Brain on Fire
Susannah Cahalan is an up-and-coming journalist at the New York Post who becomes plagued by seizures and voices in her head. As weeks progress and Susannah quickly moves deeper into insanity, her behaviors shift from violence to catatonia. After a series of tantrums, misdiagnoses, and a lengthy hospital stay, a fortunate last-minute intervention by one doctor at last gives her a diagnosis and a chance to rebuild her life. Based on a true story.
