seeing a therapist for it. The trick is to know that it is anxiety and to not fear it. Fighting it only makes it worse.

    Acceptance of it allows for it to ease.

    First sorry about your Mom. Know  everything she taught you and he oove you remains within you, im sure shes now your angel and really wants you to have a hapoy and fun filled succesful life.

    dizzy is. Ahrd one but a common ine. Start with yoga. Breathing. Belly breathing and learn to functiin using your belly not your chest. Simple science is anxious people cant properly breathe using their chests because of the nature of anxiety and end uo shallow breathing, holding their breath or breathing to fast. Theres apos to teach belly breathing so good to oearn and live that.

    next is diet. Too much salt, imbalanced blood sugars bouncing uo and and down..poor nutitiinal diet all of it olays a role. Seek an anti inflammatiin diet and add in raw finger slices (half an inch) a day to you diet. If its too bitter dip it in honey. Ginger is a Godsend for dizzy stuff. 

    A doctor cant cure lonliness, or really a mindet, getting stuck in the past neither can a pill. They can help but nor fix. Therapy..group therapy might help you out way more then a pill. You are looking for a fix on an emotional issue by taking a pill. This is an emotionally based issue. Pill might help, food will help but the mindset has to change.
