Desanté

Desanté

n.
the brooding delirium of being sick, which makes time slow to a trickle and turns even the most pathetic of tasks into monumental struggles, until the act of lifting your head from the pillow feels like trying to climb a mountain, wondering if you’ll ever find your way back again, or even catch your breath.

A riff on the French toast santé. Literally, “un-health!” Pronounced “day-sahn-tey.”
