As a parent of a daughter with multiple sclerosis (benign), I have been so engaged with articles in your magazine. However, the piece on Denise Reagor and her ensuing amnesia (“Am I Nothing But What I Remember?”, July/August 2008) disturbed me, as there was no mention of what people should do in response to a blow to the head. Denise's well-meaning friends should have been aware that a 911 call or a trip to the nearest hospital was in order, regardless of what the injured asked of them.
I realize this article was about amnesia and its effect upon lifestyle. However, I think the author missed an opportunity to educate and reinforce what many of us have come to learn is the correct preventive action following such an injury.
