@Kris, It looks like some users of this site harbor a strong ambition for closing questions... All I'm asking is the meaning of the phrase in plain English. Does this post really seems to you,I don't know, faint?

What does "heaven and earth" mean? Why did the Lady used "thus pollured" if the marriage had not taken place yet?

So "acute" may cause "chronic" and vice versa? But I think "chronic " causes "acute" doesn't make sense; since the attack should be accounted as a result of "chronic" otherwise what is the point in coining this term as a disease property ?
