Out There

I’m sure many of your have heard the song “Out There” from Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and equated it with the invisible illness experience – if not, take a listen:

Recently, my husband and I had some plans fall through and wound up going to hear my Dad’s band play at a bar. It was actually a pretty cool experience for me – being out and doing the kind of things 20-somethings are expected to. Bars aren’t really my thing but it was nice to dance and even drink a little. We ran into some friends there and for once I felt just like everybody else.

Of course, I had to rest up afterwards and regather some spoons to make up for the fun night out. But still – it was awesome. Is it the kind of think I wished I did all the time? No. But getting a taste of that life is sweet.

This evening is the last night my husband has off until Christmas, so we went “Out There” tonight. I’m already beat! But since last weekend’s highlight was an entire day in the ER, this is a nice change of pace.

What kind of “Out There” experiences have you had? What “normal” things are extra exciting for you? Tell me about it in the comments!

P.S. – did I ever share the photos of our Halloween costumes?

And my best friend was Snow White, so we had to take Disney Princess gal pal pictures:

About rachelmeeks

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.
