BretMichaelsRotator.jpgThe ’80s rock star Bret Michaels (frontman of the hair metal group “Poison”) has had major media exposure these past few years.  Some of it is not very “Fresh Living-y,” like his VH1 show “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels,” but some of his public persona–as an advocate for the Type 1 diabetes he’s lived with since age 6–is admirable.

He’s been in the news this past week because he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage last Friday.  Today, news reports say, he has suffered a minor setback that has left him with seizures but still expected to make a full recovery.

All of this brings up a perennial question we’ve posed on Fresh Living – how do you react to celebrity health news?  Does a report like this give you pause in your busy day?  Inspire you to utter a quick prayer for healing?  Hum a few bars of “Every Rose Has Its Thorn?”  Please share your thoughts.

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
