Synopsis: Feeling physically sick and mentally depressed because of her broken engagement, Frances Deitrick decides to confront her ex-fiance. On her way to his house, she is involved in an automobile accident. Dazed and incoherent, she is taken to a local hospital. There, the doctors judge Frances emotionally ill and she is thrown into the psychiatric ward. Twice, she fights for and gains her release, only to be returned to the horrors of a modern day snake pit.

Vainly, she tries to convince those around her that she is not insane. She is not believed. Against her will, she must submit to the horrors of confinement, strip searches and physical abuse. Only during her last hospital confinement are an E.E.G. and M.R.I., the necessary medial test, finally done. These indicate that there is a physical reason for her symptoms - a rare brain tumor.

In her courageous fight back to normalcy and freedom, Frances' hazardous medical treatment comprises still another obstacle course in her attempt to rejoin society. Her ultimate recovery stands as a incentive to those who struggle against seemingly overwhelming odds to win their lives back from chaos.

From the Back Cover: Feeling sick and depressed because of her broken engagement, Frances Deitrick decides to confront her ex-fiance. On her way to his house, she is involved in an automobile accident. Dazed and incoherent, she is taken to a local hospital where doctors judge Frances emotionally ill and throw her into the psychiatric ward. Vainly, she tries to convince those around her that she is not insane. She is not believed. Frances must submit to a horrible confinement - a world of strip searches, potent drugs and physical abuse. I'm Not Crazy is the incredible story of Frances Deitrick's struggle for freedom. Her plea that her condition is not mental but a physical illness is voiced against the odds of unfeeling doctors and violent patients. Thus, Frances not only fights for freedom, but also for survival. Finally, one doctor learns of Deitrick's symptoms and tells her that she should never have been committed; she should have been admitted. Medical tests not done earlier confirm the doctor's suspicions and Frances' convictions of physical illness. The tests reveal a rare brain tumor and now Frances' courageous fight back to normalcy and freedom is jeopardized by hazardous medical treatment. Frances ultimately overcomes the debilitating obstacles in her attempt to rejoin society. Her recovery is an inspiring triumph of the human spirit over seemingly overwhelming odds.
