    No, I'm fine most of the time. I'm just cutting more than usual today.  But that's pretty normal for me. I don't throw any of my cuttings away.. I make doll clothes and was thinking of making a rag rug. I also cut tags from everything, cut my hair frequently. I move things around constantly, things on the table or furniture. I count things in threes, pair things up, and try to reach perfection on small tasks that should take 5 minutes, that can take 50 minutes. I am a handwasher, and teeth brusher. I crochet for relaxation, color, and play with my dolls. We had an earthquake 2.3. Chattanooga, TN. and I've been slightly off balance since. I have ear thumping today, caused by our weather ....... freezing rain. Thank you for asking. about me.
