"Poor Nancy''says the nurse'' She just wasn't the same after the transorbital lobotomy it was really the only way to cure her .
& the Dr. had really no other choice.Maybe it is better to be to be happy & to have memories of nothing than to have to worry about horrible dreams & nonsense.
Oh that poor thing ,& all her demons
I guess she just could just never get over her brother in law
,cannibalizing her sister after he had gone Insane from a bad reaction to some medication of the 1940s
I heard he cut her up into little pieces & put her limbs in Zip-lock bags in the refrigerator and was feeding what was left of her to her own children.Or at least that is the rumor that I heard ,what a horrible thing to come home to.

Some treatment options existed beyond family custody and care, such as lodging the mentally ill in workhouses or checking them into general hospitals where they were frequently abandoned. The clergy also played a significant role in treating the mentally ill as “medical practice was a natural extension of ministers’ duty to relieve the afflictions of their flocks”. Private madhouses were established and run by members of the clergy to treat the mentally afflicted who could afford such care. Catholic nations regularly staffed mental health facilities with clergy, and most mentally ill individuals in Russia were housed in monasteries until asylums spread to this region of the world in the mid-1800s . To relieve mental illness, regular attendance in church had been recommended for years as well as pilgrimages to religious shrines. Priests often solaced mentally disturbed individuals by encouraging them to repent their sins and seek refuge in God’s mercy. Treatment in clergy-run facilities was a desirable alternative as the care was generally very humane, although these establishments could not treat the whole of the mentally ill population, especially as it seemed to grow in number.

In order to accommodate the burgeoning amount of mentally ill individuals, asylums were established around the world starting, most notably, from the sixteenth century onward. The first institution to open its doors in Europe is thought to be the Valencia mental hospital in Spain. Although not much is known about the treatment patients received at this particular site, asylums were notorious for the deplorable living conditions and cruel abuse endured by those admitted. For many years, asylums were not facilities aimed at helping the mentally ill achieve any sense of normalcy or otherwise overcome their illnesses. Instead, asylums were merely reformed penal institutions where the mentally ill were abandoned by relatives or sentenced by the law and faced a life of inhumane treatment, all for the sake of lifting the burden off of ashamed families and preventing any possible disturbance in the community.

The majority of asylums were staffed by gravely untrained, unqualified individuals who treated mentally ill patients like animals. A case study describes a typical scene at La Bicetre, a hospital in Paris, starting with patients shackled to the wall in dark, cramped cells. Iron cuffs and collars permitted just enough movement to allow patients to feed themselves but not enough to lie down at night, so they were forced to sleep upright. Little attention was paid to the quality of the food or whether patients were adequately fed. There were no visitors to the cell except to deliver food, and the rooms were never cleaned. Patients had to make do with a little amount of straw to cover the cold floor and were forced to sit amongst their own waste that was also never cleaned up. These conditions were not all unique to La Bicetre, and this case study paints a fairly accurate picture of a typical scene in asylums around the world from approximately the 1500s to the mid-1800s, and in some places, the early 1900s.

The most infamous asylum was located in London, England—Saint Mary of Bethlehem. This monastery-turned-asylum began admitting the mentally ill in 1547 after Henry VIII announced its transformation. The institution soon earned the nickname “Bedlam” as its horrific conditions and practices were revealed. Violent patients were put on display like sideshow freaks for the public to peek at for the price of one penny; gentler patients were put out on the streets to beg for charity

Soon after the establishment of “Bedlam,” other countries began to follow suit and founded their own mental health facilities. San Hipolito was built in Mexico 1566 and claims the title of the first asylum in the Americas. La Maison de Chareton was the first mental facility in France, founded in 1641 in a suburb of Paris. Constructed in 1784, the Lunatics’ Tower in Vienna became a showplace. The elaborately decorated round tower contained square rooms in which the staff lived. The patients were housed in the spaces between the walls of the rooms and the wall of the tower and, like at Bedlam, were put on display for public amusement

When staff did attempt to cure the patients, they followed the practices typical of the time period—purging and bloodletting, the most common. Other treatments included dousing the patient in either hot or ice-cold water to shock their minds back into a normal state. The belief that patients needed to choose rationality over insanity led to techniques aiming to intimidate. Blistering, physical restraints, threats, and straitjackets were employed to achieve this end. Powerful drugs were also administered, for example, to a hysterical patient in order to exhaust them. Around the mid-1700s, the Dutch Dr. Boerhaave invented the “gyrating chair” that became a popular tool in Europe and the United States. This instrument was intended to shake up the blood and tissues of the body to restore equilibrium, but instead resulted in rendering the patient unconscious without any recorded successes

Although cruel treatment in asylums surely felt to the patients as if it had been going on for ages, conditions began to improve in the mid-to- late 1800s as reforms were called for, and this shameful and unenlightened period was somewhat brief in relation to the span of world history. One of the earliest reforms occurred at an asylum in Devon, England. This facility had employed opium, leeches, and purges as cures for mental illness, but in the mid-1800s emphasized non-restraint methods to affect patients’ health

One of the most significant asylum reforms was introduced by Philippe Pinel in Paris. During the year of 1792, Pinel took charge of La Bicetre to test his hypothesis that mentally ill patients would improve if they were treated with kindness and consideration. Filth, noise, and abuse were eliminated quickly after patients were unchained, provided with sunny rooms, allowed to exercise freely on the asylum grounds, and were no longer treated like animals

The same reforms were undertaken around this time by an English Quaker, William Tuke. Founded in 1796, the York Retreat in York, England was run by Tuke and other Quakers who stressed the importance of treating all people with respect and compassion, even the mentally ill. In keeping faithful to this ideal, the York Retreat was a pleasant country house, modeled on a domestic lifestyle, that allowed patients to live, work, and rest in a warm and religious environment that emphasized mildness, reason, and humanity

Doctors on most occasions are said to be the people who help those who are sick or in need of medical treatment. Most doctors are seen as benevolent towards society as a whole, but maybe not by those people who need to get their routine vaccinations or routine surgical procedures

About me...

Real vampires love Vampire Rave.

I am 36 years old & I have learned a lot about myself over the years.I am not new here as you can tell & I have only a few people here,that I choose to call my friends. I tend to be perfectly normal 99% percent of the time ,But I do have my triggers,& I have been known to go from zero to Mr.Hyde in less than a half of a second.But I am usually one of the nicest people you will ever meet ,as long I get my coffee every morning that is ,It's seems that the hand I have been dealt in this life ,Is not the greatest one to say the least ,but it has made me the person I am today. My earliest memory that I can recall Is that of my father decapitating a Rooster with a shovel. It was a very mean Rooster & I guess it was just too aggressive or sick ,But It was just a Rooster ,so what so does is really matter? But moving on now.. After a few years my parents eventually divorced, & my mother and I moved to Arizona to get a away from something bad. By the Age of 13 I was living on the East side of Phoenix already In the 7 grade ,& It was a change of scenery from the rural community of some dusty town an hours drive North of Los Angeles in the Mojave Desert & It was a change of environment that was difficult to adjust to say the least. A good portion of my teenage years was spent in a Psychiatric ward ,or in a video game trying to escape reality & the world outside my window, Having to live in a environment ,where I couldn't trust anyone,& It was normal occurrence to get in fight with someone just for walking down the wrong street or looking at some the wrong way ,for more than a few seconds, or even wearing the wrong colors. I've never been the violent type ,so I usually avoid conflict and drama. I don't care what people think of me & ,I can really care less if somebody dislikes me. And I have no need to feel accepted for being anything other than myself. I wasn't intending to write a autobiography here but only wanted to give you a glimpse to the person behind the profile.

Music

I like all types of music Jazz/Blues Classic rock ,Modern rock
& alternative music like punk/grunge ,I do like most Metal bands but I gravitate more toward older sounding bands like Black Sabbath ,Iron maiden,
Judas Priest ,& the N,W,O,B,H,M (new wave of British heavy metal)
of the late 70s & early 80s

Real vampires love Vampire Rave.
Feel free to add me but if you do please say something so that I can return the favor ,but doing so doesn't not mean I will rate you 10 ,I have biting turned of on both my accounts
& blasting is turned off as well
How I rate your profile... 10s are not handed out & I rate according to the effort you put into your profile .So if you have one sentence on your profile & you have been on V.R longer than 1 month,you will most likely not be seeing a 10 from me on your dashboard.
