This question already has an answer here:
I am struggling to find a disease/medical condition for my character. My character is 16-year-old female with a younger sister that doesn't have the disease. If you could please help, here is the criteria that the disease needs to fit.
- no physical indication that she has the disease.
- she will die by her mid 20's ish (this can be played with a bit)
- she can't need to be spending heaps of time in hospital because of it.
- no cancer or cystic fibrosis or anything else which is cliche
- no cure for this disease.
- she lives in Sydney with her middle-class family who has access to and can pay for medical treatments.
- set in the current time period so nothing too extreme or crazy, please.
thank you so much!
