"John says if I don't pick up faster he shall send me to Weir Mitchell in the fall. but I don't want to." During the Yellow Wallpaper women were treated as if they were inferior to men. As shown in quote and image, her husband John was telling her what she would do. Women didn't have a big say in their lives and did what they were told. In the Yellow Wallpaper, her husband makes every decision for her so she has no control over her own life.
"You see he does not believe I am sick"Her husband, John, fails to come to the realization that she is sick and doesn't take it seriously. She is obviously mentally ill due to the choices she makes. Her very descriptive detail of the yellow wallpaper, her sticking her arm in the wall and creeping next to it and her chewing on her bed frame out of anger.
