Mary-Ann Compton has been held at Sheppard Pratt Psychiatric Hospital in Havre de Grace for the last four and a half months, after it became clear that in-home treatment wouldn't help her PTSD or catatonia. She has been kept there under the watchful eye of countless physicians and psychiatrists, never saying a word.

I'm not sure what to do here. Do I give in and go, or do I stay out of it? I know what's smart is to stay away from her, but is that what's right? She witnessed the deaths of her husband and friends, and came out alive. Nothing about her makes sense, yet she's a survivor. She's a survivor like me.

To clarify the rambling, Craig called me just now. Yesterday, Mary-Ann Compton started talking.

And she's asking for me.


  1. If she's asking for you, I'd say go. But I tend to be a bit dumb with my curiosity.

  2. If it means answers...

    But I'd be on your guard.

  3. I'd say go. If nothing else it might give her some peace.

  4. Go for it. :]

    I believe she needs a friend now more than ever.

  5. Go, talk to her. At the very least, you may bring peace to a troubled mind.

  6. I agree with Baibre, I am also stupidly curious. Curious kitten solidarity!
