Glore Psychiatric Museum or... why I'm glad I'm not THAT crazy



Took part of my day off to visit Glore Psychiatric Museum. It was really strange/interesting to see how "normal" people deal with the "crazy" people. Of course, there are those that genuinely need treatment, but some of the things I saw here made me cringe. See the photo with all the writing? That's a huge blanket stitched with the ramblings of a schizophrenic patient. If you look closely you can read some of the things on it. Definitely worth the $2 to visit this place if you get the chance. Humans are much more complicated creatures than we care to realize sometimes.
