Lots of smiles and happiness from me today :D
We had a fun weekend and for the first time in ages we went on a trip to visit our friends who live far from us but have a holiday home nearby. It's been 4 years since we last saw them in person so we were all excited. It was a 2 hour drive to get there and it was wonderful..no stress or anxiety or sudden BMs..NOTHING!! We spent the afternoon there talking and eating and having fun, kids were swimming in the sea. A great day and we are still in shock how good it was :) :) :)
This therapy and gel are working wonders for me. This is the best time I had in so long..I wasn't feeling this energetic even before when I was "ok".
I am working full time again..so manny ideas and things to draw going through my mind. I started laughing out loud and singing again..
Annie and Kenny I know you are reading this and thank you for being supportive when I was unwell..I know you are happy for me now :D

I am actually on holiday right now!
I didn't think it would be possible but here we are, at my parents house dipping our feet in the sea and laughing. :D
It took us 5 hours by car and it was ok. No BMs or anything out of the ordinary really. We had one stop because we wanted to stretch our legs and also walk the dog. I have no words..just WOW!
Kids are so excited and happy and so am I. This is amazing really
My husband just went free climbing with my brother in law and we'll be going to the beach in a couple of hours. I wish you all the best and I wish you this kind of happiness. I'll update when I can :)
