Mortality and Health

This post is a little more somber than most. My writer just found out she has skin cancer. She assures me it is the treatable kind that doesn’t spread and they can just whack it off. This is still very upsetting to me.

This is my writer’s LIFE! Okay, so I’m a vampire. But that doesn’t mean I want those around me that I love to die sooner than they should from preventable and treatable causes. My writer is careful most of the time about what she eats and she makes sure to exercise several times a week. She doesn’t tan and tries to avoid sunburns. She follows her doctor’s orders. Now, she will have to keep a watch out on her skin, use sunscreen, and wear hats and long sleeves. This won’t be too hard for her to do. She’s a Goth girl at heart.

Most people don’t take care of themselves like they should until it is too late. Take some time for some self-care. It’s not selfish. Take the time to exercise. Feed yourself well. Slow down and reduce your stress. Go to the doctor for checkups. If you don’t like to go to the doctor, change that. Find a new doctor. Make a few simple changes, then sit back and enjoy the results.

I will go with my writer on Friday afternoon for a second appointment to make sure they got it all. She assures me the excision is not terribly painful and it’s not a big thing. I don’t like my writer being cut on, but I am glad she is taking care of things.

I can assure you I will be keeping an eye on my writer’s health. I promise I will keep you all updated.

until next time, my little freaky ones,
