Hello, walking pneumonia, it's been a long time.
Grump. Adam has shaken it off like a wet dog thanks to his supreme immune system. Me? BAHAHAHA NO. Grump. The virus teamed up with the fibromyalgia, spasticity, ataxia, epilepsy, and autistic comorbids. Adam couldn't get how I was too weak to lift a slice of beloved New York pizza to mouth unless I drank whole milk just for calories. It was hunger, viral illness, disabilities, chronic illnesses, altogether now. I'm eating slowly as much as possible now. My go to safe food during hunger fatigues is always dairy, since it saved my life in college, and it's been long debunked that dairy products make the body produce more mucus. Second safety food is nut butter like cashew and almond, or peanut butter. Yesterday's sandwich of smooth cashew butter with lingonberry preserves on multi grain bread was divine.
I'm super cold. My temperature is so low, I'm a brown dwarf. Husband's joke, he's the astronomy nerd. While I agree that I may not have enough mass to trigger internal combustion yet, the neuro-psychiatric chemicals and neurons running around the inferior parietal lobe are making jokes about how "less mass is the whole point lolz" and excuse me, I need kick my brain in the insula now.
Current encouraging meal: yellow rice mixed with crema, mushroom, and crumbled bacon. Really really encouraging flavor.
(Seriously, my basal temperature hovers around 98.3 normaly. Right now it's at 97.2... Husband is always amused that I rarely create my chi flow after meals. He's a furnace, instantly beginning metabolic burn so intense that he projects heat. Me? My core is cold. My chi might as well be ice. Since I do work a little with chakras and basic reiki, I know how often my solar plexus chakra is partially blocked. Weird thing is that the few times I did healing touch on friends, they mentioned that i projected cooling energy, like a burn being soothed or a soft autumn breeze.
I will see if I can start my metabolism furnace more quickly. Also, velvet cardigan!
