"I normally don't read non-fiction but there are so many things I want to say about this book. First, I want to stand united with everyone on this blue ball and say how important health care is. Mental health = health. Second, as a woman, I want to support those in the past who have been swept under the rug and labeled "troubled" for demanding help. Third, to stress how important it is to always ask for a second opinion. If I hadn't done so shortly after my husband and I were married, a doctor would have taken my husbands leg (A story for another time). If you haven't read Brain on Fire or just don't like non-fiction, I urge you to read or listen to this amazing story of one woman's struggle for something no person should have to fight for... To get good health care." -- Jill Sanders
