Dreading the Annoyance.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a new doctor, a dermatologist. I need him to look at some stuff on my face and tell me if I have skin cancer.

I do not need him to look at the wrinkles, the pimples, the giant pores that rival any middle east nation in their oil-producing capabilities or the spider veins on my cheeks.

I am interested in not having skin cancer. I am not interested in micro-dermabrasion, botox injections, chemical peels or laser treatments.

I am getting older, I understand. I have to be careful with make up settling into the lines under my eyes. I get it. My hormones are flip flopping all over the place, leading to bouts of dry skin and bouts of acne that would rival any teen's. Fine.

I am not interested in spending good money to pretend that I'm still 20 or even 30. Deal with it youth-obsessed America!

I do, however, have one conceit and will be interested in learning how effective and how expensive Vaniqa will be. Because the site is offering a $60.00 coupon and I'm pretty sure it isn't going to be covered by my insurance.

I was never ever beautiful...cute at times...atractive when I was a size 4 but NEVER beautiful....well now I am almost 61 and I am sad because I am overweight....I could walk...I could eat less...and maybe lose a pound or two....or even the 25lbs that I need to lose for my health....but I just don't have the energy....I have the "want to" but NOT the "will too" My step-son is getting married next month and since I have put-off losing this ton-age
I gave in and bought a dress.
I would exchange my pounds for a few wrinkles and large pores....

Pam - we won't talk about the 20 extra pounds I've got hanging out around my middle. I'm lucky that I'm tall and can hide it. But I will say - walk! The energy will come, I promise. Just start small and work your way up.
