Belated Update

I’m properly abashed at how far behind I am on the queue. Many apologies. I promise to work on it some when I go home for the holidays.

Speaking of which, I’ve gone back to university! We’ll see how long it lasts, but I’m hopeful.

As for health updates: I’m on-and-off in a wheelchair, but able to go to class. I’ve been diagnosed with Fibro, MCS and Coeliac disease, but am still being tested for whatever else it is I have, because apparently if you get one thing you also get everything else. Lyme disease is currently a possibility, but there is also a long list of other possibilities which I won’t subject you to.

Once again, I’d like to thank all of you for your support and readership. I won’t out the person who sent me the following picture, but it meant a great deal to me, so without your permission I’m sharing it with everyone to let you know that I’m doing okay.

  1. Good luck with your health and studies. I have found your writings very helpful personally and wanted to thank you for them.


  2. I hope that you get well soon, Arvid.
    Your blog has meant a lot to me in the last few months, and I basically owe everything I know about MBTI to you.
    There isn’t much I can do for you, but you are in my prayers. Get well soon :)


  3. I’m glad that your doctors have made at least some progress in finding a diagnosis. It’s good to hear that you’re living as much of a normal life as you can, considering the circumstances. Hopefully, it’ll all get better from here on out.

    Let me know if you want my help at all with this site. My time has been limited for the past few months, but I’ll do what I can to help out if you just say the word.


  4. It’s unspeakably wonderful to read something from you again :) Especially as it’s more or less a message of hope. I’m very happy to hear you managed to get back to university and are being diagnosed. I’m sure you cope marvellously with all the difficulties caused by your conditions. I wish you fast final diagnosis and succesful treatment. Also lots of successes at the university and in every other field! My thoughts and prayers are with you.


  5. I’m glad to hear that the doctors have made some progress, at least, on identifying your health problems. Best wishes toward your continued recovery.


  6. I feel sorry for everything you have been through and I pray that you will get well soon. I understand what it’s like to be unable to predict when you can or cannot do tasks–fighting diseases like these–and the frustrations that come when you’re trying to pinpoint the underlying cause for the disease from numerous diagnoses.
    Be strong and don’t lose courage or hope! We will always support you, even if some/most of us have never seen you in person.


  7. I’m glad you’re doing better. Praying that they’ll find whatever else and that you’ll keep doing better. Bless you


  8. I’m glad you’re finally getting answers (even if they weren’t great ones)! Also, yay for you for finding ways to cope and feeling well enough to do stuff. May it last!


  9. I’m so glad you’re able to try university again–I know how much learning means to you, so that’s wonderful! Take it easy, though, and don’t work too hard. I’ll keep praying for your health; and I fully endorse the sentiments expressed in the photo!!!

    (I’m almost done with my first semester of graduate school, which means that after just 3 more semesters I’ll graduate with my master’s degree . . . a scary thought. Yikes.)
