I recently read a book called Overcome Burned Blinded and Blessed by Carmen Blandin she is a woman who was beaten and chemically burned by her husband of nine years Carmen writes around the event to give background she s a nurse and afterwards to show where she is today she might get a face transplantI expected to feel immeasurable sadness even depression reading her story but instead I felt compassion anger and pride never pityCarmen is a wonderfully clear and straight forward narrator perhaps the reason I didn t feel so much sadness for her is that she doesn t often let herself feel sadness at her situation Sure there are moments when she s overwhelmed by circumstances but her first thoughts throughout her ordeal were of her daughters well beingHer story is an absorbing one Not only because of the horror of what happened but also because Carmen is a nurse with a uniue perspective on what has happened to her My husband works in a hospital and has always claimed health care workers have to have a uniue sense of humor Carmen certainly does she makes fun of her missing ear by waving her ear flap around Further evidence of a resilient sense of humor comes from a conversation between Carmen and her sisterWell I said to Kess frustrated at least I don t have to dress up for Halloween What do you mean Kess askedI can go as an accident victim Carmen s visions while she was in a drug induced coma were the most memorable to me Interspersed with hallucinations and dreams about Dr Phil she received one clear message Life is a choice I think we often forget how much our attitudes and actions can affect the path our lives takeThe takeaway for me be thankful and content Carmen now blind briefly regained sight in one eye with an artificial cornea When she lost that precious bit of sight again she realized how important it is to be thankful for what we do have in the here and now
