reviews atPeople ask, how did you get in there What they really want to know is if they are likely to end up in there as well I can t answer the real question All I can tell them is, it s easyBoy was it ever easy for Susanna Kaysen to end up in a psychiatric hospital Now, Susanna was not normal per se She randomly obsessed about things as bizarre as whether or not she actually had bones in her body since she couldn t see them and was battling depression that at one point led her to down 50 aspirin She most definitely needed some help But in the 1960s the form of help provided to young girls like Susanna was a long term stay in the local looney bin where the Thorazine flowed like water and electric shock therapy was a sure fire cure for crazy Although compact and a very fast read, Girl Interrupted is a haunting story tha I m sort of at a loss for how to describe this book and the emotions it provoked within me I guess the best word I could use is unsettled , but probably not for the reason you would imagine This quote might shed some light on what I meanThe less likely a terrible thing is to happen, the less frightening it is to look at or imagine A person who doesn t talk to herself or stare into nothingness is therefore alarming than a person who does Someone who acts normal raises the uncomfortable question, What s keeping me out of the loony binPrecisely This story is told not from the perspective of someone who sees creatures lurking in the shadows, or is convinced that she is the girlfriend of a Martian, or is blinded by homicidal rage, but by a young woman fully self aware of her own shortcomings Everything is made of language In the morning you hear those damned birdies tweedlydee tweedlydoo to each other or some damned cats meowing but that s not language It may be communication but it has no grammar and it can only describe the here and now the hear and know The birdies are tweebing about the cats, look there s a kitty cat watch out and the cats are meowing about the birdies I see a lot of edible things in trees and it doesn t get much interesting than that They will never write a novel Whereas humans are the opposite, they almost never talk about the here and now It s always I m sure this wasn t as expensive as last time we were here or you have to get your suit cleaned for next week Human language is a really dangerous device, it s explosive, becau After reading novels like One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest or The Bell Jar, one could be forgiven for feeling skeptical about the treatment for the mentally ill during the 1960 s I m not sure Susanna Kaysen s memoir will change that much In 1967, after a short interview with a psychiatrist, she was admitted, committed may be a better word , to a mental hospital in Massachusetts, the same one that treated Sylvia Plath Her stay lasted about 2 years She was told she had a character disorder Twenty five years later, after reading her hospital records, she learned she was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder This memoir is her recollection of the time she spent, the treatment she received, the doctors and nurses who treated her, and the other patients around her For those of us who are not personally familiar with these type of histories and institutions, this is an eye op Today, you seem puzzled about something Of course I was sad and puzzled, I was eighteen, it was spring, and I was behind barsKind of sheds light on the whole system of mental asylums, doesn t it Anyway how do you know if the treatment of a mentally disordered person is working You won t take their word for it, and if they question the institution, than you can claim and actually genuinely believe that you are suffering from persecution complex That is the trouble they have a big word for everything which makes you think of it as a disease If you are too moody, you have bipolar disease if you are too sad, you are depressed if you are too happy, you are suffering from euphoria You can t do anything out of proportion or rules in t Girl, Interrupted, Susanna KaysenGirl, Interrupted is 1993 memoir by American author Susanna Kaysen In April 1967, 18 year old Susanna Kaysen is admitted to McLean Hospital, in Belmont, Massachusetts, after attempting suicide by overdosing on pills She denies that it was a suicide attempt to a psychiatrist, who suggests she take time
