I’m not really the party/ going out kind of person. It’s never really been my thing to go out where there’s going to be a big group of people and I don’t know enough people to get invited to things like that much anyway. Now with having M.E going out for social things has become even more rare. The most I go out is to work or catching a ride into town with my family when they need to run errands. I will occasionally go to the movies or visit a friend but it isn’t a regular thing and there will be times when that doesn’t happen for weeks or months.
One thing that is pretty regular is meeting my friend in town for lunch. We usually go once a week, though we have missed a couple of weeks lately. Our favourite place to go to is an Indian curry place and we have been going so often that the people working there know us now and will know what we want to order. They are always so friendly as well.
At first we would always order Butter Chicken then one time the man working there suggested that I try Chicken Jalfrezi next time. I did and I loved it so much that I just kept getting that. I soon got my friend to try it as well and it has become our regular thing. It’s nice going somewhere familiar where the people recognise you and know what you want. Though at first I felt a bit weird thinking that we go there too much but now it doesn’t bother me.
It good being able to get out of the house and catch up with friends. I don’t really talk to many people and find it easier sometimes to just text but I have really enjoyed this and look forward to when we go. Plus the food is amazing.
