Tasca, Rapetti, Carta, and Fadda (2012) wrote about hysteria and the role it played in the mental health of women. The authors noted that hysteria “was cured with herbs, sex or sexual abstinence, punished and purified with fire for its association with sorcery and finally, clinically studied as a disease and treated with innovative therapies.” (Tasca, Rapetti, Carta, & Fadda, 2012, p.110).
Study / library with Joe's desk. In front of Bays My interior designer has advised that we should paint the built in bookcases the same color as the walls. I envision our room looking somewhat like this--at least as far as the color and walls go. We have wood floors and an area rug that is more colorful than this carpet/rug.
