Susannah Cahalan began to feel numb and notice bug bites on her left side of her body. She pushed it aside as the flu and bed bugs. She called an exterminator who found nothing.
Susannah wake up, 911 I need help!
Sunannah's writing hasn't been very strong for the passed month, so she was offered to interview John Walsh. Through out the interview Susannah came off as drunk, but very so wasn't. The interview never made the paper.
Let me out of here! Everyone is talking about me.
Calm down they're just trying to help/
Susannah is diagnosed with mono. Hmm mono makes half your body numb and act drunk? I don't think so. She even visited a few other doctors that told her she was bipolar, drinking too much, ad other absurd diagnoses
After and evening with Stephen (Susannah's boyfriend) they wake to Susannah having a seizure. Susannah wasn't eating much and actin out of place. She still can't remember the seizure from that night to this day.
The seizure was just the beginning. Susannah began to experience hallucinations and loss of speech. She had to have a team of doctors to figure out what was happening to her body and mind.
A new doctor on Susannah's case figured out what her real diagnoses is a rare autoimmune disease. In other words her brain is on fire. They figured out a cure and brought the old Susannah to her family.
