Dear Stephen:

I picked up this book because I'm in the process of writing a scientific memoir entitled "How I Stopped My Mother From Forgetting Me!". I use to read all of your books growing up, but I stopped at Pet Cemetery. I can't remember why, but it made me mad. I really enjoyed this book, so I better start again.

The food industry is causing dementia and I'm using my professional background to help my mother, even though she fights me for the sugar all the time and dumps out the water behind my back constantly.

I realize you wrote this book 17 years ago, and you were run down by a car almost 20 years ago, but all of my reading on the brain has taught me that pain can be eliminated. So if you still have pain, then I would suggest reading Dr. Doidge's books. They are a wealth of knowledge on the subject. After all in Tippi Hedren's recent book, she is still in a lot of pain from earlier accidents.

Thanks for a great resource and a great read.

I am sorry to hear about your mother. I hope there is a cure very soon.
Like GNTLGNT said, keep going. Other than On Writing, has it been over thirty years since you've read one of his books?

My Dad had Alzheimer's and all his life he had a sweet tooth (not sure if the two thinks are related or not)

I did read Green Mile after the movie because I was real interested in the source of the movie and spirituality of it. I got lost inThe Stand several times, and never finished it. Not sure of the timelines of those written.
