More Traveling with Vulvodynia & PN

I haven't written lately because I've been doing pretty well.  I'm dividing my work day between standing and sitting on my cushion.  I've gone longer in the day without pain.

I just travelled for 13+ hours to visit family in Hawaii.  I brought my cushion along and it help make the eight hour flight tolerable.  Best of all, I didn't leave the cushion in a cab once I got here (happened on my honeymoon.)  Also, unlike my honeymoon, I'm traveling without my husband.  My parents are here, my aunt, uncle and a host of cousins, are here as well, but I am just heartsick. 

The time will go by quickly and I would have been a fool to pass on this opportunity.

True Life: I Can't Have Sex
Millions of women experience severe pain during intercourse, leaving many to avoid sex altogether. Yet the problem is rarely discussed, especially in the media. In this episode of MTV's Emmy Award-winning documentary series, we're hoping to follow three young women with dyspareunia as they attempt to lead healthy sex lives. We're looking for women who appear to be between the ages of 18 and 29 who might be willing to share their stories on MTV in an attempt to inform and educate young people across the country. If you or anyone you know might be interested in participating, please e-mail us at

I am so glad you got to make this trip. I'm even more pleased that it hasn't been excruciatingly painful for you.

Thanks for sharing.
