Her doctor once explained the disease as a wall around a person’s memories, and the brain simply can’t get to them. The mind knows the memories are there, but they can’t be seen, read, felt, touched, or heard. So when Mom feels an emotional response to something that’s a memory, she reacts with anger and frustration because she can’t get through or over that wall. -Raymond Benson, The Black Stiletto
