How I Rethink My Sick Days

Home sick today. Tea, soup, and naps on deck. I’m in my new flannel under my coveted weighted blanket and feeling loved by my husbands chicken soup. I used to get super discouraged whenever I got sick. These days, I like to think of my sick days as upgrades. I’m not sure which part of the internet I read it first but now it’s stuck. So today, I’m home upgrading to Human 37.5. This whole idea reminds me of an alien invasion movie where the aliens couldn’t thrive here because they’d never upgraded their systems to avoid the viruses we have here on earth. Fiction makes myths work. lol And this whole idea makes me smile. It’s kinda silly but it works for me. I’m gunna be over embracing my entire self, weird nerdy parts and all. Please excuse me while I reboot to get the latest antibodies.


Without anxiety and illness I should have been like a ship without a rudder.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
