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!
