In decades and centuries past, illness both physical and mental was often treated in ineffective, inhumane and often destructive ways in old insane asylums. People with psychological conditions, especially, tended to be viewed as subhuman. These unfortunate souls were born in the wrong era, and their stories are heartbreaking. *********************************************************************** -Music: Kevin MacLeod ~ Day of Chaos -Music Download Link: https://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1300040 ***********************************************************************
