Blurb Blitz and Giveaway: The Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Chronicles by Tim Brown

Follow the struggles, joys and sorrows on one man's personal journey as he chronicles his travails with early onset dementia and a rare, terminal brain disease- no treatment, and no cure.

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.
