Woo Hoo A Date!

Ron and I went out on a date tonight! We had a great dinner (Lobsterfest at Red Lobster) and then we went to the book store for new reading materials. We are both book lovers and never come out of a book store with just one book each. It was a lot of fun.

Due to increased pain, decreased mobility, and depression it has been at least a year (possibly two years) since we have gone out on a date. Despite my pain being at a 7, I decided to force myself to go anyway. I am very glad that I chose to go. It was wonderful to sit at the table, eat a delicious meal and be able to talk to each other without being interrupted. I've really missed being able to go out with Ron and enjoy it.

My pain is now at an 8.5 so I'm going to head to bed and read my new books!


  1. My pain is bad my breathing is going downhill so I know the feeling...I want to go to bed, but my carer is being lazy and hasn't gotten up yet so I have to wait for the council because we have a leak!

    Feel better soon!

  2. I am sorry to hear that your pain is so bad Joey! I hope you feel better real soon!



Thank you for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog. For people who are chronically ill and/or in constant pain, it can be difficult to socialize as frequently as we would like to do so. Talking with others online is a way for us to socialize, chat with others, make new friends, reach out to others in similar circumstances and many more positive effects.

Knowing that someone has read my posts and commented on it, helps in many ways. The biggest two being that it helps ease the feeling of being "alone" and that no one could possibly understand. Secondly, it reminds us that others truly do care and that just feels wonderful!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and/or comment on my blog, it really does mean a great deal to me and is helpful too!
