Is that 22/human or 2/human x 11?

I have friends who play three different characters at a time in an online MMORPG Everquest and use them to argue with themselves. It confuses new people in the guild who actually think that there are 6 people speaking when there are actually only two of them. :lol:

:lol: Without my glasses I don't even see I have a computer in front of me (more or less) and since I don't see a thing without them, it's pretty obvious I can't find them without them so :? . Then someone invented nice daily lenses : now when I can't find my glasses I wear my lenses and with them I can find the glasses!!!!!

I don't have questions of the heart or maybe too many :? the only thing that comes to my mind is How do you make your heart calm down when all of a sudden it goes bumping in your chest so much you can actually feel it without touching your pulse, just standing still and doing nothing else but feeling anxious? I've always managed by waiting: either I faint or it will pass in time, so I wait for time to make it slow down... but sometimes it takes quite a long time.. :?

I don't know where to say this, but it's about love, maybe I can say it here I've finished to read Jane Eyre and it was quite nice and a very happy ending. Of course those books must have a happy ending, I would have burn it if after all those pages the author had given her another new husband! I finished it yesterday night, and it left me a sense of peace I wasn't expecting, nice quiet feeling that helped me falling asleep :) :o :)

When your heart is pumping like that it's because your body has produced adrenalin because something has triggered the need to maybe fight or run away - it's a very primitive survival instinct. Because we can't always do that we become extremely anxious and in some cases we get a 'panic attack'.

There's not much you can do other than recognising it for what it is and convincing yourself that you are going to be ok once your body calms down.

Having a few friends who indulge in target rifle shooting I can confirm that they have learned to properly control their heart rate - taking it down to 1/3 or normal for short periods so that they can improve the accuracy of their shooting. Some claim that they can actually suspend their heart beats for a few critical seconds although I have yet to see that demonstrated.

Actually, to be serious for a moment, I had the same heart thumping problem a few months ago and it was nothing to do with carnal desires or excess activity (at my age? not likely). I'd had swine flu and couldn't understand why I wasn't getting over it and had these odd symptoms like heart-racing for no reason and extreme fatigue. Eventually I convinced the docs to take blood tests and they found a highly increased thyroid activity was to blame for my symptoms. I've been taking carbimazole for a few months now to regulate my thyroid and it's worked to the point that I'm only on the minimum dosage now and no more heart flutters.
It may be a good idea to consult your doctor Crysania....seriously.....!
Anything can trigger a hyperthyroid (viruses can do it) and it's easily managed with medical help.
Statistically 1 in 5 of us can expect to experience some kind of thyroid dysfunction in our lifetime and age is no barrier.
Sorry to depress you all :( but that's how I felt when they told me :shock:

There's a guy I like at work, but don't know his name or anything, so would it be stalkerish yto look on the rota for names I don't know, Facebook them on my Blackberry, and look for certain details to see if I got a chance, then drop their favourite musics into conversation to grab more attention?? :P

No depression here about that. I was misdiagnosed by a jerk doctor for 13 years and almost died of Graves Disease. Ask yer doc if you have Pyrothyridoxase Antibodies. That is what they do to make sure whether it is Graves or another type of thyroid dysfunction. It is important to be sure of what you have. I am sending you a HUGE High Five for making your doctor pay attention to you. That rocks!! :lol: I think you are way 8) for doing that.

Thanks Tina :D It's been a strange 6 months since I had the flu and all those other things started happening but really I have no complaints about the GP or the way I've been treated. The NHS has been very good to me with my problems over the years. I'm having regular blood tests and they all indicated hyperthyroid but the last lot showed that it was calming down so they lowered my dose of carbimazole. I've a hospital appointment in 2 weeks and I'm really hoping that I don't have to have the radioactive iodine treatment they mentioned but I think it's already been decided......there's a node :shock:
Take care xx
