I went to hospital to see my consultant and got told that after 17 Years I can finally come off my immunosuppressant I take for my Crohn’s Disease. Its weird already not taking them along side the others. Every day of my adult life I’ve taken them. Spent just as long taking them as I lived before i was diagnosed. So FUCK YEAH! May my health continue to improve.
I got taken to Claridge’s for Lunch Yesterday. I’d never been. They gave me a cake.
Today was supposed to house party day. But the rain and eves crushing sickness has put paid to that. Curry house table for 10 and then pub it is.
What Would Your Teenaged Self Think Of You?
Post Birthday 2019.
Stopping my autoimmune medication for Crohn’s disease after 17 years.
Had a few meetings with mentors and friends this week too. I think I’ll know the shape of my life soon enough.
I’m on to the Buried Dagger. Book 54 and the LAST book in the series. It might also be one of my fav’s. It humanises one of the main character’s in the series The Primarch of the Death Guard Legion Mortarion. He even cracks a few jokes.
I’ve basically been listening to CALIGULA by LINGUA IGNOTA big thanks to Warren for pointing out that it had come out. It’s a triumph! Incredible album.
I missed posting last weekend due to being super busy with a friends engagement party and the subsequent hangover. It’s Wednesday now and I can barely remember what went on…
*looks at diary*
I had an MRI on Wednesday. Just a general check in after 16 years of Crohn’s Disease. I had to drink a ton of laxatives so that meant the rest of the day hanging out with the squirtle sqaud.
Oh yeah. Had a great time in central on Monday at a social thing full of internet weirdos.
I met with the founder of a super cyberpunk real estate project for Lunch on Friday. Hung out with some old/former colleagues over coffee and then went to see a show and tell from Common Knowledge at newspeak house
Check out Common Knowledge (A not-for-profit workers cooperative) They are Activists and software developers designing platform-level tools to grow the grassroots left.
Having been to their public sprint review, I am extremely impressed at the high level of operation going on in this outfit.
I finished Dune. Not the first one, but book 8 – of the whole main chronicles series. I’ve read all 8 of them since Jan and quite frankly I’m all dune’d out. I have some notes towards doing a podcast on it soon.
I just started reading Tim’s Infinite Detail. It has one hell of an opening.
This performance of Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto no.2 by Anna Fedorova is incredible.
