Hi, Mrs. Roy! Sorry to hear about your Hashimoto’s disease — my father and Deb’s mom both had hypothyroidism, and dealing with side effects while keeping up with the adjustments to the meds was never fun. I hope things go better, Karen, and it just becomes Yet Another Thing you deal with. {{{***hugs***}}}

So your hubs wants me to encourage you to write about your OCD. Sure, he could take a stab at it, but you know he won’t ever get it quite right. And now that he’s home more (I don’t know what downstate Illinois is up to, isolation-wise, but I would guess he’s working from home) you can have him take on more household tasks while you write (ROY: “I’m supposed to be remote working!” YOU: “Reading Medium is not working!” ROY: “What exactly do you think I was doing all day at the office?”) which I think would be good for him.

Hey, he could home-school the girls! (Not to worry, you’ll be able to get them sorted out later.)
