1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    A friend has MS, think it is the remitting type rather than degenerative; she’s pretty much given up drinking as it wipe her out for days. Best of luck.

    So sorry to hear about this. We have a friend who has MS and sadly her son who is a father to two boys, a 3 year old and a 6 month old, also has MS. We seen both going through different treatment regimes. I can't hope to understand what you are going through at the moment. You have my sympathies, I hope the treatment is effective for your condition.

    Thanks mate. My neurologist is one of the very best specialists in Europe so yes the future is (probably) bright!

    gosh that's one of the most shocking posts I have read for a while . No wonder it haunts you .

    I know a few folks whose lives were totally wrecked by car accidents. Several in taxis when driver on mobile . Caused real permanent damage

    Despite very good vision with specs, I've never been able to see those things. I do get a sort of layered 3D effect, but that's it.

    I have no words.

    I feel humbled. I've got my issues, but it seems to me that many of you are dealing with more serious issues with a much better attitude. A much needed plethora of good examples, precisely when I needed them.

    I shall pull my socks up!

    Suffolk Tony Aim low, achieve your goals, avoid disappointment.

    Before I needed specs, I had no problem seeing these, but now, no matter what I try, I just can't any more. the first time I saw these was in the USA, & I bought a large one to hang in my office. It was amusing to watch folk trying to see the blessed things - a few swore blind it was all a hoax.

    Sorry to learn your news Mr chartz, it's a damn nuisance. I wish you well, and fingers crossed the efforts that have gone into treating covid 19 will result in spin-offs for other forms of illness.

    My now deceased sister in law Pearl, bought new wall paper for her kitchen what I saw was flowers leaping from the wall, after a bit so did she, the wall paper lasted just two weeks and was gone. Now when I buy or want to put up wall paper I check it out, because ducking a diving away from killer flowers in the kitchen ain't fun.

    I see the words ‘you lost the game’ and behind that a colourful background pattern.
    You have to look through the screen as it were into infinity with your eyes relaxed.
    Also sometimes works if you bring the screen right up to your eyes and slowly move it away.

    This is my current dread, although I am now older than both my father and his father which is promising.

    We were at school together in the same year...

    I find focusing on a spot behind the screen is the solution to seeing these pictures.

    Very sorry to hear of that, Jacques. On top of all the other health issues you have had...
    Good to hear that you have an excellent neurologist, hope he can do something good for you. Best wishes for the treatment and bon courage.
