Let Her Out!
"I get unreasonably angry with John sometimes I'm sure I never used to be so sensitive. I think it is due to this nervous condition."
Wow, I couldn't believe how this woman just let her husband rule over her like in The Yellow Wallpaper. The narrator was obviously suffering from a condition that needed love and nurture replaced, but instead she spends her days in this asylum-looking nursery, which just reminds her more of her condition. Nice doctor- he doesn't even suggest having outside exposure or getting some fresh air to help her. The narrator is letting John dominate her and she is believing him more everyday. She needs to get out and stop being a doormat. Its pretty sad when your best friend becomes the wallpaper...and its UGLY wallpaper.
