    Just wanted to say thanx to you JillbolteTaylor for the crystal clear explanation that you have given as to what happened to me six years ago!
    Almost identical the experience it just happened over a longer time scale, the “recovery” has taken 5 yrs & since last June after 5yrs everything seems to be upright again… previously it was like everything was on a tilt, no real words for it all, just wanted to say love n thanx for such a clear & conscise explanation for something i thought to be inexpliccable…

    The New York Times Sunday Newspaper on May 25 had a great two page article on Jill Bolte Taylor and her book, “MY STROKE OF INSIGHT”. Her book is a must read and this NY Times article – called “A Superhighway to bliss” is worth checking out too.

    I’ve been recommending Jill Bolte Taylor’s book “My Stroke of Insight” to everyone I know. It’s the best book I’ve read all year!
    You can get the book for just $16.47 with free shipping from Amazon! Here is the Amazon link:
