But that didn't stop a lady using one to pinch some of my blood this afternoon and taping a little bit of cotton wool taped to my arm... although I guess I did ask her to and she was a phlebotomist.
After several people in the past week have mentioned having issues with their thyroids, I thought I would look up what that meant. And the symptoms were rather familiar, so I concluded that I wouldn't lose anything by getting checked out and if I was right then it might explain why, among other things, I am *always* tired, even when I get a decent amount of sleep. So, I was at the GP this afternoon (4:10pm). He said he thought it unlikely, but he sent me for a blood test anyway to check - for TSH, kidney, iron, potassium, sodium, liver and full blood count. I guess he thought while I was there we may as well look at lots of things to check those too. I had to go to the hospital for the blood draw, but they were open until 5 so I thought I may as well go tonight and then I'll get the results back sooner (about a week).
I'm not too worried. I've been tired for nearly as long as I can remember, so if it's simply that I don't get enough sleep then that hasn't changed, and if there's something wrong, it can be treated/fixed, etc.
And Stephanie... Here's how I did my favicon:
First I made a 16x16 pixel image. The maker I linked before is good for doing that.
Then I saved it as favicon.ico. I put mine in the images folder of the website, but you don't have to.
You then need to insert the following code into your Header section of the website: <link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon"> <link rel="icon" href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" /> where the green bit is the location of the picture. I'm not totally sure how or why those work, but they do. I think you need them all because different browsers work in different ways.
I like to be around people, but I'm quite shy. I like to look after people. I like to sing. I like things to be neat, but I don't like throwing things away. I like to discuss with people, but find it hard not to take things personally. I believe that normal's boring. I believe that it will be alright in the end.
