Today's guest is Darlene Carol Dickson, author of "Musings of an Amputee."

Many books have been written extolling the virtues of mind over matter and “how I overcame great adversity.” Darlene Carol Dickson has no intentions of attempting anything so ambitious, but she definitely has things to share. Her experiences were not mind over matter. She did not pull herself up by her bootstraps, and she found getting back on the horse to be more than a notion. The burden of such activity would have made her recovery from amputation surgery insurmountable. And she still hasn't gotten over the loss of her leg. She lives with it.

She chronicled the events and emotions during the experience of losing her leg as best she could. Often, through the haze of Demerol and Morphine, she wrote in her journal while recuperating in the hospital. "Musings of an Amputee" is her story.
