I went into a coma that lasted fifty-two days, and during that month and a half I was in it, I stopped remembering most of the important things I'd been taking for granted all my life. It wasn't as if I'd forgotten everything I'd learned in life as this tries to imply: it's more like sometimes things take longer to slip from my short-term memory into my long-term memory than other times. Sometimes this happens quickly. Other times it doesn't. As it turned out, I have this traumatic brain injury that will never be going away like bad dreams go away. Even if a lot of the newer brain-damaged people still insist on calling their brain damage one of those confusing contemporary-sounding names like head injurywhich only makes the injury sound less severe than what it isI still call my injury brain damage, because it's still damage done to the brain, isn't it?
