Hiya everyone. I don't remember when I've felt this sick. A dry cough which really hurts in the chest came on yesterday (24 hours ago) at work and now add a high fever - the kind that makes you feel euphoric and miserable at the same time. From many years of past experience, this is classic "flu" symptoms. Oddly, I haven't been at all sick in the last 4 years so it makes it feel even worse.

I've been fasting now 24 hours so it couldn't have come at a better time. I'm really trying to maintain this water fast because I KNOW eating will make me feel worse. :dry:

Just looking for a bit of support that I'm doing the right thing for the quickest recovery.

Thank you.

It's been 42 hours. I'll definitely make it to 48.

So no one's up for a bit of moral support? Anyone????

Hi Indie, hope you're feeling better.
I am not sure, maybe the Doc will drop by. What you're doing makes sense to me. I remember always hearing..."feed a cold, starve a fever".
Food = Energy = Heat, so it seems fasting will help.

Indie, sometimes its more than illness- sometimes its the toxins being released that can imitate illness. Would obviously depend on how much fasting someone does and how frequently- but in my early fasts I felt awful like flu more than once.

Accept yourself as you are. Otherwise you will never see opportunity. You will not feel free to move toward it; you will feel you are not deserving.

Thank you Elizabeth and Marc! Actually I began to feel sick and then immediately began to fast. It's definitely an illness. 48 hours so far and the coughing has subsided. Feeling a definite improvement but definitely still sick. So it seems to be working :) I'll know for sure tonight because flu and fever always get worse at night. I'll report back in 12 hours and let you know how it's going!

Dear ElizabethC, the original expression was: "If you feed a cold, you'll have to starve the fever".. In those days, a little illness was called a cold and a serious disease was called a fever. Thus they knew if you keep on eating whilst ill, you will get more ill... and the only effective way of treating a disease was fasting... well, it often still is.

So Indie it looks like you're doing the right thing...
