CONFLICT

Definition-The "problem" which triggers action

Ex: "Whenever you read a cancer booklet or website or whatever, they always list depression among the side effects of cancer. But, in fact, depression is not a side effect of cancer. Depression is a side effect of dying. (cancer is also a side effect of dying. Almost everything is, really) But my mom believed I required treatment, so she took me to see my regular doctor Jim, who agreed that I was veritably swimming in a paralyzing and totally clinical depression, and that therefore my meds should be adjusted an dalso I should attend a weekly support group." PAGE=1 Man vs. body

This quote describes conflict because Hazel is living her life with cancer and she cant do as many things as the other kids can do because her tank is dragging her down.
