Starting a journal of her own is an admirable coping strategy, since Lucy has nobody to confide in. Consider what she has been going through in the week since Mina’s departure: her mother’s evidently failing physical health (including the depression accompanying a terminal diagnosis — 7 Sept), her upcoming wedding to Holmwood, his own concerns with his father’s health, and Lucy herself is feeling quite unwell. She becomes so sick that Holmwood asks for Seward’s help just one week later (31 Aug).
