The brain can distort your thoughts if you have an acute infection, fever, tumor, Alzheimer’s, lacking certain vitamins and minerals, or severely dehydrated. Non-prescription and prescription drugs and anesthesia can distort things in the brain as well. I have a colorful picture of the brain I found on Photobucket, a bit of art if you will in hopes for brighter days to come. Yet life is not too colorful these days, a gray palette. My father has a brain tumor, and underwent surgery this past Friday. His thoughts are distorted right now. Words come out wrong or no words at all. Previously, we know his distortion has been caused by the tumor, but now we are not sure if it is post-surgerical swelling that is causing the distortions, or other things now. Prayers are requested for my father’s full recovery, and strength for my mother and family.
