Lucy’s parents weren’t the traditional parents that Lucy thought they were supposed to be. Grealy says “Seeing my parents act so much like…parents…surprised me(35)”. It’s sad because she’s used to seeing her mom sad and having family drama so she tries not to believe that her family is normal. She had the support from the people from the hospital to cheer her up and keep her company. Lucy was in chemo and she had to wear wigs because her hair was falling out.
Studies have shown that over 60 percent of women were unhappy with their bodies, as they have been raised comparing themselves with Barbie and other various models of the fashion industry. Women are left feeling inadequate and bad about themselves, which can lead to eating disorders. Kristen Overman, a mental health counselor says, “What’s frustrating for most women is that they’re generally stuck with the body type they have.” Body image, and girls’ perception on what they should look like, starts at adolescence, at home, with our parents, and in school, when trying to fit in with the rest of the girls their age. Acceptance becomes a priority at this age. Studies reveal children are going on diets in as early as the fourth grade.
Through Strephon’s eyes we see how much time women spend making themselves beautiful when underneath all of the materialistic “litter” (Swift 8), they are normal human beings.

Strephon who compares Celia to a “goddess” (Swift 3) has entered into his loves dressing room out of curiosity to find out why it takes her five hours to prepare herself. “And first, a dirty smock appeared, beneath the arm-pits well besmeared” (Swift 11-12).

It started off with a bald spot right on the top of her head, and she was really worried because of how big and pronounced it really was.

Bundy described his grandmother as a timid and obedient woman who periodically underwent Electroconvulsive therapy for depression he said she feared leaving the house and even more so toward the end of her life.

The individual replied that she doesn’t like having her hair washed because the soap goes into her eyes. I asked how often she has a shower and daily washes and she said she doesn’t like having showers because she has already had one. This individual has demensia and her memory length is 2 minutes before she has forgot what she has said or done. So, the way i addressed the bathing issue was to hold her hand because she gets distressed, reassure her that i will be with her at all times, unless she says otherwise. That she can help prepare getting her clean clothes ready and she can chose her bath soaps and shampoos.
In February 2006, Emily Jerry, a two-year old child was at a Cleveland hospital to complete her last series of chemotherapy treatment. Her doctor ordered intravenous chemotherapy solution that was filled incorrectly by a pharmacy technician. The prescription called for 1% saline; however, a lethal amount of 23% saline was given instead, causing her to slip into a coma resulting in death.

Putting aside the differences they have a trait in common; they are true life stories that happen to women on a daily basis. The poem “Barbie Doll” is very different from the poem “La Migra.” It is a very discouraging poem because the destructiveness of the standards of female beauty led to the girl’s death. The young girl classmates used to make fun of her big nose and fat legs. “Everyone saw a fat nose on thick legs.”(line 6). She got to the point that she was not strong enough to take all the pressure, so she cut herself up and offered her legs and nose up.
When sick they would always go to the doctor and the medicines they were taking never really seemed to help them. It always made things worse. During the movie they were comparing breast cancer stats between the United States and Japan. 38% of American women will either face or have breast cancer in their lifetime.
