    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    Same thing happened to me. My conservative, old school GP thought I was just being neurotic because I did have a history of depression. He wanted to put me on antidepressants, but I knew it wasn't in my head and that something was physically wrong with me. I was so ill, I had to take medical leave from work because my reflexes were too slow and I couldn't concentrate. I also suffered from severe insomnia and constant anxiety. My brain was so muddled that simple things like setting the table or parking the car were a challenge. The least little thing would make me cry. The doctor finally agreed to test me "if it will make you happy." But by that time my TSH level had shot up to over 130 (normal range was 0.4 - 5.5). Any higher and I would have been in the hospital. I don't know why doctors are so resistant when women report thyroid symptoms, but I imagine it might be that they think we only want thyroid supplements so we can lose weight.

    Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

    Anna has said that the baby will not be named Mary. I'm going to guess they'll pick a name like Macie, Madeline or Morgan.

    DragonFaerie, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your husband fought the good fight, and you were with him every step of the way. What an ordeal you have been through! Please be kind to yourself as you grieve and know that many are thinking of you at this difficult time.

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    My theory is that it's their way of saying, "Hey, look. I'm not fat. I'm pregnant!" Because God forbid that a fundy wife gain weight.

    Is it just me, or does the new Primetimer logo look more like the gay freedom flag than TV color bars?

    Thank you for the birdie cuteness, Christina. Your pictures made me smile. (That Sunny, what a feathered hussy!) 😉 By coincidence, I had just gotten a text message from the woman who took in the lost male budgie I fostered last December. She wanted me to know that he's "the sweetest bird," and she's named him Sky.
  14. The problem with Jessa's makeup is that she should not emphasize both eyes and lips at the same time. It's just too much. The rule is that if you are wearing bright lipstick, downplay your eye makeup. On the other hand, if you go for dramatic eye makeup, you should choose a lighter, more neutral shade of lipstick. The overdone makeup makes Jessa look like a clown or a hooker.

    I always thought that Laurence Olivier would have made a great Ashley. He would have had the acting chops to fake a Southern accent, and he had such charisma that it wouldn't be such a stretch of the imagination to picture Vivien Leigh swooning over him. After all, she was doing that in real life and would soon become Mrs. Olivier.
