"The Day My Brain Exploded: A True Story" by Ashok Rajamani
After a full-throttle brain bleed at the age of twenty-five, Ashok Rajamani, a first-generation Indian American, had to relearn everything: how to eat, how to walk and to speak, even things as basic as his sexual orientation.
With humor and insight, he describes the events of that day as well as the long, difficult recovery period. That he lived to tell the story is miraculous.
More than a decade later he has finally reestablished a productive artistic life for himself, still dealing with the effects of his injury—life-long half-blindness and epilepsy— but forging ahead as a survivor dedicated to helping others who have suffered a similar catastrophe.
The name of his book is The Day My Brain Exploded: A True Story.
