The Woman Who Lost Her Mind For a Month
Journalist Susannah Cahalan believed she was descending into madness after suffering unexplained hallucinations, paranoia, and panic attacks, followed by a slew of physical symptoms, including migraines, rashes, and seizures. She tells Jeff about the myriad of tests she underwent to figure out what was going on, and how one simple test, involving a piece of paper and a pen, finally helped a doctor diagnose her illness. Susannah shares her story of recovery from this rare and frightening disease, and her boyfriend Stephen joins the conversation to explain why he chose to stay by her side during the most trying of circumstances. Then, meet a young woman whose life was forever changed by Susannah. Plus, special guest Yvette Nicole Brown ("Community") joins Jeff for a conversation about losing your memory and living on Facebook. And a ukulele player steps up to the challenge during "Entertain Us."
