Why not just discuss health related topics in the Diner where such discussions are not off-limits and there is plenty of experience there with health or lack thereof as it relates to model railroading?

You've been a member of the Forums since 2004 and contributed more than 4,000 posts, and you've never heard of the Diner? You're pulling my leg, right? Wink

Jeffrey's Trackside Diner is the designated off-topic thread on the MR Forums. You'll find it in the General Discussion (Model Railroader) Forum, often near the top of the first page. You (and everyone else) are welcome to discuss any topic you like in the Diner, as long as it doesn't violate other Forum rules like the prohibition on advertising, religion, politics, etc. This month's Diner thread is here: http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/88/t/265400.aspx

I didn't mean to start a roll call of personal illnesses. 

2 months ago I put on a new KD coupler spring, there was no way I could have done that last week before my procedure.  The changes were insidious and vision is not just convenient to model railroading, it's pretty darn essential.

Besides we educated someone to the existence of the Diner.  Consider it a Public Service thread Steve. 

 Ed join us in the Diner, we are talking about Shingles today.

Jeffrey's Trackside Diner...

 

 

Oh, that!  Never clicked with me.  Maybe I'll visit.  I figure I won't catch anything, as I got my first shingles shot a month ago.  Of course, there's still rabies--I figure that's where the term "rabid railfan" came from.
