"I was home schooled from the 4th grade on because I have a really bad immune system," she said. "A lot of people don't know that. It's really easy for me to get sick. I lose my voice quite a bit. I'm pretty much always not feeling 100%. It's very rare for me to say 'Wow, nothing's wrong.' There's always some kind of something going on with me."
She added, "I had mono for several weeks when I was five years old and it really weakened my immune system. Now it's pretty much called 'Epstein Barr' and/or 'Chronic Fatigue' [syndrome]. My immune system is really bad. I'm not like the boy in the bubble like some people like to joke, but if somebody has a cold, I'm going to get it. Being a kid in school, I'd get Scarlet fever and strep throat several times."
