I got blood and you couldn’t prove it by me

I got blood yesterday and I don’t have the surge of energy that I normally do.  It’s because of the fact that my hemoglobin peaked lower than normally it does when I get blood.  I knew this was gonna happen when doctor Wehbe didn’t give me the blood at 7.5 and made me wait to 6.7.  Anyhow, I will NEVER make the miscalculation again, and will always just act surprised when my hemoglobin hits 7.5 and go run and get my blood.  Predicting it this time really came back and bit me in the butt.  So now, for 2 weeks I get to feel like blah.   Oh goody.


I went and saw Dr. Eastin, my shrink, today.   We chatted for a while.  I told him my probelms with Lexapro.  He said about 35% of people have the same problem.  Well, it doesn’t matter to me what the percentage is, I know I had the problem and I won’t take it because of said problem.  And he agreed, he wouldn’t either.  But anyhow, I don’t need an anti-depressant any more. At least not now.  I am definitely not depressed right now, maybe leaning a little toward a physically weak slight hypomanic.  Yeah, I am kind of pathetic, but I still live.


Why is Hectic in such a good mood?  Well, the cause of the depression was not hearing enough from Mayo.  Lately I have bee hearing from them daily.  I even have the direct phone number of the person who organizes transplants and DLIs and such for Mayo on a world level.   Yeah, buddy.  I have complained about not knowing what is happening with my case since the relapse. In the past 2 weeks, I have heard from my doctor on the phone, and heard from this lady three times.  Just giving me updates, it’s cool.  Real cool.


Teresa is looking for a new PlayStation game.  She is doing a whole lot of research.  I think she has it narrowed it down to four games, maybe five.  I hope she finds one that makes her happy.  She needs a new game.  World of Warcraft can only fill so much time.  Every so often she gets it into her head that she needs a new game.   She has a real good track record so far, she got Witcher 3 and Horizons which were both excellent games.  So, I have no fear that she will pick yet another great game.


I’m always looking for a new Xbox game.  The racing game I got when we got the Xbox, is just too tough for me.  I tried to play it many times, but can’t seem to get the hang of it.  So, I look for Xbox games all the time.  But I haven’t found one that meets all the I require for a game.  There is only so much Skyrim that I can play.  Some day I will find a game.  Some day I will find a game which fits my needs.  Until then I will have a really expensive paper weight.


Mom and Jim move the final stuff over to their new house tomorrow.  They finally get to move in to the new house.   Really didn’t think it was gonna happen this Fall, but they pulled off a miracle and they got the house.  Not just any house, one that ticks just about every box on their list.  It’s really cool that they got this house.  I hope that it every thing they want.
