The author suffered a violent seizure from the neck down while giving a speech, and afterwards she`s found herself a victim of the shudders again and again. In this book she`s taking a journey into contemporary psychiatry, neurology and psychoanalysis to find out more about her condition, and in a synthesis of personal experience and extensive research she illuminates the dilemma of the mental and the physical, and what it means to be human.
