In these lines, Brabantio uses the imagery of illness to illustrate his reaction to Desdemona's marriage. He's been made physically sick.... his problem is overwhelming..... gut-wrenching.

Take hold on me, for my particular grief Is of so flood-gate and o'erbearing nature That it engluts and swallows other sorrows And it is still itself.
