Carole's death would officially begin my experience with life in the cave for the next 18 months.
It started out as simple fatigue. Not being able to climb as many stairs as usual. But soon Celia's tiredness developed into severe leg pain and eventually, hair loss.

After a long bout of testing, she discovered the source of her misery: a severe autoimmune disease with the ominous name of Grave's.
