Chapter ONE

It all started with jury duty. It was a welcome reprieve from my stressful job as a collections & finance manager, but I wouldn’t say I was enjoying it. The acoustics in the County Court building seemed really terrible. I was hearing some sort of ringing, a high pitched whine. Only the ringing didn’t go away when I left the building. It continued, worsening even, throughout the week. On day three, when I cupped my hands over my ears and snapped at my kids for being noisy, my husband knew something was wrong. “You need to call the doctor”, he said.

He was right.

That was early August of 2013.  A lot has happened since then. A lot has changed. Whether the changes are good or bad is all a matter of perspective. This is my story, from my perspective; the good, the bad, and everything in between.

There’s your teaser, for the book that may or may not get written. What next? I barely remember the 6 months following that. I’m having memory problems. Clarity issues. WRITER’S BLOCK. Is there a cure? Is it permanent? Will she ever break free?!?!

I think this is the kind of endeavor that drives people to Crazy Town. I might be okay with that 😉

  1. You are going to have to ask people like Mike, me, sarah, Ann, and others to write their perspective of what was going on when you don’t remember certain periods. I will start writing mine now. 🙂

  2. Good idea from your mom. Others, too. I can certainly add from the perspective if being a trained interpreter and having no idea what to do with you! Ncie teaser. I want more . . .
