i find this really disturbing
This episode of Private Practice. It is Shonda Rhimes’ new show and I have only seen it a couple times. This particular episode, this woman goes to the doctors with some injuries from a fall she took when a man broke into her house. It turns out it was not just a break in though she was attacked and raped by the man who broke in she is just not telling anyone because she thinks her husband will freak. And she wants to take a memory erase drug.
Here is where it gets disturbing. The truth comes out and the husband is all broken up and the docs are saying it is not your fault to him, and say to her, Hey you do not need to forget you survived you are strong enough you were just afraid the hubby there would not be and then they tell him —
Let your wife take care of you.
Excuse me? Let your wife take care of you? Isn’t this like telling a cancer patient to be the rock for relatives freaking out and making it about them when they should stop that right now and be there for the person who has cancer?
Now the husband who has not been attacked or physically injured is supposed to let his wife, who has, take care of him?
That is just wrong.
