My mom and I have a good relationship. We actually keep other company. I don't have friends to go out with and neither does she so the way I see it, we help each other to go out places.

Years ago, I would even take her out to gay bars. We'd drink, dance and she'd get very talkative with strangers. There was one night when she even did karaoke to the song "Time Warp" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show! Of course, she wouldn't have done that sober but the worse she sounded the more the audience loved her! It was great! We even got a couple of free drinks after that! I also once took her to a Foam Party and it was also a first for me but we both had a blast! It was a good time.

For three years, we dressed up and attended Halloween block parties at a gay district. I've taken her to concerts to see Bette Midler, Cher, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, George Thorogood, some jazz with Dave Koz, comediane Kathy Griffin. This past December Cirque do Soleil rolled into town which we attended then afterwards, we went to a special screening of 'Gremlins' at a theater.

We even vacation together. Last year we went to San Diego – which I absolutely fell in love with! Beautiful city! We've also gone to San Francisco – which I would move there in a heartbeat….whenever I win the lottery. The other destination we've gone and which we both will go again, is Orlando Florida. We went to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Yup, my mom was in her late 50's and she was enjoying those thrill rides as much as I was terrified riding them! And now the the new Harry Potter theme park, we want to go back hopefully early next year.

I like hanging out with my mom. I believe because I'm an only child and living with this disease, I want to enjoy my time with her. It's always been just the two of us. Deep down, I would love for her to meet people she can relate to and experience life with people she has things in common with (ok, people her age) but she doesn't so that's where we help each other out. All the going out, drinking, foam parties….that's all past us. Now it's more about going to a Farmers Market, going out for breakfast, catching a movie. Everything is much more mellow. Hmmm, never in my wildest dreams would I have thought my mom wore me out from partying!

    Thanks guys. I love my mom. She's my best friend….heck, I even pick out clothes for her!

    Honestly, she keeps me sane….but then, there are times when she drives me insane!

    Moms….gotta love 'em!
