Reasons to be cheerful.
My niece sent me this comprehensive list of conditions that would be reasons for admission to a Lunatic Asylum in the late 19th Century.
She thought of me when she saw it.....I know I am inclined to have dissipation of the nerves, uterine derangement, brain fever, time of life, women's trouble, occasional gathering in the head and feebleness of mind and much more but I have never been a decoy in the army, shot my daughter or been kicked in the head by a horse.....yet.
