Well, my mom sent me there ’cause I’d be what she’d call “inconsolable”. I’d get so upset that I’d act out and nobody could reach me or force me to calm down.
So, it was that or meds. Nowadays the teachers would’ve just recommended meds, but since there were fewer meds back then, she took matters into her own hands. I’m glad too. It would suck to have been on medicine for 33 yrs. I was lucky.
glad my mom was a health nut. Oddly enough, had a good, regular respectable job. Her dream was “Frontier Woman” with the ranch and the horses and stuff but she did what she could in our suburban house.
