We haven't done this in ages.  We went to dinner at a really nice place and then went to see Eartha Kitt in concert (showing my age!)  she was 80 years old and WOW, could she move and sing.  She was fabulous.
What a pleasure it was to be able to treat my wife and be somewhat "normal".  It was a real blessing and a shot in the arm for me.
Thanks for letting me share
Love to all

It's unbelieveable how much we enjoy doing what's 'normal' for most people.  Makes you appreciate those times even more.  Glad to hear you're doing well.

Shrek i was just wondering what meds your currently taking.  Are you currently in a flare with urgency?

That is great news that you and your wife were able to have a wonderful evening together. Very important for married couples to do.
Dx:  2006
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
