Starting today I’ll be posting 86 reasons why you may have found yourself committed to an asylum back in the late 1800s. This timeframe is a bit earlier than my novel The Bird Box but many of the reasons would have still been used as legitimate criteria for commital.
Let me know when you think you may have been escorted through the gates to join Jakie and the rest of the characters in The Bird Box.
Reason # 1 – Intemperance and Business Trouble
These two problems were listed together so I’m assuming you had to be presenting both at the same time in order to be committed for this one. Had a bad day at work? Might want to think twice about snuggling up with a glass of wine once you get home.
