“A Stitch in Time” by Lauren Marks

stitchoftimeLauren Marks was twenty-seven when an aneurysm ruptured in her brain and left her fighting for her life. She woke up in a hospital with serious deficiencies in her reading, speaking, and writing abilities, and an unfamiliar diagnosis: APHASIA. She also woke up…different. The way she perceived her environment and herself had profoundly changed. Lauren began a journal, to chronicle her year following the stroke; a case study of a brain slowly piecing itself back together, featuring clinical research about aphasia and language, interwoven with Lauren’s narrative and actual journal entries that marked her progress.
