      Father God, I pray for the health of my friend Markku to recover. I ask that you will intervene
      for Him, in the name of Jesus! Please multiply your grace and mercy to Him; and bring about
      a speedy recovery!

      Good morning Markku. I hope life has been good for you lately. Things are still up and down for me. My tinnitus has continued to be intermittent; 2/3 of the time it does not bother me, and 1/3 of the time it does somewhat. I am continuing to be bi-vocational at the moment; but I am preaching all over the country, LOL. Ttyl!

        Hi Joe! Long time no hear. I have had some quite unfortunate developments health wise, but still making it one day at a time!

        Very glad you are doing well. Keep in touch.

      Hi, I was wondering if there is an option to sort threads by dated created? It seems the only option is by last message. Is that just because I'm on my phone or?

      Btw I also love Israel version of somewhere over the rainbow :)

        Yes, on mobile the selections are truncated on the top of thread listings, but on desktop/laptop/tablet view you have the following options to sort by:

        Title / Start Date / Replies / Views / Last Message

        But even on mobile devices you should have the "Thread Display Options" — it's found on the bottom of each forum category. Once you click on that, you can select to sort by Thread creation date.

      Hey Markku, So sorry to hear things have been so troublesome! Father God, I pray for my friend Markku in the name of Jesus. I ask that you will multiply your grace, and mercy, and compassion to Him, and grant Him some deliverance! Please answer my prayer starting now; to show Him the reality of your awesome power! Amen!

        I just saw a Retina specialist. I have a 'floater' that hasn't broken apart yet. It is obstructing my vision in one eye. @Markku you are absolutely right - no one can truly appreciate how life changing they can be.

        Yet? Floaters don't really break apart. If it's obstructing your vision you might be YAG laser candidate to break into smaller pieces, but idk the success rate

        The doctor said it would break up and become friends with all the other floaters in my eye. Maybe that's why he wants to see me again. :-(

      Hey Markku, I hope life is well for you. Its been awhile since we have spoken. I had a rough patch over the Winter with the tinnitus; however lately I was well about 27 out of 34 days. That is about as good as it gets without being cured!
      Let me know how its going?

        I'm glad you've had a longer better period. Do you keep a tinnitus journal or how do you remember so exactly how many good days you've had? I'm not doing well, Joe, my tinnitus is really intrusive and these days I'm more and more bothered by my vision issues. I'm sad life brought these afflictions my way. Let's keep in touch — take care.
