In the “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the narrator is diagnosed with neurasthenia, a disease characterized by so-called “nervous exhaustion” and extreme excitability. The narrator is prescribed S. Weir Mitchell’s “rest cure” in an effort to calm her nervous depression and allow her to resume her proper position in the household.
