Yeah, this post is gonna be about Pain and me (and maybe some other stuff). It’s not a great topic, but hey, I am getting older and pain is becoming a real daily thing it seems.
Firstly, the shot the pain doc game me did wonders for the spot he shot me in. However, I did not think and he did not suggest that other spots were gonna freak out when I started sitting. So now, as I sit here, I have 3 distinct trigger points going ape on my back. One a little lower than the original, one a little higher on the other side, and then my neck/shoulder one decided it was gonna hurt like hell too. So I called to get an appointment with the pain doc, she was all “we saw you last week”, and I am on the schedule for August 17th. August 17th is a LONG way away, luckily they have a cancellation list and she says I should get in a lot sooner. Let us hope, cuz I don’t want to be in pain for a month and a half.
The second pain is my stomach. Weird thing, not sure what I did or ate. But it has been in pain for a week now. No, it’s not a stomach ache. It’s constant moderate to severeish pain. So, luckily, my regular doc has an opening at 3:15 today. Find out if its some whacked food poisoning or something else. All I know is that I want my stomach to not be in pain.
Oh, the last little pain thing is I can’t sit up in bed anymore. This is gonna make watching TV very difficult. For those that don’t know, we have a 55″ TV at the foot of our bed. Anyhow, this is a new pain. Not a severe pain, just a real annoyance. Sitting propped up was my go to position in life. Now I am gonna sit (uncomfortably, painfully) at my desk, until I can get thing straightened out with the pain doc.
On a cheerier note, Wednesday night D&D is a definite go. Have 5 players now, and 1 more joining in August. It’s gonna be cool. I have the first adventure ready to roll. I can’t tell you about it, cuz Cori is about the only person who reliably reads this blog and she is one of the players. Lets just say, that the party is over geared so I am gonna boost the difficulty of every encounter. I was worried it was gonna be too easy BEFORE I over geared them, now I am sure it’s gonna be too easy. So more monsters are called for. It’s all good.
I have decided, after talking about it for so long, that I am not going to join the gym. I know myself, for a week or two I will go religiously, then other things will come up and I will just stop going. Yup, that is how it always goes. So I am gonna save some money and NOT join the gym.
Still thinking about weight watchers though. I have lost about 9 pounds (according to Dr. scales) since I started eating more and smaller meals. I might just be able to do that to lose my 20 more pounds and not need to bother with weight watchers. I just don’t know.
Pucky and Mojo are confused that I am not in bed all the time anymore. They look for me there and then come find me like wanting me to come back to where I belong. It’s cutely funny.
If money is in my account, today I will be making my first payment towards the cruise. I am so very much looking forward to it and it’s a year and a month and a half away. Alaska in August… Woot Woot. While people are melting here, I will be pulling on a sweater. lol. Yeah, buddy, gonna go on a cruise.
Pre-ordered the Tomb of Annihilation from Amazon, 45 bucks. Little screwy for a D&D adventure book. The price will probably drop here soon though and Amazon always guarantees the lowest price. That will be good. More ideas to steal and warp into my own special world.
We also ordered a new 81″ lamp to light up the computer area. And a new nightstand for my bed, since I moved the desk. These will be here on Wednesday, the 5th. Teresa is gonna have fun putting them together while I run the first D&D session. Amazon got a good chunk of money from us this weekend, but it’s all good. Stuff we need at good prices… well, I didn’t need the Tomb book, but still. More stuff.
Tomorrow I say goodbye to Amazon Prime. And then Hello to Teresa’s Amazon Prime. Yeah, I have been the Prime holder since Prime started but Teresa wants it for some reason and since I don’t use it for anything but free shipping to here. It’s all good, Teresa wants to use some of the features of Prime beyond the free shipping, who am I to argue with the logic of her being the main person. And it just so happens that my account expires of July 4th.
