This link to the Guardian online details two viewpoints of one event, each from the perspective of the two main parties involved. The event in question was a surgery that involved deep brain stimulation, wherein holes would be drilled into the skull and an electrode used to stimulate the deep insides of the brain. That’s a pretty simplistic and possibly poorly termed explanation but for the sake of simplicity, let’s just say that I’m a layman and it’s the best I’ll cough up.

The two main players were Fergus Henderson, chef/owner of St John, a rather lovely restaurant in London and his doctor, Warwan Hariz.

It’s heartening to read what Henderson has to say about being calm when most other people would be petrified and how he seems to have an almost nonchalant response when he first learnt he had Parkinson’s.

Shit’s mad inspirational.
