She then entered the controversial treatment in a sanitarium in philadelphia” (Gilman Society). The biography of Charlotte Perkins Gilman shows the hard times she had to go through. The short story, The Yellow Wallpaper is a story about what she went through. She went to a sanitarium just like
Throughout the movie she is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. That basically meant that she had disorder that impacted the way she thought and felt about herself. Susanna went on basically hatting the mental hospital like she was forced to be there.

I found this movie interesting because I agree with what the film implied on how all patient share a commonality called vulnerability. In the movie Wit, you are allowed a peek into the medical world that shows disregard for humanity. The film revolves around an English professor, Vivian Bearing, being diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer, the treatment, and how her professional status is taken away for being a patient. A major theme of this movie is dependency on others by chronicling Vivian 's trial treatment and it allows the viewers a peek into the world of a patient dying from cancer. After watching the film, I noticed that there were a lot of significant moral issues, which correlates with the nursing profession.
In the beginning of the film, Doctor Kelekian speaks to Vivian in medical terms as if she knows them. Although Ms. Bearing is a doctor in Philosophy, this doesn’t imply that she knows the terms that Dr. Kelekian was speaking about. Vivian didn’t want Dr. Kelekian to know that she didn’t understand some of the things that he was saying. Later in the film, she regrets not asking questions before the research treatment started.
One of my first mentors was a medical doctor and a professor, Dr. Lee. I thought doctors only focused on Medicine. Yet, Dr. Lee took each shadowing opportunity to teach either a medical school student, or myself, making sure we learned about any diagnosis or disease she gave. In a similar way. She also taught her patients about the disease they had so that they could better understand.
