People used to believe that if you were mentally ill, or you suffered from epilepsy you were possessed by demons:
So they locked those poor souls away to live their lives in torment and despair.
And I used to think and wonder- who could do that to a person? Who could take a someone who can’t fend for themselves and scare them every single day and night for the rest of their lives?
It would definitely take somebody who is evil…possessed by it one might say.
