Things I Took For Granted Before Vulvodynia and Pudendal Neuralgia

-Driving a Car
-Working at a Desk
-Seeing a Movie in the Theatre
-Wearing Pants, Especially Jeans
-Wearing Panties
-Going to the Bathroom

This is just a short list of mundane things that people do without thinking.

Living with vulvodynia and pudendal neuralgia, I have to take my vag into account when I do just about everything.

It's important to note that sex is not on this list because I never got to enjoy sex without pain. It was terribly painful from the first time, but now I'm thankful for every chance I have to enjoy sex with less pain.

All of the things you mentioned hurt me too.

I also have interstitial cystitis so I self-catheterize to do bladder instillations at home to treat that.

It can be really fun having these types of illnesses.
