But My Brain Had Other Ideas

• According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur every year in the U.S., either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries.
• Current estimates are that 1 in 200 to 300 people have cavernous malformations—the type of malformed blood vessels in the brain that caused this author's brain injury—and that at least 30% of them will develop symptoms.
• Most books about brain injury focus on the injury and its immediate aftermath—acute recovery—and end their stories before tackling the daunting task of long-term recovery; this book explores on-going life as well as the drama of the initial crisis.
