The Upside of Getting a Bad Cold

Saturday, February 11, 2012

I've been fortunate in not having been sick for a long time. But these past few weeks, with news about my dying mother and other assorted stressors, my system has been worn down. Not to mention that so many are walking around in public blowing their cooties all over the place.

Have caught a humdinger of a cold that I'm trying to prevent moving down into my lungs and causing bigger trouble.

The benefit of all this? Well, so busy with stuffy nose and cough that I don't feel my stomach pangs. Have to remember to eat, and when I do, I am definitely making much better choices. So, hey, not great to feel lousy, but I'll see if I can use this time to turn some of my daily habits back to better intake.

Wishing all a fun weekend.

    I love that "public blowing their cooties all over the place".
    Isn't it amazing how we notice these thingas when we are not well. Take gentle care of yourself J.

    PLUS- you're giving your body a much needed rest period
    (you are, aren't you?).
    Your body will thank you and your cold will be over quicker.
