Thanks for link to TV interview - it was interesting to WATCH him as he describes the brain malfunctions and his description of Going To Pluto for relief. 

  

I love the Zoned Out moments. Sounds interesting, adding it to my library. 

Appears to be a movie too.

This was a great story and I thought Obrien but it into layman's terms so folks could understand what was happening in his brain. I do want to read his book.

 

thanks for posting the link to his story and his book.

 God Bless, paul
