    Nah! My dalliance with the seafaring Piano Man I think is at an end. The ship was in several weeks ago and we had plans to get together and he just never showed up. Never called. No nuthin. I wrote him an email to ask what happened and he wrote back apologizing profusely but saying that the problem was that the ship staffing schedule had been changed on him at the last minute. (They have to leave a certain number of people on board at all times and everybody has to take a turn.) Cool. I totally understand that things like that happen. I was mad because he didn't take the thirty seconds necessary to whip out his cell phone and give me a call. I told him that but also told him that I don't hold grudges and we could move on. Haven't heard a word since. Oh well. That was never intended to be anything other than a fling. When he is not on a ship, he lives in Tennessee.

    Meanwhile, I may have rekindled an old flame in my life. This is the guy I was with five years ago when I got cancer. He stuck by me through that whole nightmare and is a big part of the reason why I didn't chug that bottle of booze and those pills and call it quits. The most kind, supportive, funny, sweet guy you could ever want to know.

    So, why did I ever let him get away? Good question. I think there is plenty of room for do-overs there. For one thing, we were only together for six months when I got sick and stayed together for well over a year after that so more of our relationship was about me being sick than anything else. That's not a representative sample of anybody's life.

    Also the other big thing that has changed is that he has retired. He used to work a very high pressure job for five days a weeks so the only two when I got to see him were a time to crash, eat a pizza on the couch while watching cable, have sex and then get ready to do it again next week. The sex part was always awesome. We had that right. Watching cable and eating pizza gets old. He is also learning how to de-stress and relax more than he used to.

    I got back in touch with him recently to let him know that my father had passed away (they were always good friends) and that I was moving and that I had made it to the 5 years post treatment mark cancer free.

    My neighbors at my old place threw a little going away party for me and a welcome party for the new buyers last Sunday and the xbf attended with me after which I gave him a guided tour of my new place which ended up in the bedroom. Then we had lunch yesterday and ended up back here again. Two days in a row! I think this constitutes "having a sex life" not just having sex. Yay!

    I may have overdone it a bit however. Feeling a bit sore today in special places. Chugging the D-Manose and trying to not get a bladder infection. I'm just not used to this. But I think I could easily get used to it.

    That's a good sore. Even better than after a good hard and heavy lifting session.

    Yes, the good kind of DOMS indeed. That D-Manose stuff is awesome. Kicks an incipient bladder problem to the curb in one day. I am usually the first one to call bs on most "herbal remedies" but not that stuff. It actually works. Perhaps I should buy a case of it.

    This is a really weird state to be in because it's like the start of a new romance, all fluttery, but yet it is wonderfully comfortable and familiar all at the same time.

    He's such a dear. And he is already Wolf Cub approved. My dog actually remembered him from five years ago and minded him walking on the least and everything.

    This is a guy with whom I could actually picture myself and him growing old together. Oh my, that's scary. Wonderful. But scary.

    Woohoo!
    Such fun good news!

    And yes on the D-Mannose. It's got my seal of approval as well. I always keep it in the house.
    Being on the meds I'm on is sometimes unkind to my urinary tract as it tends to keep me so dehydrated, especially if I'm away from hope and don't keep enough fluids pouring through during the day.
    The D-mannose has been a life saver several times over! And whenever I have a really "dry" day I just pop one with a BIG glass of water before bed as insurance.

    When I was first put on the meds I had to go on antibiotics a couple of times before I found the D-mannose... since then, not once.


    Wolf Cub approved is good BTW... listening to animals is always a good idea. If Wolf Cub didn't approve of the guy I'd be the first to tell you the guy MUST go! Dogs know things. LOL

    that is awesome news. it's so cool to be able to share what you are really like without illness (you) and killer job (him). That's awesome.

    The kind I have is a powder. Are you taking pills of it? Do you have any expert recommendations as to brands?

    And yes, the Wolf Cub is a wise little guy.

    That person the other day was actually asking if it was OK to eat duck eggs! I told her absolutely not, they are extremely hazardous and she should send them to me for proper disposal. WTF?

    Just talking with my ex/new guy on the phone (he's been calling every day), I'm remembering all the reasons I fell in love with him in the first place. He is very intelligent and quick witted conversationally and does hilarious imitations of John Cleese. We have these long rambling conversations where we keep each other giggling the whole time. I haven't giggled this much in far too long.

    LOL! It does seem that there are a lot of people lately who want to be spoon fed everything. Are these people new even to the internet??? What happened to getting acclimated to a community and trying to find the answers to stuff before just posting like a dufus? *grumble grumble*

    I truly believe that laughing is one of the best ways to get through it. "It" being just about anything. I am so happy for you.
