Pray for Scott whose pain soothed my fears. 

It’s 8:48 am Egypt time; I am here ☝️ 

Both my ears hurt really bad with the left one semi deaf from pool swimming.

The surrounding world is still asleep hence my favorite time of the day.

I will be 35 soon, November 11th to be exact (a GoPro 🎁 will be very much appreciated)

As it’s the middle of my life, it was about time I experience mid-life crisis like everyone else.

I lost a woman I loved, I lost money, I lost my passports, my Green Card, my laptop, my friends, my job, my relationship with God, my sanity and I lost the spark I had for life.

The interesting thing is they all happened in a ripple effect, one after the other in a very short span of time, about two months.

Earlier in January of this year, the same things happened but in reverse.

I fell in love with a woman, I made so much money, I got an online job, I made new friends and I was as happy as I could have ever been.

The dream I drew in my head throughout my upbringing came true.

A woman. Money. Health. Friends. Traveling. A writing job.

In a nutshell it was the whole nine yards life I always wanted.

During the last two months, I lost all of that, as if they never happened in the first place.

Accepting such reality was harder than anything I have been through; I tried everything.

While I was browsing through medium’s articles last night, I came across this one by Scott Riddle “I’m 35 and I may suddenly have lost the rest of my life. I’m panicking, just a bit.

That article was a smack straight to my face.

I realized that everything I lost is trivial to losing one’s health.

Money comes and goes, materials can be replaced, losing a woman happens.

But health?!

If you ever see a healthy human complaining about what’s gone into their life and how they can make it better, please refer them to Scott Riddle’s article.

God Bless you Scott.

💚

my name is sherif and I pray for Scott.
