I've been having some significant health problems; details can be read in my blog. The short version is that I've developed some coordination and speech problems, and an intermittent tremor in my right hand. The Army has done all kinds of tests, but I don't have all the results yet, and still don't know what's causing these problems. Further updates will be posted to my blog as warranted. Thanks for reading.

Just because Canon brings out a new camera there is no need to get sooo excited ;-)

I hope it is not the German beer, that would be a real bummer not to be able to have another drink. Hope it passes quickly (the illness, not the beer that is) and that you are back to full duties asap.

Hey, Jonathan, all the best to you from me here in Spain.

I dont know about you, but I find that too much time on the web can wind my nerves up to a hell of a pitch. I had my first heart adventure some four and a bit years ago after spending an evening exchanging heat with some dodo - as I dont even remember the guys name, it seems such a waste of good time! And health.

Hope you find a reason and a solution soon.

Ciao - Rob C

I've kind of given up on squaring away all of the free-floating stupidity out there; I now look at it as a kind of competitive advantage--the more retards there are out there, the better smart people like me look in comparison...and then there's the whole bit about having more important things to worry about than some fool's stupid internet posting. It will probably be a few weeks before I have a very definitive diagnosis, which is a long time to wait wondering if your whole life has just taken a very unexpected turn, and not knowing if the symptoms are temporary and treatable, or long-term and degenerative. It's very frustrating, much more so than reading some noob posting his cockeyed theories about color management, or the exact same DOF question for the 127th time.

perhaps it's just some chemical imbalance, lack of magnesium or b12 or something from your diet...perhaps spasmophilia, i think that's what it's called...both my acupuncture doctor and my osteopath mentioned this to me...

i've had that the past three or four months, the speech problems, some coordination problems and extreme fatigue...in my case we're thinking it was my diet, lack of certain minerals and vitamins...any major changes in what you eat?...

i went through all kinds of tests too and they found nothing, the only thing that's helped were magnesium supplements and i started seeing someone for acupuncture...i'm just about back to normal these days...

as an aside, several years ago i had some mild hand tremor stuff too, at the time i thought it was just due to my always low blood pressure...i'm not sure it has anything to do with anything but nine months or so later i had my first angioplasty and a stent put in for an artery in my heart that was about 90 percent closed...

the body is a mysterious thing...no matter how good medicine is these days the doctors still do lots of guessing...it isn't very reassuring...they try their best...i'm guessing you have all the best in medicine available to you...

hang in there johnathan...you'll be in my thoughts...

The stent. I have one too; it almost gave me another heart adventure when they told me the price of that tiny little vein-stretcher, 3200, if my memory serves me right! But it works and Im still here, which is what I, at least, think matters most. In the end, the insurance policy paid me back about two-thirds of that, but Id originally been told in the hospital that it wasnt covered and had to be my own purchase.

On another note, you are lucky to live in France; they produce more good photography books than any other country I know about - I had to stop buying PHOTO because of the frustration that all those book reviews created!

Hi Rob...happily, our medical plan here covers everything...i had one stent put in that was 2000 euros...i think it's called drug eluting or something like that...i have three other 'normal' stents and if i remember right they went for about 800 euros each...between the angioplasties and meds i'm lucky our health coverage is so good...i'm 100 percent covered for anything to do with my heart problems...it's reassuring...

years ago, while i was an art director in new york for a big publisher, i bought a subscription to a magazine called Photographies, i often used the images for reference for illustrators or photographers...not only did they have great book reviews but every issue was a treasure of great photographs...I wonder if it's still being published...and yes, so far, living in france is good...

kind regards...

M

and hey, jonathan, keep us posted on your tests, ok?

I think the Spanish state medical system covers most things too, but life here is further complicated by the mixture of private and public medecine. I went into hospital on the private route because a private hospital is fifteen minutes drive away - the state one takes an hour on a good night. I might probably not have survived the journey. So, once in the private system (to which I pay a huge insurance sum) there is little point in moving in and out during events!

However, the state one here is state-of-the-art. If I lived in a big town then perhaps Id forget the private bit, but you have to weigh up the choices in life and not everything comes down to cost.

Best of luck, Jonathan, and lets hope you get a speedy solution to whats amiss.
