I’ve just finished reading a book by Marie Christine D’Welles. It is the disturbing story of her teenage years when she was put into mental homes and given ‘sleep cures’ because she wouldn’t conform. She wasn’t even allowed to speak to her psychiatrist. Her father had suffered from mental illness and eventually had a lobotomy. Her Grandfather paid for her to go into private homes which was the root of the problem……..money! This is a story which has disturbed my sleep.
This book hasn’t been translated into English.
