Yesterday was #worldmentalhealthday and in support of this important mission our book of the month was chosen to explore these themes. Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by @suscahalan chronicles one woman’s illness and road to recovery. The book covers Cahalan’s life after her recovery, including her reactions to watching videotapes of her psychotic episodes while in the hospital. Cahalan also discusses her symptoms prior to her hospitalization, as she had previously been diagnosed by both a psychiatrist and by herself with bipolar disorder. While researching, she learned that the disease had only been discovered three years before she became ill. Her research indicated that in 2009 most people with the disease were either misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. For book updates download Words of Women’s app. Link in bio 👉
