My new shrink is a nice guy

We went to my new Psychiatrists appointment today ready for a fight about meds, and it turns out that he is a nice, reasonable guy and agreed to keep me on my meds with no hassles.  Dr. Eastin even knew about the Region have gotten his Bachelor’s degree from Purdue University.  I won’t hold that against him (much).  Seriously, both Teresa and I liked him.  Teresa was surprised by how thorough his initial questioning was, but having been through 5 or 6 shrinks in my life, I knew what was coming (if he was any good at his job, which apparently he is).  Yeah, I think I have a keeper in Dr. Eastin.  I see him again in 3 months.


I haven’t called any allergist yet, but I will tomorrow.  Hoping to get in sooner as opposed to later.  I need some kind of relief before my party in August.  All I need is a recommendation or prescription for the best allergy pill on the market which won’t put me into la la land or asleep.  I don’t think I am asking for too much.  Zyrtec works on my allergies here in Adel, but didn’t really do squat for my allergies in the Region… even taking 2 a day.  There has to be something better, there just has to be.


I also haven’t called an orthopod about my knee.  For them I am sure I am going to need a referral from my primary care guy, Chris.  Orthopedic docs tend to think that people don’t know when they are injured enough to need them.  I’ve lived with this sore knee for a few months now, Chris will give me a referral without issue.  He has already looked at it and couldn’t find anything wrong per se.  X-Rays showed nothing unusual either.  If it didn’t hurt continually to some degree I would believe there was nothing wrong, that I just tweaked it or something… but a tweaking doesn’t hurt for months.  So, I will call Chris tomorrow too.


Danny has let me down, no info, no invite and it is Tuesday evening.  I can’t make a multiple level character in roll20 in less than 2 days.  So, I am bummed about that.  Not surprised that I have been forgotten, just bummed.  I really wanted to play.

And Daniel moved his game from Friday nights to Saturday nights and I happen to enjoy spending my Saturday nights with my wife.  Plus he wanted to use Point Buy and as I have mentioned before, I HATE POINT BUY.  So, I left that game with a “good luck”.  I wasn’t digging the vibe I was getting there anyway.

So, I am back to looking for a Dungeons and Dragons game online.  If you are running one and have a spot or know someone running run with an open spot.  PLEASE let me know.  Any night except Saturday and Sunday as of right now.


Tonight I will be watching the latest PPV from the WWE, I believe they called it Stomping Grounds.  I have heard it was pretty bad and had a lot of empty seats.  We shall see.  I will watch it and give my opinion of it tomorrow.


So, I am done with appointments for this week.  Next week on Wednesday I have the endodontics appointment at 2.  Then Friday is my next trip to Mayo, and more baby shots.

Hopefully, I will have an allergist and an orthopedic appointment sometime in the near future.
