Oh, puh-lease...it's not that bad...my Great-Uncle was a writer; he did pretty well (heard of Tenida?) Look at John Grisham...you'll be a millionaire soon (I'm prophesying as an oracular reader)...obesity...well, "weight is great" unless you plan to participate in a beauty contest...for the rest of the things...well...that's not only for writers; everyone decent, some time or the other, goes through it...
