Susannah Cahalan - Brain On Fire - Cover

This is a MUST read. I could not put this memoir down. Susannah, a perfectly normal young woman on the cusp of her career at the New York Post loses her mind in a week. Was she psychotic or something else? Every test, every diagnosis, but nothing seemed right. Until one doctor asked the right question – and he saved her life. The story weaves back and forth from what Susannah remembers and medical information. Along with what her family and friends told her, she pieces together her month bordering the line of insanity.
