An important message from Michael Nicklasson was recently posted on the Dark Tranquillity website:

I've gotten some mails and questions concerning my health during this tour, from fans that are worried about my weight loss and my numbness. The thing is that I just got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes one week before this tour, so I just started with insulin. I'm getting a little better day by day and it`s a real struggle for me, but I'm trying to do my best for the band and the fans. I wanted to post this so everyone knows the facts about this. As it is right now my body doesn't work as it´s supposed to and that means that I'm very tired all the time, not having the energy that I used to have...but as written above, I just want to say to those who are worried about me: don't be - ok? Now you know why things are as they are, and I'm getting a little bit better everyday...Thanx for your concerns everyone, I will not give up!

Cheers,
Mickey

Michael I thought you might like to know about an The Diabetes On Line Community. We are bloggers who all write about diabetes and all sorts of other things in our lives! It is nice to have a group of people who share similar experiences, to whom our vocabulary of T1 / T2 / hypos / etc need not be explained. If you ever feel a little lonely with diabetes drop by. My blog is at http://chrissieinbelgium.blogspot.com and there is a direct link to other blogs at the Diabetes On Line Community. The community is great - it is a place to share our accomplishments, worries and frustrations. We laugh, cry and rant together!
