    hi to all

    i am sorry ni have not been around for the last 6 week, but i have been very ill, as well as an infection in both my7 eyes that have made it near impossible for me to look at the PC screen as it was too too bright, i have been losing unnatural amounts of weight, 4 stone in 3 months), this has made me quite week and tired, i am still losing the weight and tests are ongoing, but i can say with the help ofr light sunglasses i can see the monitor, but struggle to see the letters on the keyboard lol

    i would like all to know, i have not been staying away because of anything happening on this site, i do love it here and the people, but my actual stamp collection has had to take a place on the back burner while the tests are heppening, and i will be around more all be it just commenting on threads and helping where i can, but no stamps to be shown the wife has made me pack them up, as we will be looking to move soon as well lol.

    The welcome packs will have to stop from me for a while, i will amend that thread shortly until i can get myself well enough to start sorting again

    so you will see a bit more nof me on here now as the weeks progress

    I hope the doctors get this figured out soon...and it is good to have you back even if on a more limited basis. Don't stay away from your stamps too my opinion, a lack of philately is a health risk as well...just sayin'...

    STEVE- I just recently seen a documentary of sorts on a parasite that sounds like what your going through and you have been in Thailand correct? Well his guy had an infection in both of his eyes and was losing weight very badly. The Doctors were stumped until a weird series of events caused the issue to reveal itself. It was a type of worm- a very little worm that gets in behind the eyeball and basically got suffocated out. Here's how: They was treating the eye infection with gauze and medications and I guess the worm suffocated and that's how they found it. My wife says the show is called Mystery diagnosis and is a T.V. series here in the USA.

    I'd rather be wrong and have tried than have done nothing and something worse happens. -Jay

    I'm happy to have you here with us Steve, even if its for a small comment here and there. Hope everything works out for you, and good luck friend!!

    If we are planning on sending you any stamps soon, should we wait until the move to the new address?

    Hi Steve!
    Sorry to hear that you are having some health issues.
    I'm sure that everyone from the forums will agree you are a very upbeat guy, so stay positive and don't feel downhearted.

    It will come and go before you know it.
    I'm looking forward to hearing your are back to normal!

    Get well soon,
    From Cormac on behalf of the Irish!

    I am sorry to hear about you illness my friend. But I think Dr. Jay may be on to something here. His possible cause might be closer then Dr. Bionics and his 14 eye balls.:confused:

    Wishing you well in your recovery.

    Sometimes (me thinks) world-wide travel is fraught with many hazards, and you may have just discovered / experienced another one of them that tells me 'stay home and enjoy life to its fullest'.

    Not to make light of Steve's illness but am I the only one who is chuckling while imagining Steve sitting at his desk with a pair of sunglasses on staring at his computer? I hope you all will forgive my somewhat off-color sense of humor...
