There is a lot of information at this site so it's well worth visiting.
The Emily Rose movie is based on a real person and real happenings.
I'll post a short excerpt. Ya'll can read it and then we can chat
about what you all think. I found it interesting.
So .. was she in need of an excorsism, a psychologist,
a medical doctor, new parents, all four ....?
Emily Rose is actually Anneliese Michel. From her birth on the 21st of
September, 1952, Anneliese Michel enjoyed the life of a normal, religiously
nurtured young girl. Without warning, her life changed on a day in 1968
when she began shaking and found she was unable to control her body.
She could not call out for her parents, Josef and Anna, or any of her 3
sisters. A neurologist at the Psychiatric Clinic Wurzburg diagnosed her
with "Grand Mal" epilepsy. Because of the strength of the epileptic fits, and
the severity of the depression that followed, Anneliese was admitted for
treatment at the hospital.
Soon after the attacks began, Anneliese started seeing devilish grimaces
during her daily praying. It was the fall of 1970, and while the young
people of the world were enjoying the liberal freedoms of the time,
Anneliese was battling with the belief that she was possessed. It seemed
there was no other explanation for the appearance of devilish visions
during her prayers. Voices also began following her, saying Anneliese
will "stew in hell". She mentioned the "demons" to the doctors only once,
explaining that they have started to give her orders. The doctors seem
unable to help, and Anneliese lost hope that medicine was going to be
able to cure her.
Because the site says - All content is Copyright

can quote for you.
