Of Feasts and Famine


Gratitude Day 13- My health

One of my good friends is spending your birthday in the hospital. Dogged by multiple and mysterious health problems, she always seems to be in to some specialist or another. She often complains of unending pain, interfering with her work and play. Hence the birthday in the hospital.

As for me, I'm pretty damn healthy. Sure, I had a quick cancer scare. (Totally operable, no chemo, no big deal). And I have had some minor injuries and infections (ear). But for the most part, I can carry a high deductible insurance plan and pay many things out of pocket. I try to safe guard my health. I eat fairly well, I exercise. But some of this is just dumb luck. Or dumb genetics. I seem to have a surfeit of both.
