She has tried to stay strong and positive, but when the pain creeps up sometimes it feels hopeless. Her pain is a symptom that will not go away by itself, it's a deep debilitating pain, a pain of lost dreams.

In the past, she has never needed help from anyone, she has always relied upon herself. However, this time, she can't fight it alone.
