Proudly Announcing The Newly Updated "Why Do You Talk Like That?" Book

A first-hand account of life after a fractured mandible (jaw).
    SEATTLE, WA, March 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marie Buckner is pleased to announce the release of her book titled "Why Do You Talk Like That?". This book provides readers with a real-life story of what it is like to wake up and find yourself in the Intensive Care Unit having to recuperate from a number of life-threatening injuries, including a fractured mandible (jaw). This first part of a book series will take readers on a journey from in-patient care and jaw wiring surgery to living in everyday society. Written by a patient for a patient. 

"It was a dark, wintery night when the car I was a passenger in hit the oncoming car. The impact was on the passenger's side...my side.

Apparently, my body was thrown forward. My head went through the windshield, but not before hitting the dash. When it hit the dash, my head turned to the right side, leaving my jaw to hit the dash. Thus...a broken jaw. Or, in technical terms, it is known as a fractured mandible. This was to be the beginning of a life-long relationship with the after effects of an injured jaw," Marie explained.

"Recuperating from a fractured jaw is not easy. It takes time, effort, and persistence. My jaw was wired shut for 6-7 weeks. I learned to get nutrition through a straw. Pain can be overwhelming when something as simple as yawning, sneezing or laughing come along. After my wires were removed, I needed to learn how to get my jaw back in shape. No one gave me any exercises or advice. So, I took it upon my self to develop a recuperation strategy.

My recuperation strategy includes exercises, learning how to do oral care, how to slowly get back into eating "real" foods, and adapting to everyday life. After having so many people ask me to write a book, I did just that. This is the final result," Marie stated.

This informative book comes complete with 3 bonus sections. Sections include specially developed recipes, bone-building foods and nutrients, and jaw exercises. Readers will also learn about other valuable resources.

Marie's book is available in a variety of formats to fit readers' needs. Readers can purchase it in CD or ebook format directly from her website titled "Booktoots' Healing" at booktoots dot come. The book is also available in paperback through Create Space and Amazon.
