Went to an outdoor museum in Sussex, England. One exhibit had all kinds of medical instruments from the end of the 1800s.
Being nervous was no fun in those days.
Although they did seem to know how to relax…

Uh — really it’s unseemly for a woman of my advanced years to laugh so hard (written after I picked myself up off the floor) ;>)

Yes there was less parading of one’s neurosis back then. No wonder.

LadyFi: Talk about medical advances, they used to bleed people who were sick. That was a great idea.
