Discussing everything from heinous Bedlum asylum history, such as allowing people to pay admission to walk through and watch chained *patients* be beaten and to marvel at others’ screaming at inner demons (guess after that the attendees went and had dinner at a fabulous restaurant) to ice-pick lobotomies (took 5-10 mins) to Rosemary Kennedy (park her elsewhere; she’ll be fine).
I often think, “There but for the grace of God, go I,” and I tremble a bit while feeling the tiny hairs on the back of my neck stand up, wondering if in sixty years, people will read about things done to me, things done to my son, and use the word barbaric.
God help and bless us, gang. Let’s discuss when/if we wish. Let’s take care of each other. Let’s take care of ourselves. 💙🙏💛✌
