Communion Of Dreams


“You’re so wrapped up in layers, onion boy, you’re afraid of your own feelings!”*

You know how it is.  Sometimes you don’t know how bad things were until you’re past them and get a little perspective.  It seems like this is what I’ve been going through with the respiratory infection I mentioned the other day.  After a week’s worth of horse-pill sized antibiotics (that image is almost actual size – I swear!) it seems like I am resolving several low-grade stubborn infections I’ve been fighting on my own for weeks if not months.  As I told a friend earlier:

Do feel better this morning, though a bit of a sore throat.  I think what is happening is as each layer of the infection is dealt with (to some extent), the next deeper layer emerges.  What I have been thinking was allergies may have been nothing more than low-grade, entrenched infections for the last several months.

So that’s how it’s been.  I am feeling better, though I still am worn ragged by the end of the day.  I would like to have something like my old energy levels back – I have a lot of stuff I’d like to do.  I suppose that alone is a good sign.
