The narrator is crazy, she is suffering from nervous depression. She is not getting any support from her husband for her disease and this makes her think that there really isnʼt anything wrong with her because he is a doctor. She needs to “relieve her mind.” She does so by starting to keep a journal. She thinks that this will help her treat her disease. She thinks that independence will help her condition. She doesnʼt like the yellow wallpaper. At one point she finds it menacing.
