This n That #7

I'm getting ready to go to Philadelphia to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza,and I can't wait!
So much to do before then!
I'm planning to redesign my main website soon, so that should be completed by the end of the month.
I have a Halloween costume to plan, and I'm expecting this to take up a good chunk of September and October's sewing time.
My sister and I attended the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago this past weekend, and we both got come crafty mojo. Not many booths selling what we are looking for however.... Sublime Stitching, her favorite, was not there. There were barely any quilts. I did see some bloggers that I follow, like The Small Object, Foundling, and 16 Sparrows. I thought the show was way too heavy on silkscreened t-shirts. In all, it was a good craft show. I bought a fair amount of cool stuff.
I've been recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and my new medication has not leveled out yet, so I have the typical fatigue associated with the disease. I can't wait to get my energy back. Judy Coates Perez has the same thing and recently discussed this on her blog. I may think about switching from synthetic thyroid hormone to natural if I can't get these levels to normalize soon.
Football season has started, and so has the fall tv seasons. So much to watch and so little time to do it!

Hi Cheryl, you have two options to help your thyroid, the first is to have your doctor add cytomel to your prescription, that will help a lot with the energy. I took it for several months this fall in addition to the synthetic thyroid. It is the only way I survived teaching in Houston.

My preference is to go natural though and I found that you can order natural thyroid (manufacturer is ERFA) from Canada online. You will need to fax a prescription to the company and then you can get it mailed to you.

I feel like the canadian thyroid is pretty similar to Armour. The armour still worked better addressing my daughter Nina's skin problems, but the canadian is helping tremendously with the energy issues. The synthetic stuff never worked for her, even with the cytomel it was like she was taking no meds at all. The canadian thyroid works fine for me.

I ordered thyroid form here but then found this site was cheaper

good luck
