In this post, we will take a walk through an abandoned insane asylum. Abandoned asylums must be the spookiest type of buildings to visit. In the past, I have spent time visiting within the walls of an asylum that was still operating and that was unsettling enough.
The unsettling and spooky feeling likely comes from the combination of the asylum architecture and the mental illnesses that the patients experience.
I admire the professionals that work with and help the patients and I admire the strength of those that suffer from mental illness and have to deal with not only the symptoms but the societal stigma and judgement that comes with their illness.
