All the great and brilliant minds who have ever lived were afraid and terrified of something at the very beginning of their journey, but they have found a way to beat that fear, because they've seen the brighter future for humanity. We are all afraid and terrified of making that important next step, or moving out of our comfort zones and facing risks, failures, and various different kind of challenges, but it's something we've simply got to do, if we wish to reach our destiny, the reason why we were born in the first place. There's so many great things and many rewards awaiting you behind your greatest fears, but for as long as you shall be afraid of facing your greatest fears, you won't be able to reach them, hold them in your hands and call them yours.
I found this cross-series collection of novels all dealing with the same enemy but in different ways, in different times and sections of space to be an interesting concept. The separate novels were entertaining and fairly well-written for this type of novel.
I just haven't been able to read lately. Migraines are the worst. So I finally saw a neurologist and he was pretty flabbergasted by why nobody was taking this seriously. He took me off the Topamax and prescribed Aimovig, which is a monthly injection. And of course Tricare put a screeching halt on that, saying it's too expensive and demanding a pre-auth. A pre-authorization is basically the doctor making a case for why I need it, as if the doctor prescribing it isn't enough. Now I'm waiting for my damn insurance to say it's okay for me to have this lifesaving medicine so I can function like a human being again. If anyone ever says the military have good benefits, tell them to bite you. Our insurance is only good if you have a cold or a sinus infection. When there is something really wrong, they lose their shit.
Anyway, I should be listening to my audiobook of Spinning Silver but I don't even have the motivation to start it. I really want to read a lot of these nonfiction books I got. I'm in a slump.
