Whatever you do, don’t get sick
and continue to look good.

First, you will frighten others who
think they could be sick,
even frighten them away.

Second, you may find yourself acting sick to
convince the non-believers.

Third, no one thinks you need help.

You look good.

On the other hand, be glad to look good,
know your doctors believe
your diagnostic test results.

Understand those who love you
won’t leave.
