Accidental shock.

Shocked is how I felt reading this, when, indeed, the topic I had searched for was "insulin shock therapy."

Mel needed a picture of some electro-shock therapy that was formerly used as a convention of treating the mentally ill, so I hopped online and did a search.

I came up with pictures. You can look at them yourself. I'm not posting them...

Also interesting, however, is an article I stumbled across in search of the horrifying photos. It's about the Dixmont State Hospital, and the history of its slow demise from a place of rest for Civil War veterans and alcoholics to an eerie, supposedly haunted property here in Western Pennsylvania.

They want to level it and turn it into a Wal*Mart. (What a surprise.)
