Heard from Tim


Posted by Shirley-Arkansas-USA , Oct 12,2001,21:33   Archive
Hi, my friends. I just heard from our friend Tim, whom some of us met at the conference this year. He is having lots of problems with his eyes and is getting very little relief from his botox injections or his medication. I just thought that you would like to know. He hasn't been able to read the bb in over a month now. So, he is not just out there lurking like he used to.

I don't know, my heart just goes out to him and I really want something to work for him to help him with this damn (scuse me) disorder. I'm frustrated. Put your positive thoughts together and quietly wish him well. If you met him, you know what a wonderful person he is and what a loving and supportive wife he has.

Shirley in AR. wishing Tim well

Tim, we all certainly hope you can find some help & feel better soon. Botox doesn't seem to help me much anymore (Dr. increased the dosage Oct 4), but the clonazepam does, which I'm very thankful for. I've also started taking magnesium with calcium . Not sure it helps, but hasn't caused me any problems oterwise.
Joann whee it's a rainy day in ARK.

If Tim hasn't been readint the b.b. for a month how can we conivince

to try? Does anyone know his address or e-mail or phone number?

Incidentally Tim Zoloft along with klonopin has helped me a lot.

There are a lot of drugs left to be tried. Good luck and success.

We care, Ann D.

Hi Ann,
It is not a matter of him not wanting to read or post on the bb. Although he did that for two years. He is not able to at this time because his eyes have been so bad. I think that he is managing to use any good eye time that he has for his work and things that he has to get done. I'm sure that he will get back on when he can.
I just wanted some positive thoughts and prayers being sent his way whether he is aware of it or not.

Hey Tim,

I've been thinking about you and your wife and sending positive energy. If you send me your e-mail I will send you a pic of you and your sweetie from the BEB conference.

Shirley, If we wrote in larger print, could he ,Tim,read it and how do we do it? I just tried fonts and larger and nothing happened. I would be a basket case without the b.b. Ann D,

Re: Enlarging Font size for easier reading

Ann, Tim has to enlarge the font size at his own computer and I'm sure that he has done that like most of us have. When you adjust your font size, you are just adjusting it for yourself and it will not make a difference on the bb. Everyone has to adjust that for themselves. Mine is blown up really large and I have a 19 inch monitor which also helps.
For those of you that aren't sure how to do this, I have Microsoft Internet Explorer and I click on "View" at the top of the page and then go to "Text Size" and then click on "largest".
I'm not sure how to do this with other systems.

My heart goes out to anyone who is having such difficulty with this dumb "disorder". He's on my prayer list.

Thanks for keeping us updated. I know at the conference, he was looking for another doctor and also beginning to consider surgery. Did he mention either? A change in doctor can make a big difference.

I'll send whatever positive vibes I can muster up that direction. It's so gloomy here, that they may get used up on the way, but I'll give it my best shot. I enjoyed meeting Tim and his wife - Alan, Tim is a gardener, too.

Thanks for the update Shirley.
I'm thinking Tim's wife can read our prayers and support to Tim.
Even those that don't post, I'm sure are wishing him the same.
Tim, although it's hard, what you are experiencing is not uncommon
at all. If that makes you feel any better, knowing you'r not alone.
Keep strong, better days are ahead.
There are many meds out there to try.
I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless,
Mindy in NY

Shirley, thanks for the info re Tim. I am really sorry to hear he is having such difficulties. I know he was hoping for some relief this last go-around of injections(by the way for which he had to make two separate visits to the Dr. as his insurance only allowed the Dr. to do one eye at a time!!) I will be praying for Tim so he can continue his
work and that God would provide him direction and relief from this
disorder. Joanne M. San Diego, CA
