Forgetting yourself with respect to your health does not mean neglecting to take care of yourself, for that is your duty and the best of penances, but do it with great abandonment, saying ‘thank you’ to God no matter what happens. When your soul is burdened and fatigued by the weight of your body, do not be discouraged, rather go by faith and love to Him who said ‘Come to me and I will refresh you.’ As for your spirit, never let yourself be depressed by the thought of your sufferings.

-St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
