    Came across this video a friend posted on facebook. Couldn't help but stop everything and watch.

    Really made me think... How about you?

    Its odd that I end up tearing up when I see videos like this. They are so simplistic yet get the point across loud and clear.

    Dear 16 year old me,

    ..oh my dear god, you haven't a clue and what you're about to go through is going to make you the man that's writing this to you. It will all turn out well. Keep your heart and your mind open.

    -Doug

    Genuine smiles and genuine tears on someone are extremely disarming.

    My gosh, I'm nearly in tears.

    Did I miss the part where they said to where SPF everyday?

    More than 50 moles? Check.
    Sunburned often as a kid and young adult? Check.
    Spent 4 years in the tropics only minimally worrying about sun protection? Check.
    Already had basal cell carcinoma? Check.

    I use lots of sunscreen now every day, but it's probably too late. No wonder my derm is so scalpel-happy with the moles. icon_sad.gif
