Description
One day in 2009, journalist Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a strange hospital room, strapped to her bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. A wristband marked her as a "flight risk," and her medical records—chronicling a monthlong hospital stay of which she had no memory at all—showed hallucinations, violence, and dangerous instability. In this powerful, fast-moving narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her inexplicable descent into madness and the brilliant, lifesaving diagnosis by renowned neurologist Souhel Najjar that nearly didn't happen. He recognized the symptoms of a newly classified autoimmune disorder, possibly tied to schizophrenia and autism, in which the body attacks the brain, and which may explain "demonic possessions" throughout history.
