    Weirdly Self-Indulgent

    For quite a bit of the book, I genuinely thought the author was faking her illness. When she mentions the Southern expression--the 'blue devils', I think it was--which captures the notion of a young woman falling into self-perpetuating tantrums a la "The Crucible", I thought at first she'd given the game away. However, the presence of Dr. Nahjar and the critical response both to his diagnosis and to her NY Post article convinced me differently. Still, her refusal to follow through with group sessions and her fixation on how she looked after it all and how others looked at her (including the odd recounting of the lawn man ogling her) feels weirdly self-indulgent and, without much effort, I could be brought back to the idea that a lot of her condition was acted out, escaping, as she was, job failure and a hoarder lifestyle at the time it all began.

    Incredible!

    I truly couldn't put this work down... from the very beginning to the very last page I flipped through! I hope more people read this novel and understand the importance of health as being actual wealth.

    The story line so far makes me think of the TV show" House'.

    Couldn't put it down

    I found this book amazing. I couldn't put it down. A true story of survival and courage for both Susannah and her family.
