There was a profound and emotional response to ‘My Broken Brain’ a documentary that aired on RTE1 last Tuesday 17th July. Focusing on the lives of patients suffering from debilitating neurological diseases and the medical professionals (including Prof. Tim Lynch and the Dublin Neurological Institute) that work with them to treat, manage and support their conditions. Viewers took to social media to express their admiration and respect for all who participated in the programme with descriptions such as ‘heartbreaking’, ‘uplifting’ and ‘humbling’ and seeking to express hope for the future while acknowledging the terrible adversity that sufferers of these neurological diseases must contend with.
