A Short Thought About This Morning

This morning I awoke with the now familiar stomach and lower back pains that have been recurrent these last two weeks. A feeling of panic was simultaneously bubbling in the pit of my tummy, and I was lying there for half an hour or more, trying to relax away the anxiety, with limited results.

This, I think, is an important place to begin concentrating my efforts for an eventual return to abnormality. Starting the day with mentally draining negativity undoubtedly affects the rest of my day, and despite having a restful night’s sleep I start this Sunday with an uncomfortable, jarring feeling, even after taking my medicine.
