Acne at my age

Today I went to the practice of our doctor for a short check up.
I had my blood checked, because I look so pale.
The hemoglobine was OK.

As a child I was a pale one who got a lot of attention to check my health.
I know that each time I had to see my schooldoctor my mother was told I should get more vegetables and fruit and I should eat more spinach.

I loved spinach, especially with an egg or with bacon. I still do.
I always got plenty of fruit and vegetables.

each time my mother had to go to our family doctor until she told the schooldoctor to accept that I was the strongest child she'd ever known and the palest.

When puberty embraced me all I had to ask my doctor was to give me the best treatment for acne.
For a year I looked horrible, but nature became kinder to me and most skinproblems disappeared except for two spots in my face that bugged me ever after.
I've learned to accept them.

Funbny thing is that I've been well preserved during the years. I don't have a lot of wrinkled. Just a few beside my eyes from smiling. It's paybacktime for not sunbathing and not smoking.
The two spots of acne show at times and due to them people think I'm younger than I am.

So who cares?
