Being in the medical field I don't find anything creepy or dementing about someone being done ECT(Electroshock Therapy) on. If she was a subject to early tests she would've probably not been in a lot of pain since people who do get ECT are the ones who have psychotic disorders only. Probably would've just felt discomfort because she may not had a muscle relaxant before the procedure, or may have had bad experience with not being able to control gag reflex, but nothing deadly if within a professional's care.

You don't do ECT on a normal person unless you're a sadistic doctor! And unless the hospital was a cult shop of some sort, the procedure would've not been done in the first place. I've seen ECT first-hand myself and it only appears to people like torture since yeah you do use electricity on the person but the amount of time the electricity is used isn't even enough to kill anybody, takes less than 5 seconds. When ECT doesn't produce results, it just means she still suffers the same psychotic disorder before she was subjected to it. But anybody who goes under ECT usually gets the treatment more than once in their lifetime.

But the hospital being eerie, I feel you there. I did my student internship on a hospital where it was said that a lot patients died, due to normal illnesses and stuff. But every single damn day I went there and worked for 8 hours I always felt like someone was watching me despite all the people around me. I've never tried doing night shift when I was there but something about hospitals even as a medical professional creeps the hell out of me.

All true. And I knew someone who was cured of bipolarity with ECT, although they did have gaps in their memory afterwards...

Bipolarity?  You mean Bi polar disorder?  There is no cure.

My bad, didn't catch that. It was an experimental treatment. Theres a memoir about it, and the side effects it caused in this person was to lose sense of time and gaps in memory. It didn't work for all and was painful. I can't for the likes of me remember the title. The main character was a woman who suffered bi polarity and went wild for guys with green eyes and was suicidal many times. She had a father who hated her for having to take drugs to control the disorder and called her a drug addict which only made the condition worse. He was also mad at her for not being a lawyer even though he paid her classes at Princeton. The book had the edges of its pages look slightly torn. Anyone know what book this is?

So you knew this person or read the memoir?  And the correct term is Bi-polar disorder.  Just so  you know.   :tu:

No, I read the memoir. She had a Book sign. I cant remember the title or author, but I can practically narrate the whole story back to someone. I hate it when that happens.
Im just no good with names, but perfect with data.

I live in Mansfield Mass, the next town over. I have heard about this place, and yes, was alway creepy to drive by and look at.

I drive a tractor trailer locally, and had a delivery there at the very beginning of restorations. I pulled my rig between two buildings, and the hair was standing full up on my arms, and would not go away. I made arrangements to deliver the construction materials in the contractor office, and the guy seemed cool. I asked him if he has ever experienced anything funky around here, and he said a flat out "no". I showed him the hair on my arms, on a 90 degree day, and said, "Dude, this place is completely haunted." He saw the hair standing straight up, and told me, the night guard was scared sh!tless the first couple of weeks, and would be petrified in the morning at the end of his shift. The night guy told him, he spent his nights investigating talking, screaming, banging noises, and there was never anyone there. I had mixed feelings about the place. I wanted to get the hell out, but would have loved to hung around, but time was not on my side, I had other deliveries to do that day.

I had been back there for several more deliveries in the course of construction, still feeling very spooked, and anyone I would ask in passing, all agreed, the place was creepy.

The last delivery I made there, was in 2010, to a company that had leased an office. I brought in some boxes to the front lobby, and I asked the girl behind the desk that I had previously spoke to, if anyone has seen anything creepy since moving in. She looked at me and said, "It is company policy not to talk about it." Then she said in a lower voice, "Alot of us have seen a woman in a robe walking up those stairs quite often" I just said, "Yyyyup" I don't run the Foxboro area anymore, kinda miss that delivery.

Interesting account, to the OP. It sort of reminded me of a feeling I had when I saw this abandoned school.

I was up in Hendersonville, NC a month or two ago, and my ex decided to show me an abandoned schoolhouse that was by his friend's house-at night time.  :unsure2: Apparently, some girl had been killed there years ago and it was haunted. Anyway, We turned the corner of the trees to get a look, and it was just a small two story bricked schoolhouse-rather small compared to schools built these days. I got this horrible sense of dread and felt like I was going to pass out, so I sprinted back to his friend's house.

:rolleyes:

A lot of lost souls must still be in that place forever enduring their captivity and madness.

Ashe Romeo I worked at Foxboro state hospital after it became part of Wrentham state school, I started in 1986 and went over to the Wrentham campus in 1991 when Dexter closed. I worked in the Dexter building which was across the street from the building that is now the condos. The building is now gone and there are stores where it was, a few years ago my hubby (he also worked there) and I took a ride by to see if the area had changed any. I didn't really get a creppy feeling in Dexter building but every now and we had to bring the clients (they were all mentaly handicapped) over to one of the other buildings that didn't have any living in it, but had a big open room so they could dance. We had to bring them thru the tunnels which connected all the buildings underground. Off the tunnels there were rooms where they did EST. There was also a room where they put dead people until they could bury them it must have been really smelly because there was no refrigeration. They also did experiments on the clients one that I know about was the tested the use of flouride on them before they started using it in toothpaste and drinking water. I don't dought that people died from some of these experiments. One thing I would not do the whole time I worked there was go thru the tunnels my self, I had to have another staff person with me and the whole time we were down in them we felt like we were being watched, and every now and then we would hear doors open or close and no one else was down there,
