“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got ’till it’s gone.”
Wisdom from the “Big Yellow Taxi” rings in my whole tormented body on this day.
I was on retreat with 30 wonderful women over the weekend. And, clearly I was on retreat with some kind of nasty pestilence that has taken up residence in many of our bodies.
Ah me, the misery! It’s almost laughable how sad sad sad a body can become. I’m hauling myself from place to place in my house, bleary and spaced out from fever and all I can think about is getting rid of this headache and living through this so I can feel like a human again.
Knowing that I am not alone in this is no comfort: I am feeling bad that anyone else would feel this miserable.
There is hope, right?
