Not at all, some times you just have to say the hell to it, just for today/tonight I am going to bloody well enjoy myself. After all the pains always there so once in a while at least you know why!


good points ladys ... thanks


I too think while you can still do it DO IT.

I had a time of 3 months where i couldnt walk anywhere or do literally anything and i swore if i got better i would do more socializing and enjoying myself.

I got better but not like before and i have just been to olly murs concert on friday and loved every minute of it. It was hard work and i am still recovering now but the housework can wait.

good for you Kel, glad you enjoyed it. I didnt know he was doing concerts till you said, i think he is good.. xx


It is important to have good times and have something to look forward to. Enjoy yourself while you can we are a long time dead girls and boys. I am hoping to have a good time with a friend next week who has a worse problem than me, so although it means long drive and a stay overnight in my camper I will go and smile and take her a big bunch of flowers and hand made card (they give me so much pleasure to make and give). Even if I suffer that night then at least I have memories! take care all, soft hugs. xxx


have a great time with your friend x your very right . hugs
