The last few weeks I’ve been feeling not very well – physically, that is. Yesterday I collapsed completely while frantically gasping for air – the weird and frightening experience of drowning while above water.
So right now I’m writing this from a hospital bed, where I landed with what turned out to be a nasty form of pneumonia. I hope and expect to be up and running again in about a week, maybe sooner if the antibiotics will work the way they’re supposed to.
You can be sure that very soon, I’ll post something here about two things.
One: how any common disease can worsen depression, and what we (ill and all) can do to prevent this.
Two: why every room and every object in a hospital always looks like it’s designed to make for an utterly depressing experience.
But at this moment?
Well, all I can add now is some fitting music. First I was thinking of the great 1974 love song The Air That I Breathe by The Hollies. But on second thought I want to save that one for a post about how I managed to quit smoking five weeks ago. Five full weeks without lighting a cigarette! Yes, that happens to be a related matter.
Hospital music? I am getting a kind of Room Service now… so here is the wonderful band Hey Negrita with their great Room Service song. Even though of course they had a hotel room in mind.
