It’s pretty astonishing that Scott was writing to Zelda’s doctors in personal correspondence letters, detailing her nightmares, her ‘symptoms’ of ‘homosexuality’, and how he thought they ought to be dosing her more or less at certain points in time of his letters, slash discussions about all her treatments with them! It’s terrifying. And her cheating on him with men and women being discusses as ‘symptoms’ too! And the weird part is Scott wasn’t being outright malicious, but this type of invasiveness/controllingness was completely acceptable back then :O
