And she wonders why a few of the ladies couldn't abstain (Kyle particularly) for Kim's sake.

The dinner was great and I was happy to finally be asked a more in-depth question of why I was not drinking alcohol but my answer did not seem to impress anyone [Laughs]. Anyway in Europe, we are raised with holistic medicine. I had been dealing with the pain of breaking my back while delivering my son and the ensuing triple back fusion for 13 years, but in March when I started having extreme joint pain all over my body, I decided to go to Germany to do the fresh cell therapy, which is a holistic way to revitalize the body's own cells in order to treat disease.

Now looking back, that was the first onset of my ME-CFS. I just did not know it at that time.

It is interesting to hear Adrienne discuss her difficult labor. And it was sweet of Camille to share her surrogacy story. It's those stories that makes women bond.

Once the girls start drinking, it’s time for Kim and me to excuse ourselves. I had such a fun day and really wanted to end it that way. Usually I too love to enjoy a glass of wine and have fun but I don't like to see the kind of influence alcohol has had on some of the woman in this group. Anyway, I came here to support Kim and celebrate her sobriety so out of respect to her, maybe we should have scratched the alcohol for the weekend?
