About the Book
Diana was raised on a Minnesota dairy farm, but it was a pig that started her career path. She went from sewing a tiny pig flap into a heart valve, to engineering a new concept modifying the orifice of the valve, to founding her own medical device manufacturing company. Her farm upbringing with its exposure to incessant hard work, and survival of childhood sexual abuse, gave her the core determination necessary to face a mystifying, debilitating illness, her husband’s attempt to takeover her company, and desires so forceful as to pose threats which could topple her very identity.
In Too Damb Dumb To Think, Diana shares the intimate and relentless questions that plagued her as she valiantly and not so valiantly faced the traumas of hostile corporate board meetings, an arduous backpacking journey in the Colorado Rockies, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and her identity quest. It’s a trail of discovery. And as she strives to maintain her audacious grasp on life, she learns that wallowing in the mud may be necessary for a time, but staying there is not allowed.
