Loud in the House of Myself: Memoir of a Strange Girl (original 2012; edition 2011)
Loud in the House of Myself: Memoir of a Strange Girl by Stacy Pershall (2012)
Stacy Pershall grew up depressed and too smart for her own good, a deeply strange girl in Prairie Grove, Arkansas (population 1,000), where the prevailing wisdom was that Jesus healed all. From her days as a thirteen-year-old Jesus freak, through a battle with anorexia and bulimia, her first manic episode at eighteen, and the eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, this spirited and at times mordantly funny memoir chronicles Pershall's journey through hell-several breakdowns and suicide attempts and her struggle with the mental health care system.
