Nearly eight of her first ten years of being an adult in the 1940's were spent in the back wards of mental hospitals, struggling to defend a frail sense of self against the ugly diagnoses and even uglier treatment of an uncomprehending psychiatric profession. The shy teenager has grown into an acutely sensitive young woman, who retains a devasting truthfulness about herself.
