The “Life, Meaning & Videotape” program is showing a movie Thursday night that caught my attention: “I Am.”
It’s by Tom Shadyac, Hollywood director, writer and actor. He experienced a traumatic bike accident in 2007 that left him with post-concussion syndrome. He felt so terrible, he thought death would be an excellent alternative.
“This syndrome leaves you with a concussion that doesn’t go away. It can take months or years to recover, and some never do. As one might expect, it sent Shadyac into a deep depression. While he wasn’t suicidal like many who experience post-concussion syndrome, he had the profound insight that “the world he was living in was a lie.” — From Huffingtonpost.com.
