Not only is it a gripping medical story, but it raises awareness of an obscure and difficult to diagnose neurological disease. We need all the help we can get to raise awareness of Autoimmune Encephalitis and reading this book is a great place to start. Thank you from the mother of an Autoimmune Encephalitis warrior. I work in the field of mental health with individuals who suffer with persistent metal illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar and major depression.
This book has me questioning so much, and thinking about clients who should have been tested for auto immune disorders. I'm questioning everything. I work as a care manager and one of my main goals is to facilitate communicating among providers Since reading this, I have placed an even higher value on that role. Susannah's story taught me how vital it is to not take things at face value and to encourage discussion among professionals caring for someone in the throes of a severe illness.
My Month of Madness" should be My Month of Madness" should be required reading for everyone in the health care profession- especially neurologists. Slowly, she became unable to read, to eat, to speak. Slowly, she "descended into madness", becoming violent and hallucinating. In the very beginning of her illness, my daughter-in-law, Gretchen, through research, texted me to have the doctors consider "anti-NMDA receptor autoimmune encephalitis".
At the same time, my sister-in-law, Downey, wrote to tell me of this book. None of the doctors at the first hospital had a clue about it. I requested the information about the anti NMDA receptor autoimmune encephalitis be forwarded with her records One month before Alysa's illness, a young woman was the first to be diagnosed with this disease at Chapel Hill. Working with The Mayo Clinic, doctors at CH acquired an infusion- which almost immediately reversed Alysa's psychotic symptoms!
She is still recovering and will need more infusions and therapy.
Susannah's book has not only given us insight into what was a horrific nightmare for our family, it has also validated getting a second third or fourth opinion when a patient's condition is not improving. Thank you, Susannah! I hope you have made a complete recovery by now. Cahalan makes the point that without a relentless physician, she herself would probably be now institutionalized or dead. Her unflinching self revelations are not entirely what make this account so worthwhile, though she writes without a shred of self pity or maudlin retrospection, like the very best journalists often do.
Stylistically the book bears the unmistakable mark of an accomplished journalist, and, If you are a fan of Cheryl Strayed, John Krakauer and Sebastian Junger you will love this book. Unlike Strayed, Krakauer and Junger however, whose "places" were the Pacific Crest, the Alaskan wilderness or the mountains of Afghanistan respectively, Cahalan's journey is the unfathomable complexity of human biology and psychology. It is perhaps the most daunting terrain to visit let alone report on.
She does it very well.
