After being ill with a variety of syndromes for about 5 months, I (Dave) finally check in with my pals to explain whats going on with me. In the heartfelt dispatch — shot at my West End Vancouver healing pod in front of my beloved bookcase — I express gratitude for all the cards and letters plus show the gratitude scrapbook journal which holds the treasures.
Then i a show an infographic illustration of my various ailments (Central Sensitivity Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome etc.), and send out a request for postcards and vinyl albums.
Soon after a sudden onset of illness leading to a hospital stay and a mortality shock, I (daveo) send a message of hope, affection and greetings to my co-workers and colleagues. I try to explain what happened to me (gastro enteritis problems and shock).
I express gratitude for the treats, care packages, videos and other kindnesses and support sent my way and express my desire to be back soon inventing the future. And how i’m struggling with the blues and going through various treatments and emotional drained from the whole struggling experience.
