Specific Emotions that Weaken Organs in the Body
I had just come through one of the healthiest years if my life. While everyone around me had caught colds and flu last year, I breezed through with good health.
My mother passed away in December, and I came down with a mild cold in February. My mother was more than my mother, she was also my closest friend. It has been difficult adjusting to her not being here. While I go through waves of grief now and then, the loss is still fresh. I am still processing the grief and loss.
I've had a nagging cough since that cold in February that had gotten worse. I was not only keeping awake night after night, I was keeping everyone else awake with it as well.
A visit to the doctor's office last week brought to light that I have developed bronchitis and a lung infection. The appropriate medicines were prescribed, and I have whittled back my appointments and projects to take time for extra rest and to heal.
Then, I saw this posted on Facebook. I did not know grief affects the lungs. It makes sense to me, and I'm going to start paying attention to these emotional and physical connections and learn more.
