See that picture to the left? Know what that is?! It’s a piping hot cup of prune juice and Miralax. Mmmmm. Oh but we don’t want to talk about pooping right?! Surely nobody can know how pooping, or the lack thereof, plays a big role in this disease process! That’s too personal! WELL, I’m just throwing it out there… It’s hard to poop… and at the age of 34, I never thought my bowels would be at the forefront of my everyday thoughts… but they are.
What people that can poop need to know about those of us that can’t!!
- Well, you really don’t need to know about it… but we’re talking about it anyways because we can’t poop and it makes us grumpy
- When I do poop, I get really excited! (My husband gets excited too) Like, it’s a badge of honor in my house when Mom is pooping
- Bowel dysfunction can cause a great deal of frustration and embarrassment for those of us with neurological/auto-immune diseases. It can also aggravate other symptoms. Just letting ya know! Raise the glass of prune juice with pride!!!
