    I haven't been here for over a month. At the beginning of March something happened to my right eye, becoming red, watery, I couldn't look at anything bright, even a screen turned down to the lowest setting was still too bright. I didn't start to get better until a couple of weeks ago. Now it seems to be almost back to normal, at least I'm now able to read text on screen for more than a couple of seconds, but I think I've lost some vision. I couldn't go to a doctor.

    Nice that you're back.
    Any reason you couldn't go do a doc?

    Finally back after 7 years. Thought I was going to have to make a new profile.

    Please remember that if you do it ramming through the front of the mods' lounge with a car and then hit their fridge they'll get nasty.

    My presence will likely be spotty over the summer, as I'm trying to do some home improvement projects with the time I would ordinarily squander here.

    Far too many times I get the feeling that I do not belong here. Not yet sure what to do about that. Tomorrow will tell I guess.

    What makes you feel like that? (She said, breaking the rule about this not being a conversation thread.)

    I feel like you belong here. For whatever that is worth.

    That's by and large on me and who I am. Just to be clear; CFC is far more civil than during my last stint here. Even moderators are now sufferable ;)

    Thanks for the kind words. Oddly enough this is worth a lot since we really have no extensive 'posting history' :)

    I will however take a step back and watch from a distance. Don't know for how long.

    I'm taking a break. I don't like what this place has become over the last couple of years, and I don't like my relationship to it. Hopefully both can change in future.

    Fwiw, I hope you soon return. No one has more of a right to honestly express their view than anyone else, and some seem to be incapable of realizing that.
