In the midst of a viral apocalypse, it’s hard not to think about your health.
Am I safe? Will I be infected?
And if so, should I be binge watching Netflix… or picking out a granite color and font?
Thankfully I’m a very healthy person. One might say boringly so.
I’ve never broken a bone.
I’ve never had the flu, an ear infection, strep throat, the measles, pink eye or a cavity.
I still have my tonsils, appendix and wisdom teeth.
Until I was 48 years old, I’d never had the chicken pox either.
And trust me…. when I caught them from the husband because he came down with shingles?
I was not a happy camper.
No, those aren’t pimples….
And if you think it sucked having chicken pox as a kid? Try doing it when you’re almost 50. It’s not only Hella uncomfortable…. but dangerous to boot.
Matter of fact, it was such an oddity to present at that age, all the doctors and nurses stopped by the exam room to take a peek.
You know all those times in your life when it was nice to feel special?
That wasn’t one of them.
But aside from that week of polka dotted misery, I’ve been blissfully healthy.
Heck, I’d never even been in the hospital until a few years ago…. and naturally, everything that could go wrong?
Because if you’re going to screw something up?
My motto is don’t do it halfway.
