Ladies, thank you for your candor, your helpful suggestions, for your willingness to discuss this in a public forum.
I learned, I laughed and I listened.
Kathe, from Annapolis, had an experience that sent me to Physical Therapy today with questions, the first one, could they crank up the music, since there were people on tables to my left and my right, the second was are there people in our area practicing Pelvic Floor PT. I was rewarded with two big yeses.
She also told me when her class was asked who would be interested in training further in this area, she was the only one who raised her hand.
I said I though this was a field that could use more practitioners. There are million of baby boomers who are NOT going to go gently into that good night.
I'll get some suggestions from my PT soon but in the meantime I have found a group at Virginia Hospital Center here in Arlington.
I'm gonna check it out. Though I am not having sex now, when and if the occasion rises, I want to be able to engage wholeheartedly, knowing I will be both present and pain free.
Guess this is what we call taking one for the team.
Cause none of us want to have "atrophied vagina" stamped on our permanent record.
Am I right?
PS. I've noticed how much easier it is to blog when I'm writing from the heart. Thanks for being so receptive.
