Being the daughter of a physician who felt that going to a doctor only led to more problems, I've always been reluctant to go unless I absolutely had to. However, my dad was always in perfect health. I never remember him being sick, breaking or even spraining anything, absolutely nothing at all until about 10 years ago. Then within a few years of each other he had: a major heart attack and bypass surgery, skin cancer on his face, and cataracts removed. At 77 he is wonderfully healthy and active and I only hope I can be as active as him at his age. :)
As I listened to the dermatologist today tell me: That spot is related to age, yes this one is too, those red spots- age related, oh this one is a clogged pore, also related to age, I had to laugh. I've been mostly healthy thus far, I guess the various spots and blemishes I have should be no surprise. At least I can comfort myself with the fact that for the first time ever in my life, I am putting almost 0 chemicals or foreign substances on my skin! What I see is all me! Oh, and some wonderful oils..... more on that next time! Ciao!
And, the view for today is: seeing migrant workers outside in the apple orchards pruning those apple trees, getting ready for harvest in a few weeks. It makes me sad though, to see all the little apples that fell off the trees. :( I want to go rescue them all and make them into sauce!
