A Waking Mind
Diana Lund brings her insightful and witty style to continue her story begun in "Remind Me Why I'm Here: Sifting through Sudden Loss of Memory and Judgment." In "A Waking Mind," she experiences three awakenings after a 1996 car accident and consequential mild traumatic brain injury. Eventually aware of her sudden ineptitude at her technical job, the onset of claustrophobia, and unexpected turns of events, such as, setting out for a zoo exhibit and winding up on the kiddie train, Lund absorbs what it means to be a cognitively-handicapped adult. While acquiring this new view, she begins to see flaws in her core beliefs about intelligence, goodness, and truth. Patterns grow clear. Others are struggling in the same neuronal waters in which she had nearly drowned. Having reached safe harbor, Lund keeps alive hope.
