So I’ve got this hat on today and it always makes me feel pretty. Especially during dreadful doctor appointments like the one that I am currently in. It’s a gastroenterology visit and I’m screaming on the inside because I never walk out of here with good news. Fabio is doing fine so I know that everything is alright in that department. But I’ve got a pretty concerning esophageal hernia that has been giving me quite a hassle so I’m here to see what’s up with that. I absolutely hate these appointments but I’ve got my boyfriend right by my side and my awesome hat so I’ll be okay. I wanted to let you guys know about the book that got me through some of my most important medical appointments. This was back in 2014 when my doctors were trying to figure out what was going on, right before I officially got diagnosed. It’s called The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein. But holy moly, I warn you… CARRY A BOX OF TISSUES. And if you’re an animal lover? Just crawl under your blanket with 3 tubs of ice cream, hot cheetos, and a nice bottle of red wine while you read. It made me laugh, cry, and feel emotions that I hadn’t felt before; but it got me through those tough appointments and I highly recommend it. In fact, I insist! And while you’re at it, get yourself a cute hat. Toodles, I’m up next!
