The Story of Selina Aylot

By 1908, life started to fall apart for Selina Aylott, she had been carrying a lot of pain from times passed and wasn’t the strongest of people to deal with such burdens. I guess these feelings ate away at her slowly, and off cause times were different then and the understanding of mental health low in comparison to what it is today. Her daughter’s father-in-law, William Reubon Plaskett was categorised as insane and had for the longest time been a patient of a Mental Institution. The thought of ending up in a place like this would have been unimaginable to Selina. Although deep down she knew she needed help but had no one to turn too. Sometimes when the pain gets hard, you can begin to take things out on your loved ones, or self-harm in one way or another.
