He has made his story universal, yet personal and relatable - The PSP Chronicles by Tim Brown

THE PSP CHRONICLES is not meant to explain PSP or to give readers comprehensive (or even objective) insight into PSP’s destructive path. Instead, THE PSP CHRONICLES is meant to show readers how an unexpected, incredibly difficult, and life-altering diagnosis has affected the life of this man Tim Brown.[...]THE PSP CHRONICLES is raw, because the journal is delivered as-is; it is episodic and not organized as a tension-driven story. It provides insight into an everyman’s experience writing through a devastating disease.- Amy Edelman

Description:

Published: July 2018

T.J. Brown, PSP - FTD is an ordinary family man with an extraordinary story. He is from Toronto, On but has called the small town of Ayr, in southwestern Ontario home for the past twenty-five years.

Through his efforts, it is Tim's hope to give voice to those suffering from PSP and similar diseases that no longer have a voice of their own. Advocating for those affected... patients, spouses, families and friends. Always, with the goal of raising awareness, understanding and support to further research into prime of life brain diseases. He has made his story universal, yet personal and relatable.

EXCERPT

Reading and focusing are becoming much more difficult for me now. I have become critical to the point of berating myself over spelling errors, grammar, missing words, punctuation and rambling sentences. The medical terminology for this is agrammatism. I thought, “What the hell?” This story and subsequent books aren’t meant to be perfect written works. This is a true story of my personal journey with a rare, terminal brain disease called PSP and dementia, which continues to evolve before my readers’ eyes. The road I travel includes my relationship with God, my family, friends, and all the baggage I can carry. Come. I invite you to travel on this journey with me and share in my experiences, wherever they may lead.
