With this untraditional blog post, I’m giving you an original short story AND a bevy of pop culture recommendations.
In this pop culture post, I discuss how my favorite currently airing TV show, “The Flash,” uses brain injury in its plots and as a part of its character development. This is my second blog post inspired by Brain Injury Awareness Month (March).
Here’s a book review of Leslie Jamison’s collection of essays on illness and empathy, “The Empathy Exams.” Since March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, I have decided to do my featured posts (book review, pop culture, essay, writing update and extra pop culture content) related to brain injury or illness. This is my book review. “The Empathy Exams” is a book of essays on injury, recovery, illness and empathy instead of specifically on brain injury.
A monthly writing update where I share a visual way that has helped me organize my memoir and give a word count update.
Sometimes my injured brain acts totally different than before my Traumatic Brain Injury and other times I feel like those default settings appear. Here’s an essay about such a phenomenon.
