Somebody else brought this up a couple of days ago; the kid gloves everybody must wear when dealing with Beth. Isn't it like she's been the victim of some ghastly trauma? If one wanted to classify the consummation of her marriage as a trauma, I could hardly object, but I think it's something more. Can't you imagine some head of the ward describing her state.......... "She's still quite excitable, prone to fits and tantrums. She speaks mostly with her hands, but she's up to forming almost complete sentences now, although she often gets sidetracked in her thoughts. She walks on the beach. She does cartwheels. She loves animals and having her picture taken. She loves to dress up and can now dress herself, although the results are a mixed bag at best. It is not uncommon that the kind of shock she's suffered can produce a temporary state of color-blindness. She's definitely making strides, but as to when she can join society again, we can't say."
