I don’t recognise myself at the moment.

 

I went to the zoo with my children and was more excited about the zebras than my children were.

I have the confidence to sing out in church where I would normally be a bit shy.

I’m mostly on a high at the moment. I was always a shy dancer but at a recent wedding I reckon I was THE best (or craziest) dancer there.  I was only drinking iced water and I was the most outgoing person there.

I’ve always enjoyed being around small children, now I really love to play with them. In general I am much more likely to play with them than try to interact with adults.

My tastes in food have changed. I do not fancy junk food as much but fruit and veg.

I currently have a coloured streak in my hair, like to wear my hair in pigtails and have had my nose pierced again.
I was in a charity shop and the clothes I chose I would normally consider were for someone in their 20’s. I love sparkly, Lacey and figure hugging jeans. I have lost quite a bit of weight since I became ill so am a bit more body confident.

As I mentioned in a previous blog,  I have a much higher than normal (for me) sex drive (which my husband does not mind at all!).  I’ve not bought condoms before but now I’ve bought them a few times and not felt in the least bit embarrassed. I would have been embarrassed in the past.
I feel very sexy and desirable too, not something I have felt since my 20’s!

    I’m all the opposite of that ! talking in front of people scares me to death and I can’t break that block ! Love reading your blogs and don’t usually comment on any because it’s takes to long to think of the right way to say what I want to get across to you ! Sorry ! it’s taken me 40 minutes to write this review ! Terrible at this
