One way William experiences marginalization is through the isolation the illness of depression throws him into. As William loses interest in more and more parts of his personal and family life, he withdraws more and more and becomes more and more marginalized as an "other" because of the improbable behaviors his illness forces his family and friends to witness and be confused by.
