The Hepatitis Comics:
Levity for the Liver

It takes a bit of gall to poke fun at hepatitis. As a nurse, I've seen the wreckage of liver disease and I revere the strength it takes to live with adversity. I have hep C, and I know it isn't exactly a picnic. However, I believe that when it comes to wellness, laughter is better than an apple a day. Just in case I am wrong about this, I eat a lot of apples. Although I endorse going to the doctor, I take a joke book along to survive the waiting room time. I probably should take an apple too so I don't die of starvation during the long wait.
I think that laughter is a worthy pursuit and I invite others to share their stories or witticisms that might amuse those with liver disease. Welcome to The Hepatitis Comics.

Lucinda K. Porter: A Writer's Blog

Although a picture may be worth a thousand words, I prefer to draw with language. Given a choice between a palette or a dictionary, I'd choose the lexicon. A Chinese proverb that better describes my sentiments is, " A book is like a garden carried in the pocket." Blogging is a bit like casting seeds. One never knows what will germinate...
