Missing Frames: Memoir of a Woman Living with Hidden Disabilities by Scooter Review
Hidden disabilities are real. Just ask Scooter, survivor of two traumatic brain injuries-one from a 1976 car accident and the other related to a 2009 fall. Limited cognitively, Scooter suffers from memory loss and chronic pain.
Still, Scooter is living proof that after a sudden life change, it truly is possible to overcome adversity, find joy and forgiveness, and become a stronger person.
In her inspirational narrative, Scooter shares a glimpse into the events before, during, and after her second life-changing injury as she attempted to find her way back from the darkness of amnesia and into the light of healing.
As she battled physical discomfort and psychological challenges that involved all aspects of perception, thinking, reasoning, and memory, Scooter details how she relied on an archangel physician to provide the tether to reality and much-needed structure while she bravely battled many obstacles to reclaim and rebuild her life as an intelligent and resilient single mother.
Missing Frames shares the true story of one woman's journey through unseen health challenges as she finds peace and strength amid pain and suffering and raises awareness about invisible disabilities.
About the author
Scooter is an invisibly disabled woman who suffered two traumatic brain injuries – one in 1976 and the other in 2009. Today she continues to deliberately work toward achieving a healthy, well-balanced quality of life. This is her first book.
You can purchase this book on Amazon.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- I was so impressed that the author was able to pull together this true story with a limited memory. It must have been and is a challenge to face everyday, but I am so glad that she is committed to her health and recovery.
Sharing her story in a way that is so open, honest and from the heart makes this read a really unique one. I could not imagine having to go through the same situations and this book drew me into Scooter's story until the very end. Living with a disability no one can see, how would you handle that? It really makes you think.
