4. What is the significance of Daisy’s suicide? What impact did it have on Susanna? Daisy’s suicide was significant in that it made Susanna realize that death was not the answer she broke down when she found her because that could have been her if she would have been successful in committing suicide. On the night before her release, Susanna’s writings were revealed to everyone and she became very angry with Lisa.
Susanna is diagnosed with borderline personality disorder that is characterized by emotional disturbance. However, her conduct in Claymore suggest that she`s not the one who wants to be treated: she has sex with her boyfriend during his visits to the hospital and kisses with the young attendant.

Contrary to that, there are also multiple similarities between their societal behaviors involving mental illnesses and ours. In Jane Eyre, there can be many arguments made on characters that can be considered ‘mentally incompetent’ or ‘insane’. One example would be Aunt Reed, who found it impossible to care for Jane as her own child simply because she did not like the child’s mother. Today, Aunt Reed would be designated as having Avoidant Attachment Disorder. This mental illness would be diagnosed based upon her hostility, her criticism, her self-important image and her lack of empathy towards Jane.
If the information was shared with Hannah's daughter this could cause upset and potential breakdown of the relationship with her mother as Hannah said her daughter 'will be very angry' . Also if you were to share the information with Hannah's mother without her consent then she would lose all trust in you. Hannah has the
She shows that she possesses borderline personality disorder through her self-mutilation, identity disturbance, mood swings, chronic emptiness and boredom, and impulsive behaviour. Susanna displays borderline personality disorder with her acts of self-mutilation, as it is the third point on the DSM-IV list of criteria for BPD. Susanna shows this in her attempt to commit suicide which lead to her being sent to the mental institute in the first place. She consumed an entire bottle of Aspirin because she claimed to have had a headache, hereafter she drank a bottle of vodka. This was extremely dangerous to her health and potentially life-threatening, which is an obvious act of self-mutilation.
Maternal deprivation is where a child has an attachment bond with a caregiver but it is then taken away or disrupted. For example, if a child’s mother went to prison for murder and received a life sentence. On the other hand, maternal privation is where the child has never had a chance to form a meaningful bond with a caregiver, possibly due to death like the Koluchova twins. The first main long term consequence of maternal deprivation is the fact that it promotes a negative internal working model with relationships and so those who have experienced maternal deprivation may have problems with forming relationships with others later in life as they may not trust people due to the fact that they were let down by their first main caregiver. Moreover, they don’t value themselves as having been let down and thus, do not develop a positive internal working model for how relationships work and function.
Sohrab repeats this same statement while in the hospital, and both concern adoption. Soraya is tired of trying for her own baby but then is faced with the process of considering adoption, and Sohrab had attempted suicide because he thought he would have to go to an orphanage while he awaited a pending adoption. This is also ironic because both should be physically exhausted from their traumas, but their statements are only referring to their mental exhaustion and resignation. Then, in a remorseful

This is an understandable thing and so it makes sense to want to relive your youth, etc, but what I don’t understand is why people take it to that extreme, (midlife crisis). It had mentioned that this crisis can result in divorce and I was a little shocked by this. The movie “American Beauty” shows a man in a midlife crisis and his wife dealing with her own as well. Not to ruin the movie if you have not seen it, I’ll just say that they ended up being on two completely different levels which is in no way good for a relationship. Not all those in middle adulthood go through a midlife crisis – some go through a “midlife transition”, or change.
