Right after my second Covid-19 vaccine shot, I just came down with a bout of fever and weakness.
However, since this illness was expected, I was rather accepting of it. That part of my mind that turns restless during illness, rebels against it and wishes it away stayed quiet. At no point did I ask why I was singled out for this illness. At no point did my mind scream out – ‘Why me?’
This isn’t the case with other illnesses – I find my mind in full blown rebellion against the disease. But why should any other bout of sickness be different from a vaccine induced fever? Isn’t any form of sickness just as inevitable?
Oftentimes, it isn’t our body that is unhealthy. It is merely our mind’s expectations.
