Does anyone have any suggestions - one way or the other - about doing sadhana while you are sick? The conflict is I want to keep my practice commitments but I currently am fighting off the seasonal flu. My energy is very low. Has anyone ever received teachings on this? Perhaps I should do a scaled down version of my daily sadhana or perhaps even wait until I feel better? Any thoughts?

Of course it is difficult, I felt like fainting, at the same time the presence was much stronger. In the end the sickness went on in much easier way and I recovered much quicker (at least that is what seemed to me).
