I'm p-paralyzed with happiness - Daisy quote in The Great Gatsby

‘I’m p-paralyzed with happiness.’
She laughed again, as if she said something very witty, and held my hand for a moment, looking up into my face, promising that there was no one in the world she so much wanted to see. That was a way she had.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

But is Daisy’s happiness a lie, merely a performance? Daisy may feel ‘paralyzed’ by being trapped in a loveless marriage that does not give her emotional satisfaction.
