Virginia was able to survive five years of tuberculosis but died at the age of 24. His poem “Annabel Lee” is written for his wife after she died. “But our love it was stronger by far than the love of those who were older than we.” After Virginia lost to tuberculosis, Poe went into a deep dark state of drinking to take his sadness away. He wrote “Masque of the Red Death,” because of all the tuberculosis and how it kills people faster. Ironically tuberculosis gave Poe stories/poems to write stories over his life and how he felt during that time.

Fatigue has manifested in both my mother and I, you can tell by just looking at us. I saw it in her eyes as she looked at me—but it was not really when she looked at me; rather, it was when she looked away. Her physical being was with me, but throughout the interview I wondered if her mind was elsewhere. The likelihood of her mind being elsewhere was rather high, given that we were discussing her lifelong battle with diabetes. Although my mother was diagnosed with diabetes during her pregnancy with me, according to her doctor, her body was extensively damaged from the years the diabetes went undetected.

Verville, 2014).

I, again, was too little to go through this devastation of him having cancer and eventually dying, but being a widow and having her husband die when you still have many years to go has major effects on you and your life. One of them can be your relationship with God. This past semester I asked my grandma this question for my religion class and just from this simple conversation I had with her, I learned a lot about her relationship with God and her faithfulness. “Why do you believe in God?” “I believe in God because when I was going through breast cancer and the death of your grandfather and when I felt alone in those times God was always with me. I might sound weird, but sometimes I just talk to God and I don’t even need a response because I know, deep down in my heart, that he is there for me,” Donna replied getting emotional.

When Jeannie was four years old, she was diagnosed with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva by the Mayo Clinic (TGWTB). Because this is one of the rarest diseases in the world, this name didn’t really mean anything to Jeannie’s mom. Having this disorder would cause Jeannie to grow a extra skeleton outside of her own skeleton. This would cause Peeper to become immobile and need life long care and in some cases an early death. The doctors at the Mayo clinic didn’t tell the Peepers this.
