Living with Brain Dysfunction

Posted Apr 04 2008 12:00am
Some struggle to know what it is like to experience autism or any other neurological condition. Books like Temple Grandin's Thinking in Pictures articulate and assist us in walking a mile in someone else's shoes. This thought provoking video of the "singing scientist" describes her perception, orientation, and functioning during a stroke.  It is a rare glimpse into the reality some encounter daily. Her description of making a phone call mid-stroke reminds me of my son's struggle with handwriting. It also leads me to ponder our leaving this life and the promise of heaven.

Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.
Luke 23:46

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
