The word hysteria, derived from the latin word for uterus, addresses the saturnine issue of loss of center. The Oxford English dictionary says, "Women being much more liable than men to this disorder, it was originally thought to be due to a disturbance of the uterus."
Hysteria has been described as occurring when one enters a world that is not of one's own definition. The process begins with detachment, which becomes loneliness, which becomes hungry yearning. Hungry yearning tilts us off balance so that we easily fall into someone else's game, where we then thrash crazily like a hooked fish. Thrashing crazily could be called the predominant symptom of the late 20th century. But flailing is actually a healthy reaction to an unhealthy situation, as when a fish attempts to become unhooked.
Historically hysteria has been observed most frequently in women who have had to live in worlds defined by men. But now the masks have come off, and thrashing crazily is available to both sexes in recognition that neither is in a world of its own choosing. " Caroline Casey -Making The Gods Work For You
