The Lobotomist

Yesterday I watched this thought provoking documentry about Dr. Walter Freeman the man who essientally pioneered the Lobotamy. It was thought to be a cure for every metal illness from disobdience in children to more sevre personality disorders.

A crude procedure, with untold results dramaticlly effected the pateints personality and mental well being for better or worse.

This documentry all highlights the struggles of the mentally ill in yester-years and how in a desparate situation people are willing to try anything if its a means to helping someone escape.
