This well said post grabbed me, to put it mildly. Been trying to explain this to those who ask, but never can quite portray what I’ve learned about this aspect of the brain. The post condenses this aspect of my experience from February 2014 till today.
This so very unfortunately is relayed to the survivor too late in the recovery process! The plastic stretches and hardens BOTH ways!
Calling it a ‘hellish cat’ would be too nice of a choice of words. I want to yell for all to hear what words I would choose!
