The narrator really feels powerless in her situation. Her husband is a poster boy for the misogynistic society she must live under. Being a doctor, his "prescription" for her anxieties is a little rest and relaxation. For a woman that means being locked up in a room with ugly yellow wallpaper. The narrator tries to convince herself that her husband knows best and that she, a mere woman, is the product of irrational anxieties that (according to her husband) plague her gender. The narrator of course hates this mansion and the room like she, subconsciously, hates her marriage.
