the wisdom to know the difference.

i'm not religious, and i'm not an alcoholic, but i think the serenity prayer is a sweet way to keep shit in check. i think this is pretty sweet, and alopecia appropriate, too:
for every ailment under the sun
there is a remedy, or there is none;
if there be one, try to find it;
if there be none, never mind it.

since my diagnosis 13 years ago, i've seen 5 doctors, 2 specialists (dermatologists) 2 naturopaths, 1 homeopath and 1 herbalist. so far, none of them have been able to cure my alopecia areata. i haven't exhausted every option yet, but at a certain point, i think i'll just have to accept that this is the way it is and find comfort in the fact that i don't have all my hair, but i have my health (which is already a pretty comforting thought). anyway, i think this poem hits the mark.
