It's All in Your Head: True Stories of Imaginary Illness
It's All in Your Head, by Suzanne O’Sullivan, 3
Chatto & Windus
The full quote/excerpt
Blushing occurs when the blood vessels of the head and neck dilate and become infused with blood. It is an instantaneous physical change seen on the surface but reflecting a feeling of embarrassment or happiness that is held inside. When it happens I can’t control it. That point is important. My blushes betray a feeling and, even when they increase my embarrassment, I cannot stop them.
