GY: And the other interesting case was a young lady -- well, maybe she was about sixteen, seventeen years old -- and all she did was sit at the side of the bed just like this, all day long. I guess -- is the word catatonic, without any emotion? Said nothing. Expression did not change. Kind of like this. Obviously, a mental state, some dementia of some sort. And I was curious what had caused this. Apparently she, I don't know if it was something that happened before she came. We thought perhaps if we came before, that she would have been put into a different institution. Maybe it happened in the process of moving. Maybe. I really don't know. But eventually she was removed from her bed.
