1.ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
A 2 inch scar on my upper left shoulder. I got it last year when I had a suspicious mole removed by my doctor. It was just a small punch biopsy, but I kept tearing out the sutures. I don't do so well sitting still. The pathology report came back as containing dysplastic cells. I was sent off to the dermatologist and he found it necessary to re-biopsy the entire area, to be certain to get any potential satellite cells. I'm left with a big, red, ugly scar...But no cancer now, so I'll take it.
2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
I'm in my family room now, so I'll answer using that room. I have quite a few things on the walls in here as it is a fairly large room.
