An editor from the online health magazine Healthline contacted me and asked me to write a contributing article about Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA). Here it is.

I’m convinced that PBA is the worst thing in the whole wide world.

  1. Excellent article and photo of you, Amy!

  2. You write great.

  3. Great article. I’m glad you can now be a voice and advocate for others that can’t express this.

    When I read this I immediately thought about you. You’re an inspiration. I am planning to start writing about my journey and survival of my strokes and thought about how much you have humanized the stroke experience for me. You gave and continue to give me hope in this new world and I just wanted to say thank you.

    My wife calls me Johnny 2.0 🙂 – she’s so amazing and right: I’m a different person because of my strokes having this new perspective on what is really important, what is worth the effort, and a very clear vision on what isn’t. It’s like I had a new operating system installed, one that I wouldn’t wish on my fiercest enemy and at the same time . . . one I hope to never need to re-install again.

  5. Hi Amy. Great article. It really opened my eyes to many things I did not realize. I was not educated at all on PBA. I’m so proud of you. Always have been. This article is so well written and will really help others like me that had no idea. I read Pat’s article. HE GETS IT! Please let him know how proud I am of him as well. Very informative and loving. Others will learn from that one too. I did. You’re photo is beautiful. I’m glad you two have each other💕. Miss and love you.
