Every day is a new experience for us since we started the Gaps Diet. This time it is illness.
As an Aspie, illness didn’t seem to affect Mark as much as it did me. One year, we both got the flu. I was dying in bed and he was able to get up to cook and medicate us both. He rarely complained about his symptoms.
This week, Mark has called out twice with a common cold. He has never felt symptoms to this extent and is definitely complaining about them. In fact, he seems a bit bewildered by them.
What part do the molecules of emotion play in feeling symptoms of illness?
