    Well turns out I have a condition known as "Giant Cell Arteryitus".
    It is inflamation of all my blood vessels.
    I started having vision problems and went to eye Dr who did my eye surgery.
    He checked my eyes and sent me straight to ER.
    They admitted me and I spent 3 days in hosp.
    All kinds of tests and started treatment for this problem.
    I now have my apatite back and am getting better.

    Thank you everyone , you have helped more then you know.

    Its a long process, but I will beat it.
    Dr says it could take up to a year!

    THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!!!

        Wow Mike! Glad the docs found the problem. Sounds like it could have been serious if left untreated. Did they put you on meds, or do you have to go do some sort of treatments? I'm guessing the closest good sized hospital is Chattanooga! Glad you're back! :)

        Glad you are feeling better. All i know is getting old isn't for sissies, you better be tough.
        I had an issue of sight loss in a corner of one eye.
        It was a TIA Stroke in my brain. My eye Dr. sent me to the ER and that's where they found it.
        Stay Strong and Healthy, Welcome back.
