Sick Today, Gone Tomorrow

Does this ever happen to you? You feel that ache all over, and your throat starts to hurt, and you just know you’re going to be miserably sick for at least a week. But wait! You wake up the next day, and your body’s all, “PSYCHE!” You feel completely fine! I searched the internet for this, and while there were no solid answers, there were many replies stating the exact same thing happens to others. A complete mystery!

However, we all know the story of the boy who cried wolf. So I’m popping open a can of chicken noodle soup and taking my ass to bed early tonight.

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.


  • I know this feeling very well, although only experienced a few times. I have not been sick for over six months now and a span of two years before that one (not even a common cold), but unlike when I was younger and when my lifestyle was not health focused, I can easily overcome these illnesses with ease when they do strike.

    In reality, it how well your body can respond to the attack, whether it is to prevent it or to heal the damage. It is our lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, stress, etc…) that deem how strong our defense truly is.

    Best wishes with your health…


    • So this is a good thing then, right? It sounds like if my body’s defense system were weak, I’d probably end up with a full-blown cold. 🙂


      • It depends on how often you fall ill. If you are constantly or even periodically falling ill, it is a chronic and compacting stress that your body is being put through. Even if you overcome it quickly, it is in the longterm where these defense mechanisms will tire and cease to protect.

        If you entertain a lifestyle focused on health, then yes, you will not likely be getting any full blown colds.
