Unless you’re a scientist, therapist, someone caring for a brain injured person or a victim who sustained a head injury, the brain is not something that most of us think about.

The nearly three-pound organ, stored neatly inside of it’s bony shell, holds thousands of our secrets and most precious and darkest memories, controls our stop and go behavior buttons, acts as the starter kit for our movements, and plays the role of interpreter to our senses and dreams.

He learned to sign just so he could communicate with me, and even after almost 7 years of marriage, we are still like newlyweds. I cannot stop feeling so much love and appreciation for a man who can love the “broken” me, even learning a whole new language so he can communicate with me.

Instead, I wrote him in as himself – kind, loving, wonderful. Not so imaginative, I guess, but I could not picture him as anything different. I save those monsters for the ones that found it fun to hurt me.
