Can't stop working

"Melissa"

"Hmm?"

"How can you stand working three jobs?" I asked her, "I mean..no offence here, but you don't seem like you have a good physique to stretch yourself that hard.."

Apart from being a part-timer as my coworker, she also babysits during the morning and work as a shoe company saleswoman on certain days. But one thing that me and some folks knew is that she does not have that much of a good health: she has a heart problem and a weakened kneecap.

"That's the irony, T... I just can't stop moving unless I fall asleep. If I stop working, I'll be in pain for being still"

"Seriously?"

"Uh-huh", she nodded, "That's what my doctor told me"

Wow. I never know that there exists such a medical condition.

Melissa's just like my grandma. She insists on washing her own laundry while a washing machine was bought for her, sweeping the yard vigorously like she was still in her maiden days..

You know that some folks are destined (=cursed?) to be constantly mobile and active almost all the time?
