Sick and Tired: Part 2 (#5.2)
12 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy continues to struggle to find out what her disease is. Hr friend tells her which doctor to go to. He is a Chinese doctor and diagnoses Dorothy with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. But there is no cure so she has for now live with it, still, she is very happy to know what is wrong with her.

The scene at thee restaurant was very funny. When at the table Dorothy tells the waiter that they are celebrating because she found out disease she has. Sophia's trick to get free wine was also very funny, she was great at it. And Dorothy's speech at the end to the doctor at the restaurant was greatly done.
