The narrator is currently unable to take care of her own child, one of her main responsibilities in life, because of her postpartum depression.
Cecilia neglects the fact that she suffers from this, but throughout the book, it’s very obvious that she suffers from some minor effects of OCD. “Normally I can’t leave the house unless everything is perfect. I know I’m ridiculous.” Page 203. This quote is significant because it shows how much she suffers from OCD and the fact that she laughs it off by saying she’s ridiculous, seems as if she’s denying the fact that she suffers from any disorder. Her OCD also relates to how she lives her life because reading the book, some parts showed that she tried to maintain the ‘perfect’ personality such as in areas like her daughter’s school by being a leader for the parent teacher meetings and organizing everything by

I relate to this story the most because I have depression, feel like my parents don't love me, and complain about the things I don't have. In the story, everything about the girl's life is sad. If it's just sad to us, then to her, it's something that quite literally makes her want to die. I relate to this because I have depression. It's a less serious kind than the girls but I understand her more because of it.

Right before being led back into prison, Hester barely acknowledges her baby’s needs. “The infant… pierced the air with it’s wailings and screams; she strove to hush it, mechanically, but seemed scarcely to sympathize with it’s trouble” (48). Especially in this passage, Hester’s lack of sympathy towards the baby shows just how disturbed she really is by her situation. Instead of trying vigilantly to hush her baby, like most mothers would, her actions are “mechanical”. Her attempts to calm her baby are second hand and seemingly not as important as what is happening around her.
