In which I do not over-share.

I’ve been trying to post regularly (usually Wednesdays and Fridays or Saturdays), but I’ve not been feeling well this week, so I have nothing interesting to blog about at present.

How I feel: indisposed and boring.
Feeling indisposed and boring.

In my everyday life, with family and friends, I’m usually quite willing to share (and hear) details of illness, injury, or medical mystery. I suspect it’s because of the pre-med biology background of my early undergrad years. Or maybe it’s just my lifelong fascination with the human body, everything wonderful it can do, and all the things that can go wrong with it.  There is very little I personally consider to be Too Much Information, medically speaking.

However, the first rule of Library Blog is: you do not talk about Library Blog you do not share TMI with unsuspecting readers. Suffice it to say that I saw the doctor yesterday and expect to soon be on the mend. In my next post I’ll (hopefully) be ready to reveal details on a fun new librarian-related project I’ll be presenting as part of my Adventures.

In the meantime, to help me deal with the misery of [Redacted to avoid TMI], please tell me whether you’re more of a “Tell me everything!” or an “I didn’t need to know that!’ person.

    I hope you feel better very soon, Heather. It depends, but I think I’m mostly a spare me the details type of person.

    I hope you feel better soon! I noticed you were out this week, and was worried!

    I’m usually a “tell me anything” with medical stuff (and life). I don’t want to see pictures, necessarily, but reading or talking about explicit medical stuff is totally fine.

    Is it the dysentery? You can tell me. Really.

    But, in all seriousness, hoping you feel better soon!

      It is not not the dysentery. Or cholera. This time. I promise I would tell you if it were.

        Then it’s the plague, obviously. See a leech and hope for the best!

    I hope you’re feeling better! I waver between Tell Me Everything and I Don’t Need To Know. It depends.

    I’m not a huge fan of bodily fluid stories but other than that, I’m happy to hear details. Hope you’re feeling better by now:-)

      Thanks. But still not feeling better. 😦 Whined about it in today’s blog post, though. 🙂
