remembered contributions

from “FAMOUS PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES”

Fame is overrated. But these folks accomplished things that have been considered worth remembering. Some, more precisely, were infamous.

But the writings of Fyodor Dostoevsky were an important part of my pilgrimage to God and my remembrance of my baptism into Christ:

Fyodor DostoevskyDOSTOYEVSKI Fyodor, 1821-1881, (epilepsy),
Russian author. Had three convulsive seizures as a child and complex partial seizures in adolescence. His seizures began with a feeling of ecstasy, followed by anguish, then convulsions. His characters had epilepsy in some of his writing. Wrote novels which were published after his death Crime and Punishment 1886, The Idiot 1887, Brothers Karamazov 1912.
