(no subject)

I am intimidated by little_details, because I am very easily intimidated. So I am posing this question to you guys instead…

I need a disease that is not necessarily fatal, but would be if the person who had it was not interested in getting better. Basically, my character is suffering from depression after having a baby, and for plot reasons she has to die of an illness. So I need a good illness. Setting is modern-day America. It’s for a Spider-Man fanfic, but comic book science is not allowed. ;)

Any helpers get a cookie. ;)

(and it’s my birthday today! I am 19. ;) )
