Salman Rushdie is speaking out about his current health status after going through a horrifying on-stage stabbing incident last year.
The author detailed how he is yet to recover completely and is now struggling to write.
The 75-year-old notable personality was on his way to delivering a speech in New York in front of a live audience. But little did he know about the horror that was in store for him.
The knife-wielding suspect came his way and brutally hit him in the face and body. He was reported to have been stabbed at least 12 times, leaving the audience watching in absolute horror.
He was immediately rushed to a nearby local hospital and that is where he was reported to have undergone emergency surgery. Despite the massive loss of blood and the suspect’s every attempt to take his life, he managed to survive.
But that came with the cost of one of his eyes. The author still managed to appear right in front of the cameras and speak about how he is alright and would fight back by coming to normal as soon as possible.
Salman has recently sat down for an interview with The New Yorker and spoken about his ailing health condition. He revealed how he believes he is suffering from PTSD after the attack.
Similarly, he detailed more about how he has trouble now writing and isn’t at the same potential that he used to be.
“I am yet to get my writing groove back again. I sit down to write but it’s mostly junk. I end up deleting most of the things that I am writing and it’s not a great feeling”- he reportedly explained.
In the same way, the author says that he is yet to be able to type a lot because of a lack of sensation in his fingertips. But he hopes to overcome this but just does not know if things would be getting back to normal of not.
