Publisher's Summary

Encephalitis almost ended Chris Maxwell's life. The scar tissue in his brain and life with epilepsy made him - and his family and friends - feel like the life they'd known changed suddenly and permanently. For Maxwell and the staggering number of people facing traumatic brain injuries, epilepsy, or other painful encounters, life is experienced through a different lens. Names are tough to remember. Medication is a common acquaintance. Exhaustion, seizures, and mood swings are daily traveling companions. Maxwell's writing and the stories of others offers hope. Hope that you're not alone, even when your experience underwater seems to change everything.

Memory Loss, Seizures, Hope

What about Chris Maxwell’s performance did you like?

Sincere. Good speaker.

Any additional comments?

This is one of the few items on audible in regards to epilepsy. I wasn't expecting it to touch me as deep. You feel like you have just gone to group therapy. He understands the pain of looking at people going about their lives but not getting lost in that downward spiral of what was.

amazing story

Thank you for sharing your story. You're an inspiration. This book gives so much hope as the aunt of a child that suffered viral encephalitis and now 2 years after continues to stuggle with seizures.
