The majority of my symptoms seem to be on their way out, but the cough is still running me ragged. My core is sore from coughing and I feel wobbly from lack of appetite. However, I am very grateful for the home made chicken stock and cooked brown rice in the fridge. I combined those two for lunch today. My time has been spent reading and knitting - definitely low stress, which I am grateful for as well. I know this bug will pass soon and I will be able to participate in more active things. I just have to be patient. (Any bodily exertion brings on a fit of coughing.) I feel somewhat disappointed that this year's challenge has been a little bit more passive for me, but I have to honor what my body needs. After all, it's about the body as well as the soul (I miss the old magazine title).
