    Brave and beautiful5

    Librarian Lavender This is a true story. Susannah thinks she has bedbugs and she feels strangely detached from situations in her life, that's how it begins. The situation is rapidly getting worse. When she finally ends up in the hospital after several seizures having hardly anything of her old self left nobody knows what's happening to her. Until she finds a doctor who will do anything to find out. She has a rare condition and needs treatment for many months. The recovery being the hardest part of her illness.
    Susannah Cahalan describes such a difficult time in her life with an admiringly openness and honesty. She isn't afraid to share her most vulnerable memories to show what she's been through and to make others aware of her condition. That is beautiful. She's a journalist who had to dig into her own life to get to the truth about her month in the hospital, because she had no memory of that time. Her family and close friends helped as well as they could. It all resulted in this amazing book. Her illness was terrible and she had to rediscover her whole personality. Yet, she did everything she could to beat the disease, she is remarkably strong and because of her many other people have been helped. Besides that she's a great writer. I wanted to know what happened to her and couldn't put this book away. It's a must read for everyone. by Librarian Lavender
