Just letting you all know that my blog is going to be rather quiet for the next couple of days at least – I have comments to answer as well and I promise I’ll get to them eventually. I’ve also gotten very behind on reading your blogs! I’m sorry.
I’ve come down with a nasty bout of the flu – I thought it was just a winter cold but BOOM! This thing is nasty.
It’s made me realize just how important it is for us to have as much strength in reserve as possible. When you are fighting an eating disorder and you get something like the flu – having a bit of extra weight, and having had good nutrition over a long period of time beforehand could mean the difference between surviving it or not.
This flu strain has been killing people – I’ve only avoided hospital because it was a weekend and I was too stubborn to go – but I’m still very lucky. I realize I need a lot more weight, nutrition, strength behind me or the next serious bug that comes along might just kill me.
Remember that, my lovely friends – you can’t ever know what’s around the corner. If you got a serious illness tomorrow, could your body cope with it?
