In a nutshell.

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.
Who the hell can write about his total life in 150 words?

Conceived before they married, I was born as a heavy baby- eight Dutch pounds. I stayed on the heavy side till recently, after my cancer.

The eldest of five kids, not a nice position to be in. My parents always said they aimed for eleven kids as in a football team. Fortunately they stopped after five.

School and university in one big race, not doing more than needed. Loads of fun, going out in my student days, had (too) many boyfriends. So then I was a doctor, trained to become a Consultant Psychiatrist.

The best thing was meeting my husband (Robert) during my first holiday on my own. Was away for a week, engaged going home, and we married 3 months later. We still are together for better and for worse.

Your Life in 150 words writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write the entire story of your life in no more than 150 words. You can be experimental, creative, funny, serious, provocative, reflective, whatever style you best feel represents your life. You must write about your entire life, not just a moment of it. No poetry (too easy). No fiction (YOUR life), although metaphors are acceptable so long as they are directly interpretable to be about your life. You'll be surprised at what your life looks like in 150 words...
