I know, no one likes feeling sick, but still… It’s annoying when you don’t feel well. It messes with your creativity and your ability to focus. It’s harder to get things done. That’s the part that really bothers me. I have a hard enough time figuring out what needs to be done and how to do it, feeling crappy just makes it that much worse.
I am glad, however, that my sick days have been fewer and farther between. I think that has a lot to do with my mentality on sickness lately. There was that incurable severe thyroid thing I was dealing with, and that used to really get me down. There just came a point when I decided I wasn’t going to focus on it anymore, and amazingly, it made a difference.
I know some people don’t believe in the power of spiritual healing, but I do. There’s really no other way to explain it. Doctors had told me there was no cure, only treatment, and I didn’t have the money for treatment. I still don’t. For the longest time I was depressed and extremely sick. Then I watched a few spiritually-oriented movies and got to thinking about self-healing. I couldn’t wrap my head around pretending I was healthy, but I could stop focusing on my illness. I stopped talking about it, bringing attention to it or thinking about it. Over time, I have become healthier.
I’m actually really close to believing that my thyroid disorder is gone. I think I could attribute what’s wrong with my now to stress and nothing more. To me, that’s pretty damn awesome. Stress can be dealt with. Stress can go away. When stress is out of the way the body has enough energy to heal itself. I believe that can happen.
So yeah, I’m drawing some attention to a sick day, but I’m not doing it to make anyone feel bad for me. I’m doing it to let people know that there are ways to get better that don’t involve doctors or money. Your mind and body are pretty damn amazing if you let them be. Hell, people have inexplicably cured terminal cancer in themselves, so anything’s possible.
As for today, I’m not going to get too down about feeling off, because I know it will pass. I’m going to get some work done, try to do a craft project, and know that tomorrow will be better. After all, I’m not going to become a super-human goddess–creature if I allow myself to think that some petty little virus can get me down, now am I? :laugh:
