Brain on Fire: my month of madness  by Susannah Cahalan

Cahalan, a New York Post reporter, chronicles her sudden bout with bizarre symptoms and behavior initially diagnosed as due to a gamut of psychiatric and physical illnesses.  She reports on how a newly identified rare autoimmune disease (anti-NMDA-receptor autoimmuneencephalitis) was ultimately determined to be the cause, her doctors' search for the cause, her slow recovery, and her attempt to understand this "lost" period in her life.
