The young woman with the blond hair and blue eyes had a way of stressing herself out so much that she wouldn’t eat and would make herself sick. She didn’t do it on purpose; it was the way she had been since she could remember.
Right now, she was stressing over the last of her finals, how well she had done in the classes that were over now and her final projects. It wasn’t as if Valerie had ever really done bad in her classes, she normally carried a 4.0 average but it took some work on her part to keep it there.
Her parents never pressured her but it came from long before the girl and her sister had come to live with them. So, while Valerie understood she did it to herself, she also had a difficult time controlling it. She felt bad about it but it meant that occasionally she needed a remember to not be like that and a meeting with one of her siblings to be sure she ate and wasn’t completely stressing herself out.
Her sister Melissa, cared about her but the girl could barely take care of herself, a good deal of the time she would be in trouble or about to be there; another worry Valerie had. Her brother was a much better person for the task though Valerie never asked that of him and sometimes concerned herself that maybe between herself and Melissa; it was too for one person to take on. If he called and asked to meet with him, the young woman always did.
She was, right now, at home in her room studying for her final test, in Organic Chemistry, she did well in science but right now that didn’t matter. Having no classes , after her two this morning, once she got back she had been in her room studying. Valerie hadn’t eaten all day and it was getting close to dinner time; when a knock came to her bedroom door. ”Come in” She said knowing it was probably , her brother Adrian, as Melissa was supposed to be out until later.
