The Battle of Evermore

Pineapple Salsa
I must have eaten from Freddy's Taco truck at least 6 times this month.  To feel less guilty, I prepared a homemade element to fortify the meals, like this pineapple salsa. My body was fighting a bug in this new familiar way that takes it down hard in the eyes, the throat, energy and muscle aches.  In other words, when I fight a flu bug or cold now (post COVID times), my body goes into overdrive when defending itself almost to the extreme and that brings on old symptoms, like shortness of breath, muscle spasms and eye pain.  The great thing is that I usually don't get the actual bug but instead exhaust my body fighting it off.  This makes me wonder if the amount of SARS virus that stays in your system continues to fight for dominance over other incoming diseases.  Or perhaps your body defense system experiences a PTSD type of trauma when faced with an invasion.
