I met "the one" in January 2005. At the end of September 2005 I got a Clostridium difficile infection and the symptoms never really went away despite treatment with Flagyl. We got engaged this January. After months of testing and feeling awful my doctor finally determined that I had IBS and not Crohn's or anything like that.For a month or so I seemed to be improving a bit, especially with the Demerol I was prescribed by a pain management doctor. Without it I would have been unable to leave the house which would definitely qualify me as the Least Fun Fiancee Ever. However, about a month ago my pain started getting worse. I was finally hospitalized and found out I had a relapse of the C. diff. I started treatment last week but for the past month I have barely been out of the house and am definitely not up for anything more intimate than snuggling together on the couch. My poor fiance has been so wonderful about all of this but I feel terrible that I am not the fiancee he deserves. I have been doing whatever intimate things I can (won't get too graphic here) but most of the time I just want to sleep.How do all of you keep the romance alive? My fiance and I still have a lot of fun together even at home. When I feel up to it I will cook us a nice dinner, we both love television and movies, and we have two hilarious cats who are an endless source of entertainment. We are getting a dog, too, as soon as we meet one that we click with. I am also hoping the dog will help ME, too. He/she will force me to get it together to go on a walk and will allow me to focus on something other than the pain. Hope it works!
