The heart

Why is it that it is always when you're sick and you're run down that the heart cries the most?

Is it self pitty while being sick?

Or could it be your needs are most exposed and you feel even more alone than any other time?

This cold/upper respiratory infection has been dragging me along for only a few days now and it seems my heart is crying more now than ever before.

Not just for someone to make me soup, or to put their cool hands on my warm forehead, but it cries for God, it cries for companionship, and it seems to point out all my downfalls of late. It points out what's missing in my life, but I don't have the energy or mental capacity to take stock or work on it.

I hate being sick, have I mentioned that?


  1. Yeah, I totally feel the same way when I'm sick. I think it's because of the fever, yeah that's it the fever...
