sunday evening reading 🔩 #lobotomy #memoir #howarddully

About to be my next read! Just checked out the preface and it hooked me already #mylobotomy #howarddully #charlesfleming #newbook

There's no better reading nook than a chair on the beach.

'Howard Dully, a bus-driver from California, was given a lobotomy at 12 years old. More than 40 years after the procedure, he goes in search of the story behind his surgery.' This story is so inspiring and beautiful, yet so horrific.

"Maybe that's why I behaved badly. I was being treated like a bad boy, so I acted like a bad boy. The rules weren't fair, so I broke the rules."

Catching up on posting #52weeks52books2017 with books 41, 42, 43, and 44. The Plague Race is an out of print book about Hong Kong and infectious disease which was fascinating! My Lobotomy a tragic autobiography about the youngest patient to receive one. Never Let Me Go, one of my favorites that I’ve read at least five times. And House of Cards, a British novel that the American television show is loosely based on. Six more weeks of 2017, eight more books to read! Wow this year has gone quickly... .

This was an incredibly fascinating but hard book to read. Unbelievable. Definitely the most unusual book I have ever read. I could not put it down. Howard is a brave soul and I am glad he told his story.

Book 7/20. My Lobotomy. Extraordinary and intense book. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 #bookstagram #bookchallenge #mylobotomy #howarddully #books

This entry into Gigi's Book Club is both sad and inspiring- and I don't say that often. My Lobotomy by Howard Dully is the memoir of Howard's childhood in which he did have a frontal lobotomy. I don't want to give anything away because I want you to read the book. But I will say that if the abuse that Howard went through in his youth happened today one if not both of his parent would probably end up in jail. Howard would be a very interesting person to talk to. Read the book that's all I can say.

"Maybe that's why I behaved badly. I was being treated like a bad boy, so I acted like a bad boy. The rules weren't fair, so I broke the rules."

If your older teen kids are interested in psychiatry or weird medical history or even just getting to know someone who made it through a very horrible situation this is one of my favorite nonfiction/autobiographies. There is much online about Howard Dully because he was featured on a radio show. You can tell by the title what happened to him, it's sad and inspiring all at the same time. #howarddully #icepick #icepicklobotamy #mylobotomy #nonfiction #autobiography #teenreads #bookrecommendation #myfavoritebook read a little about him before you pick it for your middle/high schooler because you know them better than me. #middleschoolbooks #highschoolbooks (if you want to read the whole post www.notquitewonderwoman.com/maybe-post-much-tv-read-books-instead/)

sunday evening reading 🔩 #lobotomy #memoir #howarddully

Finally I have some alone time to read this book. Super happy I found it at the school library. I've been looking for it for a while. #booksaremylife #howarddully #mylobotomy #memoir

When I bought this book, a memoir by Howard Dully, I knew it would tear at my heart but I didn't expect it to tear me up so badly. This book isn't written in a way to make you feel sorry for him. It's written as the facts. The heartbreaking facts. He didn't deserve to be treated the way he was 💔 #mylobotomy #howarddully

My sister said its a good read so ill give it a chance "My Lobotomy" - Howard Dully and Charles Fleming #bookworm #TrueStory #MyLobotomy #HowardDully #ReadingRainbow

A friend of mine told me about this book last summer and I finally got around to checking it out. While reading this book, my heart broke for this man. Very interesting read. I definitely recommend it to my friends who are interested in mental health/lobotomy. It was a barbaric practice to begin with, and to perform it on a child was just way out of line.

New book this week for class, couldn't put it down. Written by a survivor of an ice pick labotomy 💀, his story shows how screwed up our medical system can be & the damages done to children in dysfunctional families 💔 very interesting and heartfelt! #lobotomy #howarddully #walterfreeman #books #bestseller

Howard Dully was born on November 30, 1948, in Oakland, California, the eldest son of Rodney and June Louise Pierce Dully. Following the death of his mother from cancer in 1954, Dully's father married single mother Shirley Lucille Hardin in 1955.

Neurologist Walter Freeman had diagnosed Dully as suffering from childhood schizophrenia since age 4, although numerous other medical and psychiatric professionals who had seen Dully did not detect a psychiatric disorder. In 1960, at 12 years of age, Dully was submitted by his father and stepmother for a trans-orbital lobotomy, performed by Dr. Freeman. During the procedure, a long, sharp instrument called a leucotome was inserted through each of Dully's eye sockets 7 cm (2.75 inches) into his brain.

Dully took decades to recover from the surgery to the point where he could function in society; he was institutionalized for years as a juvenile (in Agnews State Hospital as a minor), transferred to Rancho Linda School in San Jose, California, a school for children with behavior problems, incarcerated, and was eventually homeless and an alcoholic. After sobering up and getting a college degree in computer information systems, he became a California state certified behind-the-wheel instructor for a school bus company in San Jose, California.

In his 50s, with the assistance of National Public Radio producer David Isay, Dully started to research what had happened to him as a child following his father's illness. By this time, both his stepmother and Dr. Freeman were dead, and due to the after effects of the surgery, he was unable to rely on his own memories. He traveled the country with Isay and Piya Kochhar, speaking with his family, relatives of other lobotomy patients, relatives of Dr. Freeman, and gaining access to Freeman's archives. Dully first related his story on a National Public Radio broadcast in 2005, prior to co-authoring a memoir published in 2007.
