Lol, you know I actually do want to work out. And i've been wanting to for a while. I even have a weight bench in my bedroom that I bought when I was working. The problem is, because of a couple of corneal transplant surgeries I got, I could work out like that, because it was dangerous. But now I can work out, but I was too lazy plus I was going to class.
Make no mistake about me socially lol, in my recent summer class[July] it was agreed by my classmates and professor that I was the 3rd most talkative in class. Not talking nonsense, I mean participating. So it's not that i'm shy socially, I do talk to people. Where I suffer is, actually telling a girl I like her. I could talk to her, but never ask her out or tell her I like her. Because of my hair loss. That's what I meant with hair loss has ruined my social life. Girls could show interest in me, and i'd still, and they do, but I shy away out of fear "What if they see me without my cap...aw sh-t!"
At this point I just feel like, the only thing worse that can happen to me is death, or death of a parent/sibling[god forbid]. College is my only way of coping with this life of mine, is the only thing I got going for me. You take that away from me, i'm done.
No matter who's helping you, that's fine. You're lucky your mother can help you, i'm seriously like poor man lol. My mother is poor too, and my dad even if he had the money, he wouldn't help me. There's no way I can get an HT right now. I get financial aid from the government for college, I wish I could use that money[the refund you get after tuition is paid] and save it up for a small HT of about 1300-1500 grafts. But I know better, that's college money, you know? I need it for personal expenses that pertain to college. Like books, transportation, food, and save up for any out-of-pocket costs for when I move away to a dorm in university in a year or 2.
I can only imagine how you feel at 27. I'm 23 and if you can picture this: The worst of hair loss has already happened to me, the whole psychological effect, the social life taking a hit, depression, lack of confidence, vitiligo, alopecia areata, blindness. I went through all of that at such a young age.
The reason people thought that was because Floyd himself through his doctors, from jail said that the food in jail is jeopardizing his normal daily diet and he claimed to be malnurtured in there. He claimed jail was hurting his boxing career. His doctors claimed they were concerned with his dehydrated look and loss of muscle tone when they saw him.
The only thing I can think of that gave me those new tiny hairs is clobetasol propionate ointment that i'm using to treat my alopecia areata. I'm using on that exact side of my hairline.
That's cool man, that you have that option. Lol I don't, i'm poor as hell. Go for it and hopefully you can put hairloss in your past. I would do the exact same thing if I had the money[get an HT] not with Gho though, a surgeon from NY.
I'm fine. Just finished taking a 1 month long summer class and passed a couple of other placement tests in the summer. Starting college as a freshman on August 27th. How are you?
No, I haven't been following the Olympics. I've read some bad decisions have happened for the USA team. Olympic style boxing is nothing like pro boxing. All of these guys in the USA team would be good pro boxers. Even Floyd Mayweather Jr has a loss in the Olympics. That's how you know the scoring system sucks.
Have you read about 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather's TMT Promotions? The Money Team Promotions, have only been around for one week and they have already signed Yuriorkis Gamboa, Andre Dirrell, Andre Berto, Zab Judah, Celestino Caballero, and Billy Dib. That's a pretty good start for only the first week of being a promoter.
Yeah, Canelo vs Lopez is a mismatch. I guess it's the right thing to do, since he beat the guy that was going to get Canelo. He gets the pay day. But it's a mismatch.
You never know though, anything can happen in boxing. Remember he's going up one weight class, not 2 or 3. History has shown us that mismatches can turn in to big upsets, time after time. Or at least ending up as a better match than expected.
