I almost never get sick. About a year ago, I had a norovirus. Definitely not food poisoning. I was sick off and on for almost 10 days--unheard of for me. And then it was gone and I was back to being fine.
"My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved;I have been given much and I have given something in return...Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and an adventure." O. Sacks
