There are only 2 things to worry about: either you are well or you are sick. If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about; either you will get well or you will die. If you get well, there is nothing to worry about. If you die, there are only 2 things to worry about; either you will go to Heaven or Hell. If you go to Heaven, there is nothing to worry about, but if you go to Hell, you’ll be so damn busy shaking hands with friends, you won’t have time to worry.
