Jamilla n'ha Gabriella lay in her bed feeling barely alive. She didn't have the energy to get up, in fact, she felt that she might never move again. Her mind told her that it was after sunrise and she should have gotten up when she woke up an hour ago, but the body simply refused to obey.
Keitha had explained to her that this was a perfectly normal feeling--they called it depression, and Jamilla could certainly see why. It was a consequence of the changes in her body from giving birth, and in Jamilla's case it was made worse by the fact that her baby had been a boy and she had given him to his father and his wife to raise. But Edrik had been born a month ago, surely she should be feeling better by now!
