Scope and Contents

'This woman has periodic outbreaks when she is really mental. She gets forgetful, forgets what she has gone to the shops for, forgets to come back. Has had some difficult pregnancies. Rough farmhouse, not very clean, not overcrowded. Bad outlook, some rows. [Female informant] - always going into rages about nothing - someone might do something to her children. You might meet her fifty times and she will not look at you, then she would start talking and you wouldn't be able to get rid of her. Nurse says this woman becomes outrageous and unmanagable at times. House is an awful den. PAO confirms - She leaves her man for a few days then writes to him for money and he doesn't send her any.'
