Hi kelseroo. Huge, huge CONGRATS on booking your procedure. This is beyond wonderful and I am so excited for you!!! I think it is exciting that it’s your husband’s first trip to the East Coast and your first trip to New England. I live in Boston and it’s so beautiful. Let me know anything you guys are interested in doing in particular (i.e. Newbury Street shopping, Boston movie tour, and so much more) and I can send you some links. In addition, here are some great links for visiting the area:
Visiting Boston Part I

It further discusses Things to do in Boston, including: horse-drawn carriage rides; Spirit of Boston cruises; dinner in the North End, Durgin Park in Faneuil Hall, or at the Top of the Hop in the Prudential Center; shopping on Newbury Street.
I think all of your ideas concerning making a film are excellent and I would definitely watch it. I, too, never shared about vaginismus with anyone other than my husband and the doctors we saw. Post-procedure, I opened up and shared this with a few of my closest friends. Like you wrote, it is so hard to share this but it can also be so cathartic. I also believe it is so important too as so many other women are affected by it and may also be living with it in silence as we have. In fact, right now, there are 510 Forum members either who directly have or had vaginismus or others including family members, friends, and even doctors and clinicians who want to work together to better understand it. Just writing that puts it into perspective for me on how important it is to advocate and help spread the word further about vaginismus.
Your thoughts, again, are all excellent and I’m so very excited for you and your upcoming treatment!!! :):):):)
