Hi, I’m a disabled, queer 27 year old guy from Scotland. My main diagnoses are SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus, or just “lupus”), hEDS (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type), and MDD (major depressive disorder)/borderline bipolar II. (My psychiatrist says I’m borderline for bipolar type II, but I’m not sure if I actually have the explicit diagnosis. His main issue with the diagnosis was that my hypomanic episodes are not long enough.) As the lupus and EDS in particular are systemic, they bring a whole host of secondary diagnoses with them! I use a motorised wheelchair.

I plan for the blog to be mainly about my health, but also to include miscellaneous posts including those for my hobbies (e.g. crochet). I used to have separate blogs for both studying language and crochet, but it was too much to cope with three! I also want to use the blog as more of a journal as I have in the past, i.e. not every post has to be a succinct* set of points with an overall take-away message. (* Relatively succinct. I’m not known anywhere for being short and to the point, lol.)

  1. Hello, I hope you are having a lovely day. I just wanted to drop by to wish you a beautiful, blessed, a memorable holiday season. I hope you are able to take time to rest and reflect this holiday season. Take to reflect about all the ways you have grown as an individual, all you have accomplished, all the blessings in your life, and everything you have overcome the past few months. You, my friend have come so far. And you are an inspiration.
    I pray you would have a flare free Christmas season. I hope that despite your pain you are able to enjoy this season of blessing. Cherish every moment with those you hold dear to your heart. Hold onto the Christmas spirit. I pray that this season would bless you with little to no pain, plenty of spoons, memories, joy, and love. “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.” Thank you for running this beautiful blog and for all you do. Merry Christmas!
