  1. Reblogged this on Notes and commented:
    Minus murder, incest, sexual diseases, tuberculosis, orphan, physically deformed, excess of opium, unmarried mother, scarlet fever, small pox, brain fever, asthma, bloody flux, quackery, dropsy, wasting disease and falling off a horse (since I never rode one), I think I qualify 90% of these reasons to be sent to an asylum just in case I was born between 1870 and 1910.
