Jenny bravely tells her story of how her experience of Anti-NMDAR encephalitis has devastated her life.

Like in the film version of Susannah Cahalan's best-selling memoir Brain on Fire, Jenny’s doctors thought she was suffering from anxiety. She started acting oddly but no one believed there was anything wrong until she “went crazy” and ended up being wrongly admitted to a psychiatric ward.

Brain on Fire is a powerful film, Jenny’s story is equally as powerful as it’s real and told from the heart.
