I watched a programme on tv last night, I forget what channel it was on. It was called "disabled & disowned" It was mainly about the care system in the past, & there were interviews with people who`d been treated appallingly by the system. There was one woman who talked about how she was drugged senseless by staff at a secure childrens home when she was a teenager. It brought back bad memories of my time in an adolescent unit in the 60`s, where if kids didn`t behave, the staff would knock them out with large doses of Largactil, a drug which is intended for use in violent schizophrenics & other pschycotic patients. It just goes to show how children are regarded in this country, objects to be seen & not heard.
