You never really know what kind of challenge life is going to hand you.
Five years ago author Abigail Thomas was waiting for her husband
Rich to return from walking their dog. But while chasing the dog across
the street, Rich was hit by a car. His brain shattered...he had no
memory of the incident, or anything that happened the hour, day
or year before. He was subject to fits of rage, terrors and hallucinations.
His life, and Abigail's were changed forever. Abigail was forced to
make the difficult choice between trying to care for him herself or
submitting him to an institution for the rest of his days. In order to
have some semblance of a life herself...she chose the latter. She
shares that experience with us...
