all the news that was fit to type

Yesterday I had my first telemedicine visit with my psychiatrist.  It felt weird.  I mean it went fine and we got what we needed to do accomplished, but it was just weird.  I don’t think I like telemedicine for psychiatric care, I want to see my shrink and know that he isn’t feeding me a line of bull.  It’s all good though, don’t have to see him again till 4pm on July 29th, long way away.  By then, things should be back to normal (ha ha) and I should be able to go to his office.


Tonight, we play Dungeons and Dragons on the Gang Gaming Server on Discord.  Well, I am running it, I don’t like what I had planned, so today will be redoing the whole spiel.  Yes, I do the reworking of whats going to happen almost every time, but this time I believe it is truly warranted.  What I had, sucks.


Oh, yesterday, I saw the rough sketch of Mit and his pets that my friend Cyd is drawing.  Mit looked cool, Rufus looked cool, but Osiris was hard to see.  But overall, the drawing looked great.  Cyd is so talented.  I am so lucky that I randomly contacted her on Facebook.  I hope that today or tomorrow I will get to see a more finished drawing but I love what I’ve seen so far.


For clarification, Mit is my new gnome battle smith,  Rufus is his big steel st bernard, and Osiris is his owl.  They are collectively for Jason’s Dungeons and Dragons Eberron campaign which I join on Sunday.  I found out at 3’9″ Mit is not the shortest character in the game.  Tink comes in at 3’2″.  Heh, we represent the lollipop guild.  Seriously, I thought gnomes were shorter than halflings, but I was wrong.


I wonder if I have cupcakes waiting for me in the kitchen.  Teresa went to Wal-Mart yesterday and I do not recall cupcakes being on the “we don’t have” or “we substituted” lists, so I may very well have cupcake bliss waiting for me this morning.  I will have to go check when I get done writing this.


I feel like crap.  I felt like crap when I went to bed last night and I feel like crap now.  I think I might have been drinking too little fluids.  I only drink water and lemonade just for your knowledge.  Anyhow, this could be because I am dehydrated or it could be something much worse, or it could just be a slight depression kicking in and making me feel bad.  Guess I will make sure to drink more today.  If its not dehydration, there is nothing I can do about them now anyway.  So, blah, I will just carry on.


I have decided that if the Corona Virus is still going strong, I am NOT going to Mayo on May 28th.  I will not climb into a Corona Virus petri dish and swim around.  Even wearing a mask isnt enough when Mayo is a major player in the Corona Virus treatment.  Which mean a lot of Corona Virus patients and a lot of the medical people who treat them will be running around.  Nope, not gonna risk it, they can’t make me.


I have also decided that the STILL NOT DEAD YET party on August 8th will happen.  At my mom’s house in Chesterton, Indiana.  By August, things SHOULD be back to normalish.  And the 8th falls between chemo weeks. So there is no reason the Dr. Alkhateeb should say NO to me going to Indiana.  The edict of no travel came after Covid-19 started and before there was a lockdown everywhere, so I think the edict will be lifted, I will talk with him once the lockdown are all lifted.

Anyhow, I plan to have my STILL NOT DEAD YET party and there is nothing anyone can say or do that would change my mind.  I want to SEE my friends and family.  I want to stay up late playing games.  I want to eat too much good food and feel like crap the next day.  I want all that and more.  So, I am gonna throw this party, on August 8th.  Invitations will go out in June.


My plan to have a NOT DEAD YET dinner here in Iowa was squashed by the Corona Virus, I am sorry my local friends, but there is nothing I could do about that.  If I am still around next Spring, I plan to have that NOT DEAD YET dinner somewhere here semi-locally, you have my word on that.


So with promises of a party and a dinner somewhat far off.  I bid you farewell my readers.  I hope you all stay healthy and even though things are opening up, I hope you fall on the side of caution.  Have a good day.  And I hope the video I have chosen for today makes you smile.
