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).
dzoki, thank you for this feedback. I was suffering from the seasonal flu here in the US, which has been pretty extreme this year as far as the flu goes - diziness, fever, chills, body aches, etc. I did attempt to perform my daily sadhana as best I could. I think being sick in itself was a great reminder of impermanence (felt like I was about to die! lol) as well as the nature of samsara and the three types of suffering (i.e. suffering of suffering, suffering of change, all pervasive suffering).
