The brain. Its power has been shown to me throughout my whole life but up until recently I never put two and two together. As a child I was shown the brain is a powerful thing when my mom struggled with depression and started taking medicine. I was shown again how powerful the brain is when my own Grandmother started to not remember things or get lost. Then I was shown how the brain can house an illness so bad that it took a life. Hudson’s life. Sadly, I don’t think it registered with me how powerful the brain is until a recent visit with my Grandparents when my Grandma had no idea who I was. It got me thinking… how is it we as humans don’t allow ourselves to speak freely about our brain. We openly talk about nearly every other health issue we may come across but when it comes to the brain we stop ourselves. Why is the brain so taboo to talk about? It shouldn’t be. If we would just talk about it and get the treatment that is available lives would be saved.
