So I Saw My Doctor Today...

I went to see my family physician today for a regular checkup. After going over the blood work and its results (which for a guy my size and age amazes him at how textbook perfect they always are) he asks about my depression. I told him it'd been pretty bad as of late. So he then asks if I have any hobbies to distract me. I told him I play Pathfinder, a variant of D&D. He looks at sort of incredulously and asks, "With dice and not a computer version?"

I said, "Yes, lots and lots of dice".

He asked who the DM was, and I said I was. 99% of the time. He kind of laughed and said he hadn't played since before medical school (he and I are the same age). He then told me he bet I was a really good DM. That me feel pretty good the rest of the day.

You never know where appreciative compliments will come from, or how actions you think are minor can influence others.

It should make you feel good every day. :-)

Not everyone can do what you you do.

Or at least well. :-)

Most people who have never GM'd never realize how much effort, passion and time it takes to create a good story. When everything comes good it is so rewarding.
Having someone aknowledge your creativity is great.
And from what I have read of you iin this forum, DM Cal, you are one of the good ones. At least, I like your POW in most topics.
Keep those dice rolling!
