After losing her head, she realized the rest of her body was falling apart….
She had been driving herself crazy, worrying about her teenage son. He had been skipping school, and making up lies about everything. Her little boy was changing before her eyes, and she felt powerless. For a control freak, this was making her head spin. She could not stop crying, and was not sleeping at all. It did not take long for the stress to take its toll on her body. Her joints started aching, and every move became unbearable.
The dreaded dengue fever had seized the opportunity while she was weak, and had invaded her body. There was nothing more she could do, but release control and allow the disease to run its course. There is no cure, just rest and hydration, and of course, try and stop worrying!
