I am a neurodiverse author. I am a husband, father and disabled Marine. The son of latino immigrants I pursued the American dream until my military service-related injuries caught up with me in his early 30’s. Nearing my bachelor’s degree and landing a job in civil service, I would suffer a failed back surgery followed by diagnosis’s of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, Mild Cognitive Impairment and a myriad of other neurological conditions of my physical body including but not limited to constant tremors and nerve/muscle pain. This would force me to give it all up. I would never work again. As my conditioned worsened, I struggled to make sense of what was happening. Over time I would become further challenged with substantial memory loss, word loss and an overall deficit in my ability to communicate effectively. With the support of my loving wife, I decided to write, write, write before my words leave me. I hope to capture my love, my suffering and my hope that the world could learn from my struggle before my social isolation leaves my story forgotten.
