How Whole Brain Living Saved My Life

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

When Jill Bolte Taylor's revolutionary book, Whole Brain Living came out in May 2021, I was looking for answers.

After thinking about it what feels like my whole adult life, on May 2, 2021, I tried to kill myself. It was a dissociative episode unlike any I've ever experienced where it was like I was floating above my body, watching myself walk straight into traffic with my unsuspecting dog. It's like something in my brain broke. Thankfully the truck that was speeding down the street along with the line of cars braked, but that thing inside me (back then I thought it was a monster) flipped it off. That thing was pissed. When I regained consciousness on the other side of the road, I was shaking... the truck had come really close... if things went just a little different that day, I may not be writing this.

Two weeks later, Jill Bolte Taylor's book Whole Brain Living was released, and it gave me hope to live.
