Moreover, they see her as some type of monster or a pathetic excuse for a person. When in actuality she is just someone who may be struggling with a mental illness, or one that was created for her. Kaysen has to deal with the stigma that exists within the outside world for the rest of her life because of her premature institutionalization by her doctor. This was a way for her family to use the medical system against Susanna and throw her into a hospital to try to turn her into a woman that they approve
If the brain does not have anything to occupy itself then a man or woman will go into a state of depression. Being isolated from the outside world for so long caused her brain to start hallucinating. 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 effects of the rest cure on many women were devastating to their health and is a unreliable treatment to treating postpartum depression. Jane’s efforts to avoid others from looking at the hideous painting, shows how that
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
Before seeing a psychiatrist, she had already attempted suicide. Visits with her psychiatrist reduced her drinking, but did not stop her abusing Veronal tablets since she was addicted. “Depressed in the aftermath of a minor love affair, she used her supply of Veronal in a second suicide attempt” (Crane). Big Blonde is written as a background to show how she struggled and to tell readers the mistakes she has made in life. Life can be tough sometimes and that is what Dorothy is trying to demonstrate.
The drug user continues to use substances and the compulsive behavior despite the harmful consequences, and tries to systematically avoid responsibility and reality, while he or she tends to isolate himself/herself from others because of guilt and pain (Angres, & Bettinardi-Angres, 2008). All these characteristics led to the conclusion that drug addiction is a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use. It is considered as a brain disease because drugs change the structure of the brain, and how it works. Every drug affects different systems of the brain. For example, in the case of cocaine, as the brain is adapted in the presence of the specific drug, brain regions responsible for judgment, decision-making, learning, and memory begin to physically change, making certain behaviors “hard-wired.” In some brain regions, connections between neurons are pruned back.
Medical conditionsn like arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and neurological condition can affect female libido.

The imagery of the ‘sour air’ encompassing her represents a miasma of rejection from society, who pressure her to conform to a single way of life. Whilst some say that looking through a Bell Jar gives her a distorted perception of society and the pressure she receives is a fiction of her own imagination, one must look only at her relationship with her mother to realize she is victimized by her harsh society. In specific it reminds us of the toxic environment set up by her mother who tells her "I knew you'd decide to be all right again". It’s shocking to the reader who is able to sympathize with Esther’s clear internal struggles, yet her own mother sees it only as a nuisance. The extended metaphor within this novel and the fragmentary structure we so often see in Plath’s work presents the depth of mental disorder but more importantly brings a harsh light to the society that never understood or even tried

Doctors should always look for signs of depression or anxiety in their patients and ask them if they are having any suicidal thoughts because many teenagers that are diagnosed with epilepsy feel as if their life has just been taken from them and they start to have suicidal thoughts because they believe that’s the only option they have (Epilepsy Information Page, n.d.).Understanding epilepsy is difficult because it varies from person to person.
