Little catch up on a blazing hot Tuesday.
I feel like I've neglected my blog (again) even though I've only had a few days away from it. I've just been so busy over the last few days and then so exhausted from doing those things.
Today I feel back to my normal self. A good nights sleep followed by an afternoon sunbathing in the beautiful, blazing hot British sunshine definitely helped to perk me back up. It was exactly what I had been needing.
I felt very sociable last week!... I spent time with my Loulabelle and Lisy Lou, having a giggle and eating pizza on Wednesday evening then my friend Nicky brought her gorgeous little boy Micah round on Friday afternoon for a catch up. So much has happened since I last saw her so it was lovely to spend some time having a chat with her and snuggles with Micah.
Me and the boy had our little date night on Friday and went for a quick bite to eat, a drink and then to the cinema to see The Dark Knight Rises. I had been super excited about seeing this film and it definitely did not disappoint. I won't talk about it though because I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't seen it yet. I know I had been shutting off my ears to everything in anticipation!
On Saturday we did a little shopping and the weather was beautiful. I actually bared my legs in public for the first time in ages!... Had to put on sunglasses though to shield my eyes from the paleness of them though!
In the evening we went out for a meal for our friends Tina and Chris' birthdays at a local Mexican restaurant. There was a big group of us, the food was beautiful, it was my first night out in months and I got to dress up and put some nice make up on so I really enjoyed it. It completely knackered me out though and I did struggle towards the end of the evening as I was aching a lot, but I was so happy to get out and see everyone again. It almost felt like my life was back to normal - if only for a few short hours. I had a really good talk with our friend Janette too. She was diagnosed with endometriosis last summer so we've been keeping up to date on what's been happening with each other. She has been on a special diet which I want to look in to also, via a local nutritionist. I'll keep you posted on any progress I make with that and will give Janette a mention again soon as she had some excellent news the other week.
I had my medical assessment for my benefits yesterday. I won't go in to too much detail right now because I want to do a separate, more detailed post on it all, but I think it went OK so fingers crossed I can carry on receiving some financial help.
I've been working on things for the blog behind the scenes a little over the last few days and have a few different things I want to start writing about. Hopefully they will be up from this week onwards so keep your eyes peeled.
I've had some great feedback from people about the blog and I've really appreciated all the comments I've had. It's so nice to know people are reading this and understanding what this disease can do to people. I really want to get the word out and get more people following so please, please, please, click the follow buttons on the right and spread the word. My aim has always been the same: the more people that just read the word endometriosis the better. At least then they will have somehow heard of it. I know not everyone goes through the same things with endometriosis but hopefully my words here will shed some light on what to expect and give some support to those who are living with it - whether that be the person living with endometriosis, partner, parents, friends or colleagues.
