Abstract

The first 93 pages of this memoir describes the ongoing mental problems of a 19-year-old bi-racial female from a small town in Iowa. The memoir recounts the routines of the mental health unit in the local hospital, friendships formed on the unit, and the doctor-patient relationship. The mindset of the mental patient is shown in detail questioning of the stigma of mental illness and the effectiveness of treatment plans. There is an historical account that provides some speculation on the source of the problem. The resolution of the issues are provided in the synopses at the end.
