Diana deals with chronic fatigue. Dealing with this struggle has made her realize that she would much rather be sick than tired. She explains that tired doesn’t even begin to describe her life. She is unable to make sure her kids are fed or to even make sure the alarm is set before bed. The word tired is a term with not much importance, that is why when people ask her if she is just tired she gets frustrated because tired should really be substituted for sick in her case.
