As in the play Blanche loves writing letters to Shep, here she loves writing the diary entry. In this diary entry I have included themes of avoiding light, fantasy, reality, bathing, alcohol, and gender roles. In this diary entry I have used some features such as nickname for example “Stella my baby and star”. As known the diary entry is personal, thus I have used formal language because Blanche used to be a teacher in Laurel and also feels that she belongs to the higher class of the society. Her Blanche is living in a standard mental asylum due to not having money
The hospital is the worst place that Alice could be because she feels awkward and discontented. She is very exposed in the hospital, as she has to learn everything again in her new body. In the hospital, Alice feels as though she is a new person. In her house, Alice felt safe and comfortable with her new body because no one can judge her in her own house. She is able to relax and become more comfortable with the changes.
In the novel, she expressed her emotions and thoughts through her poem, Taking Off. One verse states, “They say, I must be careful, to stop and think and rest. But that’s against my judgement that I use when I know best.” (Bryant, 2002, p. 71) This quote demonstrates that she was in the first stage of the identity development theory, specifically identity diffusion, created by James Marcia. Bryant had not yet made a commitment nor was she willing to try to accept any therapist's advice. A few nights when she was successful escaping out of the hospital, nurses found her sitting in her wheelchair in the middle of road, with her headphones in, unable to hear if a car was coming.
When Phoenix arrives at the medical office the attendant rudely assumes that she’s the patient until the nurse comes out. The nurse then defends Phoenix by saying “ Oh, that’s just old Aunt Phoenix,” and “ She doesn’t come for herself - she has a little grandson”. Phoenix later states “My little grandson, he sit up there in the house all wrapped up, waiting by himself,” meaning that he most likely lives with her and not his parents, who may or may not be around. This displays that Phoenix is a grandmother as she calls him her grandson, she’s willing to make a trip just for him and says “ We is the only two left in the world” showing how much she loves him. When characterizing Phoenix she could be considered struggling.
Some patients, especially Lisa, are able to hide the medicine she is supposed to take, although, in real life it is common for psychiatric nurses to make sure to do tongue checks so they are still taking their medications. Furthermore, treatment in the movie is portrayed both in realistic and non-realistic ways. Before a retired psychologist sends Susanna to the hospital, he makes it seem like hospitalization is the only option for her. The psychologist claims that she “need[s] a rest” and that she is “hurting everyone around [her].” Not only are there plenty of options for treatment, this makes it seem like the treatment is not for Susanna, but for her loved ones. Treatment
One day, a horse killed his father, who supported the family 's economy. Some days later, his mother gets a serious pneumonia. Concerned by her situation, the sick and poor woman couldn 't afford for a doctor. Therefore, she decided to call the city physician, who disliked going to that neighborhood. Rudely, the physician gave Patsy 's mother the medicine, but she was not getting better.
It killed Augustus after 8 days they planed a fake funeral “Augustus Waters died eight days after his prefuneral, at Memorial, in the ICU, when the cancer, which was made of him, finally stopped his heart, which was also made of him” (Green 223). Augustus wanted to be famous at his funeral but not a lot of people showed up and was eight empty seats. At the Funeral people were scared of touching the dead body because of how bad he died of the cancer.” When Hazel arrives at the Literal Heart of Jesus Church for Augustus’ funeral, she sits in back of the visitation room. She notices that there are about eighty chairs, but one third of them are empty. She watches people walk to his coffin, some cry, others just say something to him.
When suddenly everyone talks of having reached ‘home’ her spirits are revived but the solace is like a mirage which leaves her parched “...like a raging forest fire” (194) - it is the house of her in-laws. Rassundari is now in perpetual exile. With the Fifth Composition we are introduced to her life in the new household where she fulfils all the obligations as a housewife. However, Rassundari’s assertion that “I did everything in a spirit of duty” (194) is certainly indicative of the emotional detachment that she had to her new found calling. It was an exhaustive enterprise which left no time for her and though she repeatedly vouches for the kindness of the family that she wedded to, a deep sense of
Which led her to the secret of laughter and happiness. Furthermore, It leads to the time when she saw Alice again in black after a funeral alone in the upstairs bathroom and when she found Alice sitting alone in black suddenly she was afraid to smile back to Alice remembering how she had cut Alice off when she thought she had grown beyond her and was a better person. After Alice smiled though she spoke the narrator’s name the same way she did in the past and said “Come on in and sit with me” and for the first time ever the narrator did. Which proves that the respect and admiration she had for Alice came back after all of those
A voice that sounded much like the nurse they had seen at the doctor’s office said, “I am sorry sir but after extensive testing we were able to conclude that your wife does indeed have Alzheimer’s, we believe the best way for her to get treatment is if you check her into a nur-“ The husband of the little old lady cut her off, “No, no that’s fine. She will stay with me in our home where she is comfortable.” After he finished he hung up the phone and slammed it down on the table and started to sob. His wife of forty years was going to die from a terrible disease. He thought to himself, “Maybe I could have prevented this if I had made her go to the doctor after the fall.” He wondered if she would have even gotten this disease if it hadn’t been for him not trying harder to get her to the
