Study Up For 'Think': Life After A Brain Injury
What is it like to lose a chunk of your memory and part of your sight at 25 years old? Ashok Rajamani tells Think host Krys Boyd about the experience that produced his memoir The Day My Brain Exploded: A True Story at noon.
After an aneurysm changed his life, Rajamani endured four years of depression and loneliness before visiting a support group for those with brain injuries. Turns out there were those with more profound struggles than he -- a former corporate lawyer whose recent triumph was being able to speak again; a former model whose face was paralyzed after a brain bleed. Rajamani wrote about the moment he realized how fortunate he was in this piece for The Atlantic.
Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, on KERA 90.1 or stream the show at kera.org.
