We see this disorder within Joan during the movie when she is cutting Greg out of all her pictures. This is because she does not want people to see her with a negative influence. Finally, the disorder that displayed is bipolar, which is a mood disorder in which a person alternates between hopelessness and lethargy of depression and the overexcited state of mania (p. 520). This disorder is portrayed when Joan Crawford is really calm and becomes the opposite and is freaking out on Christina because of the wire hangers within her
She also felt that something had entered her daughter and feared it would end up killing her daughter. Mrs. Putnam mentioned that she believed her daughter and Betty had both not been sick, but instead called it “the Devil’s touch” which is “heavier than death” according to her (Miller 917). Others began to hear about the girls being touched by the Devil, leading to a mass paranoia among those in Salem, in fear the Devil would come after them. The young girls, Betty and Ruth, created a paranoia throughout Salem by simply acting extremely sick, leading to a conclusion that they had been touched by the Devil,
The first time is when Laura is at the hotel reading Mr. Dalloway because she is disgusted of taking care Richie. For example, she thinks that “[I] can decide to die… [I] can leave them all behind—[my] child and [my] husband and Kitty, [my] parents, everybody” (152) in the middle of reading. This quote suggests that Laura is considering committing suicide in order to escape from her problems, such as the isolation from her family and the homosexual relationship with Kitty. The second time is when Virginia cannot bear her mental illness anymore. For instance, in the letter for Leonard, she says “I feel certain that I am going mad again: I feel we cannot go through another of these terrible times.

She has an aborting and later finds out that she can no longer bear any children with Tom. The transformation of her personality following the aborting and her increasing mental instability shows the fragility of the human mind. Swift shows us that fragility through Mary’s guilt. The beginning of her madness starts when Dick kills Freddie, because Mary told him that Freddie impregnated her. Later when she finally realizes the harm that her manipulating can do Tom says: “Curiosity’s gone…seems three years older than me, as if she’s become a hard featured woman with a past.” This transformation in her personality marks the beginning of her insanity, but her madness isn’t evident after Freddie’s death.
Kristina has been traumatized by the abuse she witnessed in her home when she was just a child, Which explains her condition today. She is not in control of her actions in this state and is a danger to herself and others as you can see in the movie starting 1:17:13 she’s pointing the gun at the granddaughter.

Although we don’t know who Jane is, but it is most likely the narrator because she freed herself from John and her domestic self.
MEDEA: THE ABANDONED “…You must know the stress and fear I have being unable to offer even water to my children” (Eripides, 2015, p.27) To be able to analyze Medea’s motives in the play, one must understand the biological and psychological reasons leading to altruistic infanticide. According to Sara G. West, a Doctor from the Department of Psychiatry in Ohio, Altruistic filicide is defined as the crime where parents kill their children because either the world is too cruel for them or because they are suffering from an incurable disease (West, 2015, Para.10). It is not easy to analyze altruistic infanticide due to its antithetical nature. It is antithetical because murder is considered a horrible act born out of hatred yet the reason behind
She stayed in her room as her husband told her because she believed her husband only wanted what was “best” for her.
