Her energy level is always teetering on empty. She was always just getting by. If she went for a hike, or a walk longer than a half hour, She'd be laid out for days.
KSL, the actor a foot taller than her, thought it was funny to have her get a running start to high five him...friends dancing around an empty bar and looking at her sitting down and wondering why she wasn't joining in...it's not fun.
She didn't want anyone to think she couldn't do something, so she stayed silent. Only a few people knew that she has this illness. She wished no one had to know. She wished she had a job that had insurance so she could go to a doctor and get medicine before it runs out in the next month. But it was not looking good. Or fun.
There was no light at the end of this tunnel. Not right now. She was waiting for a bend in the road.
