Pulled Her Eyes Out With Her Fingers
A neuropsychiatrist’s son recalled a terrifying story his mother had told him about working in a psych ward during grad school. While making routine room checks, she came across a terrifying scene.
She turned the corner to see a staff member’s body on the floor, his legs halfway out the door. She went into the patient room and found a young woman with “severe postpartum psychiatric disorder” sitting on the floor with her gouged out eyeballs in her hands.
The staff member lying on the floor had apparently had a heart attack when he came across the mental health patient injuring herself. The creepiest part? The neuropsychiatrist called for help, and as the staff rushed in to help, the woman just sat there looking tranquil and holding her eyes in her hands.
