Why The Recent Lack Of Updates?

by David Peterson 237 comments

Many of you have been emailling me asking why I haven't posted any new tips (particularly in my image editing series) recently.

Want to know why?

Since May, I've had a rather debilitating illness called Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome. It's like Chronic Fatigue, but I haven't had it for long enough for it to be called that. On top of that, the virus that started it also made me sensitive to Fructose (Fructose Malabsorbtion). As a result, I can no longer have wheat or some fruit.

But the biggest problem has been the tiredness. I haven't been in to work in over 2 months, and still can't do a full day at work. So, rather than each photo newsletter taking an afternoon to write and send, it now takes me a few days.

I'm still not completely recovered yet, but am slowly improving each day. Because CFS is a disease of exclusion, the doctors had to run all kinds of tests to ensure it wasn't anything more serious. And although I'm really glad in my case it's not, I also know there are a number of my subscribers (and others in the world) that are less fortunate than me. My thoughts go out to all subscribers with health issues. Let's all get well together!

I'm not saying this to get sympathy (because I know all my subscribers will wish me well), but more to explain the recent lack of updates and delays in answering my email.

But some support by purchasing one of my products would also help :-)

If you'd like to send your 'get well wish', please do so in the comments below, and not by email. Thanks.

    Some how God must have brought me to this site. I typed in digital photo data recovery and this site came up. I too suffer severely from CFS artritis and FM. I went on a trip that I assumed would be my last to Montana to hunt waterfowl. I had two people join me that contacted me through my website. They ended up being UNDERCOVER GAME WARDENS and tried to build a case against me thinking that I was an unlicensed outfitter. Bottom line is that they were crooked as hell and deleted pictures on my digital camera as proof that they were lying. I have to recover the pictures which I know can be done, but I really need the date and time that the pictures were deleted as some proof that they did it. I have learned by the way that FM is much better when I am stress free. I am sure you can imagine how I feel right now. Can you give me direction on getting full recovery of data from my digital camera? Please help if you can.

    Hi David,

    I have never written to you, but I have always appreciated the invaluable information you take the time to share.

    I feel like I know you personally, and I really feel bad that you can't enjoy some of the things you took for granted not so long ago.

    Anyway, life has to go on, and I can see you're the kind of person who takes it by the horns and enjoys it to the fullest.

    Be well, be happy, all the best.

    Taz xx
