Also, the author of the book “The Yellow Wallpaper” Charlotte Perkins Gilman stated “ I wrote the yellow wallpaper with its embellishments and additions to carry out the ideal…and sent a copy to the physician who so nearly drove me mad...it has to my knowledge saved one woman from a similar fate-so terrifying her family that they let her out into normal activity and she recovered.” A woman who had had the rest cure along with the narrator and the author has either driven them insane or to the borderline of insanity.

The words “psychopath” and “sociopath” are thrown around quite often and commonly confused, but please bear with me as we dive deeper into the true meaning of the words. In the early 1800s, doctors who worked with mental patients began to notice that some of their patients who appeared outwardly normal had what they termed a “moral depravity” or “moral insanity,” in that they seemed to possess no sense of ethics or of the rights of other people. The term “psychopath” was first applied to these people. The term was changed to “sociopath” in the 1930s to emphasize the damage they do to society. Modern researchers and doctors have returned to using the term “psychopath”.
In the book Girl, Interrupted, by Susanna Kaysen, one of the biggest focal points is mental illness. Mental illness can be tough to talk about, simply because the phrase “mental illness” encompasses such a wide range of conditions and conjures up images of deranged people, but it is very important, especially in this book. There is a certain stigma that people who are put into mental hospitals because they have medical problems or are insane and a possible danger to society. While this is sometimes true, it is far more common for patients to need help for a disorder, but just don’t know where to go or what to do, and can end up putting themselves or someone else in danger. This is the case with Susanna, who is the autobiographical main character of the book.

The aspect of the heart pounding and the preparation of muscles to react as they did at the time can have some patients believe it is occurring a second time, making any other symptoms worse. Emotional breakdowns are common after experiencing flashbacks and can lead to the patient having energy outbursts where it is hard for them to control themselves.
