It Was a Bad Cold
My molecular structure feels enlarged, like tinkertoys. My body has no substance other than the large molecules, yet I am heavy as lead. I can feel the hard knobs of my tinkertoy molecules pressing into the bed at my ankle, knee, hip. My blood is a thick, dark river barely churning. My head is huge, maybe as big as planet Earth while my feet and hands are very tiny, and seem to be quite a distance away.
When I finally worked up the nerve to open my eyes, everything looked green and orange, which is my signal to gather together my tinkertoy structure and take an aspirin. I so rarely take fever reducers, but yesterday was the day to do it. Two minutes after swallowing the aspirin, my fever broke. Instead of being very hot and dry, suddenly I was hot and sweaty, always a good sign. A half hour later, I could feel, as Steve at Shadows and Light says, my blood thinning out, bringing relief to every corner of my being. Really aspirin is a miracle drug!
A nice shower and decent night's sleep have left me more or less on the road to recovery, thank God. The world has returned to full spectrum color, doesn't look wavy or distorted, and my molecules have shrunk back to their usual size. Whew!
Thanks to all for your get well wishes. I believe your good thoughts really helped! I love my blog kin.
Note to self: Bottle of aspirin expired in May of 2007, must replace.
