Abstract:

"Don't Worry, I Have a Hole in My Head: A Memoir on Heartache and Head Injury is a humorous and thoughtful cross between Jill Bolte Taylor's My Stoke of Insight and Jenny Lawson's Furiously Happy. Shocking and funny, Hayes' memoir shares the true story of a sudden brain hemorrhage at the age of twenty-two - and the heartache and strength that it took to overcome it. At first Hayes uses a blanket of comedy to cloak herself from her new reality--after all, sending out funny tweets is far easier than admitting to the world that she's lost basic motor functions like walking and talking. Humbled by the pain, she must admit to herself that that she is no longer the carefree, 20-something planning to marry her high school sweetheart. With this realization, a brave young woman forces herself to confront her new normal--and to quit cracking jokes about catheters."--Amazon.com.
