Self-experiment #1/ 2015: jam-packed week of social activities

“Age wrinkles the body; quitting wrinkles the soul.”
― Douglas MacArthur

 

I’m my own guinea pig – stay tuned for my first self-experiment of the year, a jam-packed week of social activities. 5 days down, 2 more to go. If you suffer from a chronic illness you understand how hard it is to keep up a social life…let’s see how I’ll feel Wednesday morning 🙂 Pushing my boundaries big time but not going to quit on my experiment.

Quitting is for quitters only. Don’t you ever give up on yourself!

THE GOAL

 

THE PROJECT

  • Wednesday: Dinner with D&P and baby L
  • Thursday:     Museum, drinks and sushi with O
  • Friday:           Indian Dinner (and drinks again) with J
  • Saturday:      Drinks and Chinese Dinner with S
  • Sunday:         Comedy Club with A, I, A, N
  • Monday:       Dinner and cocktails with T
  • Tuesday:       Coffee (and later on one wine ;)) with R

Thank you all for getting me out of the house and making this experiment possible!

 

THE RESULTS

This is more or less what my old, pre-MS life looked like. Work hard, play harder.

First of all – it didn’t stop after the week as I even added a second week after I felt so lonely on my first evening home alone, that’s why I only post it now 😉

It felt really good to be out of the house and catch up plus meet new people along the way, it made me realise how much I missed it the past 2 years. Of course, I was super exhausted and fatigue hit me hard, but something to look forward to in the evenings made me push through it. I’m very happy that things worked out well and I didn’t need to cancel one appointment but definitely need to improve my organisation skills  as the fridge doesn’t fill itself nor does the laundry find its way into the washing machine 😉

I feel like going out again, I’m definitely on a roll! Watch out Amsterdam!
