It's time to tell it like it is = John Morrison should be a patient at a
mental facility, his comments are sooo absurd, his comments are too often and his comments should be ignored!!!

I agree with Paul, John Morrison should not be allowed to make comments, he lives in a different world altogether.

PAUL and mark s are obvious sock-puppets of the same troll. And Beans Burritto wants to tear down every structure in the County. Consider the sources.

Ami, I guess you haven't been back to this site yet. I hope you do soon. I'm really excited about connecting with you again after all this time. Just curious. Why did you decide to look me up now after 40yrs? I'm really glad you did! I called Donna and told her about your post. She'd love to hear from you too. We've mentioned you a lot over the years, so much so that my oldest son says he's tired of hearing about, LOL. What do you do for a living these days? Did you ever finish college? I hope so. I went back when I was 30. I have two degrees now. I'm a teacher.

I have searched for you--twenty years ago, wrote long letter mailed it to 'cuse, and two years ago, spoke to a woman in cuse, who said that her name was ALETA!-------just read thru 42 pages of 'old marcy', and I think that you are AMAZING, but I always knew that. I do not know if you recall, but I too was incarcerated in a Marcy-like place during my teen years, which was a disposal locale for unwanted teens.---------How is Donna? will try to get back on line soon.

JaneDear, I've had the pleasure of interacting with some of these children, most of whom are now approaching their 60s, if not there already.:)

I am frequently impressed with the way they became productive adults, parents, and members of their communities. I'm also gratified the state institutions have become relics of the past.

Not sure what you mean by an alternate mode. My number is a landline number and IS active. Are you sure you copied it down correctly?

I heard back from Lucy Winer. She wants to know what facility/ward you were on to see if that jogs her memory. She says that that time was a blur, but she does remember there being other teenage girls in other areas. On the Kings Park website, it says that Kings Park was located in Long Island. You said you were in a facility in Connecticut. How would you have known her?

I was a nursing student at Marcy from Aug 1970 to Dec 1970, I was told not to return after Christmas break because I was a disruptive influence. During that short time I was only allowed to work on the Med Surg ward learning how to take BP, pulse give shots etc. The disruption I caused was because I would speak up about patient care, get in trouble and go down to Marcy Tavern to drink because I just knew that people should not be treated this way, but was told that I was not a Dr. and could not question what was done. I never saw the living facilities for patients other than on the med surg ward. Which was split between men and women. One incident I remember clearly was a little boy probably about 8 with a broken leg who was on the men's side and kept coming over to the women's side. When I would try to interact with him to find out what he wanted I was told not to speak to him, just call over and have someone come get him. He would hide when the orderly would come over and grab on to whatever he could and hang on for dear life. I spoke up that there had to be a reason he did not want to go back, and we needed to find out what it was. I was told he was a troublemaker and a liar. I was sent off the ward more than once for trying to talk to him. I wish I had done more but to be honest I was a very immature protected 18 and did not really know better.
