Time II

Clock Lady / Wellcome Images I got a call from a fellow stroke victim, one who had her stroke recently. She wanted to know about Botox, which doctors sometimes inject into stroke limbs that aren't behaving. I had had the treatment.

"What does it feel like?" she asked.

"Like an injection," I said.

She sounded nervous.

"Look," I said, "If your doctor does a bad job, it leaves your system in about three months."

"Three months!" she said, astounded.

Suddenly I realized how different our concepts of time were. Stroke veterans think three months is a blink of an eye. Newbies don't.

Has your concept of time shifted?
