Coming soon: my medical memoir entitled, A DIFFERENT FRAME OF MIND: LIVING A FULL LIFE WITH TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY. This is a follow up to my 2014 book entitled, DAYS OF DAZE: MY JOURNEY THROUGH THE WORLD OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY.
DAYS OF DAZE recounts the acute phase of my struggle with a brain injury in the aftermath of being hit by a car. A DIFFERENT FRAME OF MIND describes my efforts to cope with lingering symptoms on a long-term basis.
I am currently in the final stages of formatting and editing the manuscript. Undoubtedly, this has been the most difficult book I have ever written. Organizing the subject matter has been extraordinarily daunting, as the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual challenges I’ve faced in the aftermath of my injury are all intertwined. Being honest with the reader has required that I be brutally honest with myself. I’ve had to face issues I’d prefer to avoid.
Writing this book has been a painful journey. But it has helped me make peace with the most tragic event in my life.
