A Tickle in the Funny Bone

My first ebook, A Tickle in the Funny Bone, is a dozen of my humorous columns including all the April Fool’s ones and the hilarious responses. Readers’ comments: I had a good laugh at this one - still wiping away the tears! I like your sense of humour! I laughed all the way through. I...

Jack's INsights & OUTbursts

l’m Sick.

“I’m sick.”

Never thought I’d have to write those words to explain why I didn’t write a blog post, or failed to keep a speaking engagement.

I guess there is a first time for everything.

Today I had to forego a speaking engagement at the annual conference of the Canadian Council of Christian Charities. The first time in living memory that I have had to cancel any speaking engagement, anywhere, because of sickness.

This is the second week in a row that I can’t write an InSights & OutBursts blog post.

I checked my diary. I have not been this sick since leaving Brazil, where parasitic infections tended to knock out even the strongest of us at least a week once a year.

So, I should be praising God. “Thank You, Father in Heaven, for twenty-seven years of blazing health!”

Yes, that does sound better! And I need to remember, He is still in control and uses even sickness to develop me into the kind of person He wants me to be.

ThermoThe basics: I got the flu almost two weeks ago, (yes, I even had a flu shot) and for six days I had sore throat, fever, headache and cough. Then that was over.

But the fatigue kept on. No energy to do anything. Sleeping sixteen plus hours a day. Feeling totally wiped out, useless, no good, and a burden on myself and others. It might take another week to get fully over this. What a waste!

On the other hand, a couple of weeks of being “out of it” prorated over twenty-seven years of health works out to maybe half a day of sickness once a year. I should NOT be complaining!

Here’s hoping I’ll be back to blogging next week.
