Here's an amazing helpful insight into how to talk to MDs about your health issues. I don't know how much this would have helped me when I was searching for help, seeing as how standard western medical treatment of my eventual diagnosis doesn't differ from the standard western medical treatment for my misdiagnosis back when I was relying on standard western medicine (standard western medicine can generally go fuck itself), but I'm certainly going to try this if/when I have future problems unrelated to Hashimoto's disease.

In the Paleo world (I still use the term Paleo to describe how I eat even though I know it's not accurate and sometimes Paleo people are assholes and sanctimonious but so are Feminists and Vegetarians and anyone else who belongs to a group larger than one person) there's a certain amount of...disdain? disapproval? of sweeteners. Which I completely understand. They can set off addiction cravings--even the "natural" ones like honey. Or stevia. But you know what? I'm not allergic to stevia (like I am a billion other things) and a few drops in my morning tea don't set off cravings for me, so I'm having the fucking stevia in my morning tea. Until I'm convinced that those ten or so drops, total, spread over my two cups of tea a day, are hindering my health goals? FUCK YOUR RULES.

The change in price on my bloomers meant I sold six of them yesterday. Six sales! That's more than I've had total this year. The goal of the store was to help me decrease my (enormous) stash of quilting and novelty cottons. Maybe I should keep this price? It means I wouldn't be compensated 100% for materials, but hell, some of these fabrics I purchased over ten years ago. Does it really matter that I get full price for the materials? I'm a vocal proponent of not doing things for free and always getting paid what you're worth, but if marking them ten dollars less per pair is better helping me achieve the goal of getting this stuff out of my house? Might be worth sacrificing my principles a bit. Any thoughts?

I've been awake for two hours, mousing around the house to keep from waking [livejournal.com profile] mckitterick, but now I am starving and out of things to do quietly. Wake up, [livejournal.com profile] mckitterick! I know you've had a super-rough week with not enough sleep and too many obligations but COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
