It might be just me, or maybe other people feel the same way… but, I find metal illness to be immensely interesting. I cannot really tell you why, but I really enjoy learning about how the mind works… not only about behavior, but also actual brain injury.
Did you know that some parasites and viruses can cause the same symptoms as some mental disorders? Or that a head injury can make you loose your ability to control your anger? Or make you start talking backwards?
How can you not think that’s insanely interesting!¡?
That’s why I decided i had to read Brain On Fire by Susannah Cahalan when I saw it on the shelf.
