7 Quick Takes - Vol. 11



Wow!  It's been a month since the last time I participated in the Quick Takes carnival.  It does't seem that long, but then a lot has happened since then.  I went to the ER a couple of weeks ago because my heart was racing, and it seems I have hyperthyroidism.  More than likely I have Graves' disease, which is an auto-immune disease that causes over-active thyroid.

Now, I'm not saying I'm glad I have this condition, because I'm not.  I'm not looking forward to being a daily medicine taker for the rest of my life, for one thing.  But, I am very happy to know that the tremors, racing heart, heat intolerance, and panic-attacks all have an actual cause (read: NOT hypochondria), and it's fairly easy to treat.  Ain't medical science grand?

That smile?  Soooo not how I was really feeling.  I was one sick girlie.
I've always loved the idea of a home library.  My ideal home library
