A bitter-sweet ending, that’s how I see it as well. Of course it would have been easy for Sacks to give the essay a happy ending. Christina went through hell but got out of there. He could have admired her and her struggle with her limitations and the readers would have easily accepted it. Instead, he preferred to show her life was it was – tolerable, sometimes pleasant and rewarding, but also misreable.
