Still sick.

I spent yesterday sitting on the couch, watching mindless television.  My head is still stuffed up, eyes watering, earache and feeling horrible.  I’m taking Vitamins, Airborne, orange juice and cold medication. 

If I have learned one thing over the last few years, it is that illness manifests in our bodies because of  what is going on in our lives.  This is what I know about colds.

A cold will often manifest as a result of congestion on a mental level, especially when there’s so much going on in your head that you don’t know which way to turn. You have the feeling that someone or some situation is either walking all over you or is being thrust upon you. You also get so caught up in unimportant details that you don’t know where to begin. This is frustrating for you because you want to see everything completed, even before you have gotten ahead of yourself. The mental conclusion that results blocks your view of your needs and you are unable to live in the moment.

As every illness has a purpose, however, a clod serves to tell you that external forces too easily influence you. The onset of a cold is a message from the body that it’s time for you to let go; stop worrying needlessly about every little thing.   

Well, that about sums it up for me.  I am not looking forward to March.  My Dad will be gone one year on March 23rd.  Joe will be gone two years on Easter Sunday.  I would say that I am feeling thrust into March, head on.  As I continue to figure out how to navigate through the upcoming weeks, I pray that I begin to feel better physically.
