So, I read 60 books this month which I think is good, but I’m seriously thinking about slowing down on reading books just because it’s kind of boring to have to line up all the books I read that month, okay I was just kidding. When it comes to my real life, I don’t have much to update you guys on other than telling you that I’m going on holiday in September so you might get some travel blogs from me.

Here are some of the posts I enjoy writing this month:

Life

I read 41 books this month, which is good. As you guys know, I went to my new endocrinologist, and I was treated better compared to my other two endocrinologists. I do have a long way to go in this process so sending me good vibes won’t hurt. I made the decision to keep my medical results private, or at least private for now.

This month I read 44 books, which is typical for me. I decided to tell you what happened this month, so here we go. This month didn’t start so high, the family had to say farewell to Abby, our dog, and that made the whole feel lost. It was time to face one of my fears head on, I returned to a hair salon, in this case, a barbershop after a lot of anxiety I did it, and it changed the way I look at myself. The magic of a haircut!

I’ve been able to stay in my “happy place.” The reason is I was able to find my comfort zone and got me through hard times, including being sick with a chest infection. A few days ago I got a text from this person saying that I’m “toxic” person, I don’t think I’m but if I ever hurt anyone I’m sorry harming or triggering anyone isn’t my aim in life.

I’m meeting my third endocrinologist on the 24th this month so wish me because I’m scared of the unknown and that my case is rejected but, I’m not going to give up because I know I’m a man and that’s what’s important to me.
