If you are planning any PMR/ GCA Friendly Romantic Encounters next Friday Forum Folk perhaps you might want to forego the one that has just been offered to Me.
I've got off the phone with the Physiotherapists office , and guess what , for a Valentine's Treat next Friday I will be ....being Manipulated by the Physiotherapist!
I was originally told that this might happen earlier in the week , but they confirmed it this morning, along with the added " Romantic Bonus" of a quick check up with the visiting Neuro Gynaecologist , just to see what's , what , and review if my Pain Meds have improved my (in the Receptionists terms whispered in a broad Welsh Accent ) ...... " Personal Relations".
Who said that you couldn't still get Love for Free on the NHS!! 😋😂😂😂
I have to contain myself and just raise an eyebrow and grin at these occasions as I find it hard enough sharing a hug , or a bed , with my Other Half , let alone the aforementioned Personal Relations , they discuss . I really won't have anything to report. Unless you include a quick Goodnight peck each bedtime over the edge of my big Boyfriend pillow.
But , at least my Physio is both good looking , funny , and smells of Jasmine , so it's not the worst Date I will have ever had.
Ah! The Modern World , hey!
Or should I say the " New Normal" with Chronic Pain. Things have definitely changed . For , I am pretty sure that in the Old Days , before you even discussed the topic of Monkey Business , or took most of your clothes off in front of a Man , he was meant to at least buy you a bunch of Daffs , some Chocolates and take you out to Dinner first .
Thank goodness , I , and my long suffering Other Half can see the Funny side , as in truth , in the last two years, my Consultant can say he's seen me naked more often than my Hubby has!!!
But then again , Romance comes in all forms these days for Us doesn't it . In my humble opinion, there's nothing that shows the Love more from your favourite person than the gift of a well plumped pillow , a cuppa, and a hot water bottle .
Have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope the Valentine's Adventures you may be planning are a little more ( or maybe a little less ) exciting than this one.
Hopeful hugs , Aunty Bee xxx😍
