The Day My Brain Exploded by Ashok Rajamani.

 

Arteriovenous malformation or AVM for short, is a very rare brain condition with just about a tenth of 1% of the population suffering from it. The author, Ashok, has it, and one day it takes its toll on him. This book discusses his life journey before, during and after that fateful day.

This book brings forth many positive things. Being that the condition is so rare, the book raises awareness about it. It also reveals the shocking neglect that AVM patients, along with other Traumatic Brain Injury patients, endure. But, I think the most valuable thing this book has to offer is the mindset of someone who has suffered brain damage.

Sure, there are things that we as outsiders can guess. But, then there are things that we think we know which turn out to be way off. And then there are some things we could never have imagined on our own. From the daily struggles to the emotional pain, Ashok leads the reader through it all, and it’s fascinating.
