Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Stay in touch with 43 thing friends :-)
Hi guys :)

I know I have been absent from 43T for about a year. However I happened to pop in today and have gotten a few messages from some wonderful people I consider friends. I have met a lot of warm and inspiring people through this website and would love to keep in touch. I have always felt welcome here and for that I am grateful. Feel free to send me a message and I will give my email to stay in touch. Love to you all❤️

reflect daily in a 'one sentence' journal (read all 286 entries…)

Always grateful for a beautiful day.

get a proper diagnosis (read all 15 entries…)

I haven’t posted an update in a while and thought I would share how I’ve been doing. I still do not have a diagnosis and it has been a huge struggle trying to get one. I have been trying to seek out alternative therapies for the colonoscopy. When I started the prep it did not go well (that can be expected on some levels) but it left me extra weak, nauseous, and downright sick so had to stop half way through.

My GI doctor suspected that I may have SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), among a few other guesses such as diverticulitis, malabsorption, and slow bowel motility. Maybe even Crohns or IBS. IBS seems extremely likely but am not sure yet. It has been a pain trying to get the hydrogen breath test needed through insurance to see if I do have SIBO. I think this test can also diagnose h pylori and carbohydrate malabsorption. I will have to pay for this test out of pocket which I am totally willing to do. You can’t really put a price on health right? I have an appointment next week to discuss this test among a few other things.

The good news is I was able to get 4-5 lbs since I last updated. I did have a flare or episode last Saturday (still going through it but it’s tapering off, hopefully!) that prevented me from hardly eating once again and kept me in the bathroom a good portion of the time but am happy about the weight gain. I am hoping to be able to keep this up and not drop back down again.

I still struggle most days either with eating or bathroom problems. When I have these flares it also sends my anxiety into a frenzy as well, so that is no fun. If anyone has read my anxiety posts then you will know what I mean!

I am remaining optimistic that this will all get sorted out soon. I’ve heard there are a couple alternatives to colonscopy as I mentioned earlier so I will find out about those and update again when I have some new progress/news about this.

Thank you again to everyone who has sent me well wishes and sweet messages over the past few months. They all mean a lot to me!❤
