Down for a While

I have been sick the past week and a half. I am not surprised. I am okay during high-stress situations and then collapse afterwards. I did it in school all the time. The day after finals I would get really sick.

This is a bad cold. It even went into my chest. My lungs feel tired of breathing. I can’t remember the last time I felt like that.

I want this to be a time of transformation, but I’m having a hard time having the energy to do anything at all. My resistance and just plain exhaustion are kicking my butt. I’m not sure what I can do about it.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.

    A long winter nap? Same thing happens to me. Stress makes us sick!
