Dr. Neumann Couldn't explain this Any Closer to the Truth. Bright Light, Noise, and Fatigue along with the EXCRUCIATING Pain left in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the brain, causes more agression than you can ever imagine. The urge to fit in once again and not being able to even though you appear that you can allows you the urge and ability to let the worst in you come out just to prove that you can. Been there, Done that after recovering from a right temporal Lobectomy some 12 years ago and having an invisibly bruise on my brain for five years. Again Dr. You Are So Right.
