The previous scene is an excerpt from "Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness," and just one of many hallucinations Susannah Cahalan experienced in 2009 during her month-long hospital stay, in which she was diagnosed with a rare neurological autoimmune disease, known as anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis.
