Med Head: My Knock-Down Drag-Out Drugged-Up Battle with My Brain

What if your life was an agonizing medical mystery?

Rejected by peers, misunderstood by adults, and dangerous to himself, Cory's life has been a living hell. Confounding every doctor's analysis, he endures countless combinations of medications in wildly varying doses that only complicate the turmoil. Cory and his family are determined to reverse a downward spiral and survive against all odds --- even when those odds are constantly stacked against them.

Bestselling author James Patterson brings to life the true story of one teenager’s intense struggle with Tourette’s Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, even alcohol addiction. Cory’s story is one of extraordinary perseverance and a reminder that, no matter how rough the road may seem, courage is never pointless and triumph is always possible.
