sad nostalgia and sickness

I've been sick with a cold for the past few days, and as such have been randomly falling asleep during the day (I have all week off). Today as I was drifting off to sleep for a nap I had these vivid memories of the first couple years I spent living with my wife (we didn't even have a car the first few months). Good memories. Made me sad.

Sigh.

To be honest, I sometimes had memories of those times even before all this started and it also made me sad, but then I had this concrete hope that it could be like that again, because, you know, we were still supposedly the same people and we even lived in the same area.

Now it just feels like a big question mark. Who knows, maybe I'll experience even better things?

For some reason being sick always pulls out this melancholy nostalgia.

Probable.....I get those weird dreams when I'm sick too. And they leave you feeling even worse. Hang in there, that cold won't last forever and once it's gone I'll bet your outlook on life improves (and the nostalgic dreams cease).

It really sucks when you're sick around the holidays, so give yourself a break, OD on Nyquil (jk!!!), and please get better soon!

Oh wow...I was sick with the flu last week and had a dream that my ex was hugging me and my whole family was watching. I kept my arms at my side and was looking at everyone like, "what do I do?" while hoping that he was becoming the person he always pretended (wished?) he was. I was very sad when I woke up. I hadn't dreamed about him for a long time until I was sick.
