This week a particularly nasty stomach bug has infiltrated our home. I will spare you the details, but it has not been a pleasant experience. I spent most of yesterday trying to summon the energy to get out of bed, which I managed to do a couple of times, immediately regretting the decision each time.
The illness that I am experiencing this week is annoying but not life-threatening. Unfortunately, not all illness is so easily recovered from, and some diseases have no recovery.
While we are healthy we don’t think about sickness. We sometimes pause to reflect on our wellness when we see others suffer, but for the most part sickness seems alien to us. Something is wrong. We know it happens, and it could happen to us, but when it strikes, it seems so unfair.
