Gaming with the Sunday afternoon group is off for this afternoon once more.

SteveR is still recovering from what he’s been going through this past month (long story, and not mine to tell), and while Tammy’s available to play this weekend she’d rather not game without SteveR. This isn’t a bad thing, to be perfectly honest, as my health problems with the pain in the shoulder, arm, hand, neck, and head are still extremely bad, so we won’t be playing this afternoon.

I am sorry that I’m not going to be able to actually start the The Dark Eye campaign with the first scenario with the Sunday group again, but things are what they are.

The Human Need December 10, 2017

Yesterday was a strange day.

I woke up feeling relatively all right, as the term “relatively” is used about myself these days. Frankly, it meant that I didn’t scream from the pain in the hand/arm/shoulder/neck/back when I got out of bed.

I went about the morning stuff, and took it fairly easy and didn’t feel all that bad. Since I’ve had some cabin fever of late and really did feel a bit better, I decided to go out and find some companionship. (No, not that way, silly readers! I’m not up for that at the moment, to be honest. But thanks for thinking it.

I risked taking a drive (given my current health state and the medication for pain I’m taking) over to Billings Bridge Centre, as I needed to pick up a 2018 calendar and just wanted some time among the (human) herd, so to speak. So where better than a shopping centre during the Christmas season?

I went up to the food court and had some lunch, and then headed over and picked up the calendar, though not the one I was looking for, before thinking of heading home. But I was quite relaxed and enjoying my time among the human herd. So I went and sat down at a nice, comfy bench with a good cushion on it, and sat and people watched for a couple of hours, and just…absorbed all the human (inter)action around me. By the time I left the shopping mall and got home, I was feeling somewhat more human again…though I did feel very pained in the body parts that are bothering me these days.

Woke up this morning very early, due to the bad pain in the hand/arm/shoulder/neck/back areas, and while I feel I know that I’m paying for the afternoon out, I’m feeling somewhat better about myself and a bit more human again. And that’s all that counts.

In the meantime, I feel like having pancakes for my late breakfast, and that’s what I’m going to do.

Friday Evening Gaming Session Cancelled December 8, 2017

Once more, it pains me (no pun intended) to say this…

Gaming is off for tonight, as I’m just in too much pain in the neck, back, shoulder, and arm(s) to game tonight, as I’m really unable to focus on stuff very clearly. Kathy and the other gamers were quite disappointed at the news, but completely understand. Kathy also told me that Ellie is down with some sort of cold or virus (they hope it’s not the flu or anything like that), so she and Ellie would not be gaming tonight, regardless.

I’m sad that we’re not going to continue on with the The Dark Eye RPG campaign this evening, but such is my life at the moment. Heck, I’m lucky if I can stand at all. Going to lie down now for a while before having to get up and make supper.

It has been a hell of a day.

I spent part of the day going to the physiotherapy clinic to give her the recommendations made by the orthopedic surgeon, but will have to wait for an appointment until my insurance is handled properly on this. Didn’t find a decent wall calendar for 2018 at Chapters. Had to take my mom out for shopping.

The pain is very bad in the shoulder, arm, neck, and– never mind.

Gaming is off for tonight, as I just can’t focus on stuff very clearly and the pain is quite severe. Kathy and the other gamers were quite disappointed at the news, but completely understand.

Start of December, A New Month December 1, 2017

It’s December 1st. A new month.

And I’m glad that November is over, though I am dreading the true coming of winter this month, but given how last month went, just happy December has arrived.

Being Jewish and a singleton, December tends to be a depressing month for me, though I do have some family and a few friends that will try to lighten the mood. That said, there’s all kinds of other stuff that December brings, so we’ll see how the month goes.

Medically, I’m hoping that the month will be a quiet one, but I doubt it. I;m currently in severe pain for reasons that I’ve discussed elewhere (sort of) in the blog. I’ve got an appointment with the regular doctor as well as my Footcare appointment to deal with, but there’s other stuff going on as well. And possibly a visit or two to the hospital… As for the rest of December, I’m hoping it passes quietly, there’s not a lot of snow ::knock on wood::, and that someone buys me a Christmas present of some sort! 🙂

The real trick for me in December (well, most of the winter, really) is to manage to keep warm. The arthritis that I have is one thing, but the neuropathy damage from the diabetes that I do have makes winter tough on my keeping the extremities warm.

Gaming for this evening, Wednesday night, has been cancelled.

It has been a horrible day, to be honest, and the appointment with the specialist, a sports medicine and orthopedic surgeon, did not go well. Very badly, to be honest, and the diagnosis and prognosis are not good. Add to that the pain that I’m currently in (on a 0 to 10 scale, I’m at 11 or so), and I just don’t feel up to gaming.

So gaming is off.

Personally, I’m sorry that I had to cancel gaming tonight, as I was rather looking forward to continuing work with the Wednesday night gamers on the The Dark Eye RPG characters and campaign with them, but such is life. Real, that is.

It’s another Friday…

…and that means it’s time for another Friday night gaming session. So, I’m getting ready for this evening’s game session with the Friday night group.

The pain that I’m suffering remains the same, and I’m still dealing with it in a bad way. The Friday night group are doing all right, so I’ll be running the game tonight. They’re pretty pleased about this, since we’ve missed the last couple of sessions of gaming. I’m looking forward to tonight’s game session of The Dark Eye this evening.

In the meantime, supper (of some form) needs to be made, and eaten. Then gaming.

Have a good night, folks.

Getting ready for an evening of gaming with the Wednesday night gaming group.

I’ve been having a rough time of it lately, and the pain in my left shoulder, neck, arm and back have gotten worse as time goes on (though I’m still not talking about what’s going on with me in that regard, as there’s too much to absorb still.

In the meantime, the Wednesday night gaming group will start play in their The Dark Eye RPG campaign, starting with character creation this evening for said game.

Hopefully, this will distract me somewhat from the pain that I’m in these days. However, for now I probably should get upstairs and make some supper.

Have a good evening, folks.

Doctor Appointment and MRI Results November 14, 2017

Just got home from the appointment with the doctor.

This appointment was the follow-up to the previous appointment, and the second MRI that I had done last week.

The MRI(s) results were…not good. I’m still coming to terms with the results, and their implications for me. In the meantime, I’ve got to see a specialist to decide what to do about the (major) problem that has come up. I have to call the specialist tomorrow to set up an appointment to see him.

Meanwhile, the back/shoulder/arm/neck pain continues to worsen.

Nothing more to add at this point.

Due to a couple of circumstances that I’m not going to talk about here on the blog, Friday night gaming is cancelled for this evening.

While I’m enjoying the The Dark Eye RPG gaming campaign and current adventure with the Friday night group, gaming this evening is just not possible.

Nothing more to add.
