People say, It'll be easier on him, he's still young, he doesn't remember, he doesn't understand. It
is so much harder on you. None of it makes sense. You do have memories,
but they are flashes. You do understand, but you understand now, not
how now fits in with before and after. You have no cohesive narrative.
Everyone needs a narrative to tell themselves of their lives. You have
these puzzle pieces, and you has no idea how they fit together and what
picture they're making. How can that be easier?
