it was amazing

I read this a long time ago but I remember loving it. It was a great account of mental illness back when the medicines we have now weren't available yet. I remember reading about the way they would calm down patients is to cold pack. They would wrap them in ice cold towels. The reason was because their body would be fighting so hard to keep them warm that they would calm down. However if they weren't calm after one session then they would unwrap them and re wrap them and do it again.
