Living with Brain Dysfunction

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
