Demon Possession and Mental Illness
ver the course of around 8-10 yrs we had a client that came into the facility for lengthy stays. With many attempts and failed home visits she continue to stay in the confines of the walls. She was a tall slender young female with a babyish childs voice. Who dressed neat an took care of her personal hygiene…until she got sick. At first the staff related her odd an unusual behavior on her menses, then noticed her mothers visits seem to trigger an out burst. The out burst became so severe she was even sent to another facility to be observed for attention seeking behavior – she returned with a diagnose that read she could control her behavior at will. The staff who worked with her felt a little differently.
