My sickness has been going on for a few days now, but it only really kicked in yesterday. Basically i have a sore throat, with a stuffy nose. Last night I was able to sleep fine thanks to some sleeping pills I took. But tonight I didn't take any, and now I am having trouble staying asleep.

I was advised by my mother to call our family doctor for medicine and to have a prescription filled but it's been icing and snowing so bad I wouldn't be able to leave campus even if my car started in this cold.

I've tried praying and reading scripture, I suppose even if I cannot sleep it would be better if I did something since suffering is always an important time to turn towards God. (seeing as I haven't been as faithful recently)

I may try and see if we have anything to help with my throat, but since we are kind of isolated on campus atm, there isn't much I can do to be able to run to a grocery store or a pharmacy (or even the hospital 2 blocks away)...

Please, I need prayers right now, I don't believe this is just a passing sickness, it may indeed be something a bit more reflective of my soul at the current time. Through your prayers and the prayers of the Saints, I am confident I will become well in soul and body.

Thank you!

If you can, make a warm mug of tea and read the entire Book of Psalms.

Thank you all very much for your prayers,
I finally fell asleep and finally stayed asleep. I'm feeling better than I felt yesterday.

After talking to my mother (who has been working in the medical field for longer than i've been alive, about 21 years), I think we'eve detirmined the prescription i had taken (Phenavent or Pseudovent) had possibly kept me awake because I had taken it way too late. (midnight)

Hopefully I can keep getting better and keep praying, Lord knows I certainly need to get back on track spiritually.

I am also confident with your prayers and the prayers of my Patron Saint (well not officially, but I am named after him) Luke, I can be healed.

Feeling a bit better, I may be near the end of my illness. The fluid from my sinus infection has been going down my throat causing a lot of throat pain (I was unable to sleep very much last night).
I'm still taking medicine, but it only helps during the daytime. My parents will be sending me some nighttime medicine soon.
Hopefully this is almost over, I have a full day of classes tomorrow and it was hard to just get through the one I had today.

Thank you for all of your prayers!
