One of the great troubles with neurasthenic women is that they do not laugh enough.
This view of her condition by her family or her physician is the tragedy of the neurasthenic.
She finally becomes anemic and neurasthenic and a misanthrope.
She was of neurasthenic inheritance, and was put in unfavourable conditions.
A neurasthenic, however, is not to be mistaken for an imbecile.
