Eek...Running behind this morning but I wanted to share with you guys what I was reading. Especially since several of you were instrumental in my getting it (although you didn't know).
Several of you have encouraged me to write a NASCAR story, and...well, I'm thinking about it. I have an idea and it involves one of the characters having amnesia. Since I don't know a thing about the subject, I went to the library and found several books about it. Two of the books are written from the scientific standpoint. This book is written by a woman who had amnesia.
It's an interesting book, but it has also been helpful in a way I never would have expected. Since having his surgery, and then experiencing a grand mal seizure in July of last year, my husbands memory is iffy at times.
Things he's known all of his life, he doesn't remember now. And thing that happened just prior to the seizure last year, he doesn't remember. Sometimes I get frustrated and impatient (especially when we repeat the same conversation three days in a row) but this book has been great in helping me understand things from his point-of-view. I also get to see how another spouse handled some of these same situtations and guess what? I'm only human so...it doesn't make it okay that I get irritated, but it does seem to be a natural response. LOL
I doubt any of you will rush right out and pick up this book. But I wanted to share it with you guys anyway.
Have a fantastic weekend!!!
Peace and Love,
