When I got sick, I was dating what I now know is the most dishonest and deceitful man I have ever met in my entire life. I am now dating the most honest and genuine man I have ever met. It’s like night and day. A friend that I recently had a falling out with told some lies. My doctors told lies. Look, please don’t lie. Especially to stroke survivors. People with brain injuries are already, automatically incredibly, incredibly angry. Being lied to or finding out that a lie was told about them makes that anger so very much worse. Once you’re caught in a lie, everything you ever say will be questioned.
“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” – Mark Twain
