Health Update – Flu Edition #3

Reblogging this here since not all of my readers follow my A Whispered Wind blog. I am sure you’ve wondered by now what’s happened to me.

A Whispered Wind

Hello dear friends and readers. Just an update on my health. It has now been over two weeks since I caught that nasty flu bug. I am mostly better, but still not 100%. The cough has lingered and so has the fatigue. As some of you know, I have a suppressed immune system from taking chemo several years back, so any time I get sick, it takes me far longer than normal to get well again. But, not only have I been trying to take care of me, I have also been taking care of my dad. We are both on the road to recovery.

Some things I have been doing to help take care of myself:

  • lots of rest
  • using cayenne pepper and garlic in all of my soups and broths (still the only things I’ve been able to keep down)
  • taking high dosages of Vitamin C (2000 mgs…

I can’t tell the difference from my own ways of overanalyzing and anxiety. I start to wonder if they are connected. I am pretty sure they are. Last night was a hell of a night of overthinking, worry, concern, and you name it. The worst I have had in a long time. I still do not understand anxiety as it is new to me this year. It may sound crazy, but it frustrates me all the more that I don’t understand. I don’t like it. And if I dare to think about it, I have probably had it longer. I can identify the on start, and I have caught it and followed the plan to calm it down. But those times where it spirals out of control…like last night…is the worst. I could not stop it. I fell asleep off and on and each time I woke up it was…

I wanted to leave politics off of this blog for a while, but this isn’t just about politics, it is inspiration for women everywhere who have become the first to set the bar high for other women. Watch the video, listen to Meryl Streep narrate this short movie. It is moving and INSPIRATIONAL! (Note: you will have to visit the blog to get to the video)

Meryl Streep is the narrator of this emotionally powerful short film.

To prepare, here are some of Meryl Streep’s remarks at the DNC Convention 2016:

“Nearly 100 years after women got the vote, you people have made history, and you’re gonna make history again in November. Because Hillary Clinton will be our first woman president.

And she will be a great president, and she will be the first in a long line of women. And men. Who serve with grit and grace. She’ll be the first, but she won’t be the last.

We keep saying and hearing the popular phrase, “Ifwisheswerehorses, beggarswouldberiders.” We usually assume that our wishes are mere thoughts with no effects if not backed with action. But what if we are wrong? What if our wishes (the bad ones) that we voiced out actually happened? Would we feel happy about the outcome?

I’m sure almost everyone is guilty of entertaining some bad wishes in their heads for the people who have offended us. We barely expect them to come true; but it does help us feel better to wish them ill for a while as if that would be an exact payback for the hurt they caused us.

They say revenge is a meal best served cold. And everyone on a revenge mission should dig two graves. No amount of revenge can fully fill in the grief…
