    Excellent podcast, Dr. Parker. I was most impressed that the interview was with a personal experience, as opposed to just experts, trained in brain injury syndromes. It is highly difficult to place the entire journey into a pressure cooker, and the cooker does the job, not the cook themselves.

      Thanks Judith, well said. Passivity and denial is not the Way.
