After a recent conversation with a dear friend about an illness she's witnessed in another friend, I realized I'm pretty lucky to have a good body.
  1. My flesh has never tried to destroy itself
    That's what happened to my friend's friend. Terrifying.
  2. My eyes work really well
    Recently, my contact prescription changed so that I needed less correction...and I don't need much anyway.
  3. My ears work very well
    When I worked at the library, we had many deaf patrons and I always wished I knew American Sign Language.
  4. Despite how I've struggled with my weight, it has held up pretty well
  5. The cancer that ravaged my mother IS more or less preventable if I take the right steps
    I mean...look at Angelina Jolie.
