Fighting Hidden Demons

I’m really not sure what’s up with my body. ūüôĀ I usually never get sick, and if I do, it’s usually fleeting and somewhat restrained. ¬†Five weeks ago, I started to get the flu, and it hit me HARD for 3.5¬†solid straight weeks. The first week, neither slaDE nor myself got much sleep with my fits of hacking and constant waking. I still have a lingering wicked annoying cough (thankfully all the phlegm has dried up) and I am SERIOUSLY tired all the time. I’m¬†napping¬†where I can and getting 8 hours of sleep a night. Maybe I need more cardio? Never a bad thing. But with being so tired, it’s hard to get motivated. And with these 5:30am morning starts, I’m challenged but sticking with our routine of 2 hours of daily yoga, meditation and pranayama. Could it be mono, whooping cough, iron deficiency, pneumonia? I’m hoping to see a doctor in the next week. I can’t take all this tiredness and perpetual coughing accompanied by a squeaky¬†voice. I haven’t wanted to resort to antibiotics, so I’ve been stocking up on my Ayurvedic medicine as well as echinacea, astragalus,¬†turmeric, golden seal and other immune fighting herbs. Can’t seem to get much done. Blah …. ūüôĀ
