I’ve started watching Downton Abby and find myself pulled into the time. My old fashion ideas would fit nicely there but I’m afraid that like so many women I would not have survived childbirth. If my childhood had allowed me to even get to that age – medicines and the practices of the time could not have saved me and I know that during that era many were without the understanding of mental illness as we know it today. Think how much has changed in the last 100 year.
(I’m only on season 4 so don’t tell me how it ends.)
