Happy Liver Day (Doesn’t that sound better than Labor Day?)

One of the aggravating aspects of hepatitis C treatment is when people say, “But you look so good!” This is often said in a defiant, questioning tone, which is open to interpretation. Are they saying, “Are you really feeling bad, because after all, you look fine?” Did they think I was lying when I said I felt like crap?

I like what Jean Kerr said about beauty, “I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?” Now that’s a woman after my own liver.
