Smile You are not going to believe this

I went out to eat tonight dinner and for the first time since Feb 2007 I was able to eat out and sit in a restaurant for close to an hour without having to stand up 1/2 way thru dinner because of back pain!

IT'S TRULY A MIRACLE!!! Thank You Jesus!!

Re: You are not going to believe this

Hi Pepper,

YEAAHHHHH!!!! Good for you, girl! Doesn't it feel miraculous to do what "normal" people do everyday and take it for granted? I know exactly what you mean. Before I started on Methadone, it was torture to sit through a meal with my hubby.

It wasn't the "sitting" part that bothered me because my pain is not my back, it was just the "being" there due to my kidney pain. Then, most of the time, the smell of the food would just make me nauseous. So, I'm sitting there trying not to dry heave at the table and quickly putting my food in a doggie bag and head off to the ladies room. Not exactly a night out my hubby had in mind.

Well, things are quite different now with the Methadone and I can actually enjoy the whole evening. I'm so happy for you, Pepper. Take care and bye for now.

Shay

Re: You are not going to believe this

Fantastic Pepp. I am so happy for you. I remember going through a lot of the same "firsts" way back when. I had gone a year or so, before finding my current PM and I was existing pretty much the same as you were, just a couple of weeks ago. Each "new" thing I could do was such a joy for me. And I know my hubby was a a lot happier too. Congrats! CMP/MM

Re: You are not going to believe this

So happy for you! I do ok for a short while in cushioned chairs. Had to sit @ a table this week as no booths were available and did have to get up. Pain makes it harder fin or me to eat. Amazing how I can eat later when I am comfortable and less pain which means less stress from trying to hide pain. Congrats on being able to enjoy yourself & hubby.

Re: You are not going to believe this

I am glad you enjoyed, sweetie! This is what life is about for us; those little happy moments with family and friends make us so happy...
Many people, who are well, would think we are crazy to get excited about things like this, but we understand each other...

I had bad day yesterday (physically), but emotionally great; my kids took my 3 years old granddauther to a Sesame Place water park and my hubby and I babysat 5 month old bundle of joy! Should I say more?

Came home at 6 pm, friends invited us to a local pizzeria for pizza - dinner. Well, my dream was to go to bed early after hard day, but I pushed myself anyway... Most of the time I was walking around the table, thank God it's outside, but still had a good time with all of them.

Don't let anything stop you from having a good time when you can.
Wish you more happier days in a future...
Love and blessings...

Re: You are not going to believe this

Oh yes I believe it! You have had so many people praying for you that this was just bound to happen. Thank you Lord.

I hope that this was just the first of many enjoyable evenings for you.
