With such hype this year about West Nile Virus, what's it really like to survive a brain injury? What is your loved one, colleague or friend experiencing on the "inside"?
Check out www.bdbrainwreck.com for Longview native's Becky Dunlap Dennis' journey of a brain injury and what it's like first hand.
"At 18,000 miles away from home, a business professional delivers a polished presentation to a group of executives. And within two hours, she forgets how to walk. Talking becomes too strenuous. She is struck by an odd series of neurological deficits that baffle her and a dozen doctors ... for 27 months.
Brain Wreck is a must read for anyone who has witnessed the frustration of a mysterious illness. This is a story of determination and an unrelenting journey to save one's mind. With humor and unabashed honesty, the author restores a shattered spirit while striving to be 'normal.'"
