Oh Shit!

Today is bonus day in my blogging world. However, be warned right up front, if you’re squeamish about poop talk, you might want to skip this one, ’cause that’s what it’s about. While this may not be my most comfortable topic ever, I’m committed to sharing what’s going on in my head and in my body in the hope that someone, somewhere will be helped. And this is definitely what’s going on in my body right now!

In short, I’ve been a pooping monster since first thing yesterday morning! That might not be very exciting to some, but I’ve had poop problems for as far back as I can remember, so pretty much any time I have a decent poop, I get a little jazzed. And let me tell you, I’ve been jazzed out the wazoo since first thing yesterday morning. Since I started the protocol for gut health six weeks ago, things have definitely been improving in the poop zone. For too many years to count, most days I’ve had either the dreaded D word or constipation, usually some of both. And, as I’ve mentioned before, my gut has hurt me since I was a kid, lately all the time. But the pain has been greatly relieved, and my poops have been finding a middle ground. Even so, I’ve continued to feel as though there was a lot I wasn’t getting rid of, in spite of all my potions and pills.

A week ago I started the protocol for my adrenals, which added four more supplements. Now, I don’t know what they would have to do with my gut, so I don’t have any idea if yesterday’s big success was due to them or not, but in any case, yesterday was aMAZing! I pooped all day! Now, I’ve had days like that in the past, but it wasn’t what you could call pleasant. Nasty little dribs and drabs, stomach cramps, a lot of work for minimal results – just downright discouraging. Yesterday was totally different. No gut cramps. No false starts. No … okay, no more description. Yesterday was just smooth sailing, time after time after time. I’d sit down to pee and oh! Well hello! Not too hard, not too soft, I coulda been Goldilocks! And well worth what little effort was required, these were not false starts, no sirree Bob. By the end of the day I honesty figured I’d maybe lost a few pounds (sadly, no).

Looks like today may be a redo. Now I admit, more than a day or two of such bowel largess   might become annoying. But I’m thinking I’ve got years of crap that’s been bugging me, and it’s about time I just got that shit out in the open, you know? It’s not doing me any good way up in there, right? So, poop on, bod of mine! I’m feeling lighter already!

    Let me tell you I can totally relate. I’ve spent my whole life either going to much not at all. Life sucks when you can’t go. So I am very happy for you girl. Hope your pooping days continue. Maybe regulate a bit but continue.
    Oh and your book Left Turn at Cloud 9 is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I was very excited to see your new one. And to hear your sequel for Cloud 9 is coming soon. Cannot wait.

      Thank you for your lovely words, Candace! Yes, I have become much more regular! I’m about to change supplement protocols, and I admit I’m nervous about it, but we’ll see how it goes (no pun intended!). I’m sorry you’ve had similar struggles. I would strongly encourage finding a functional medical practitioner and figuring out the cause(s). Maybe we don’t have to live with these troubles any longer.
      I’m so glad you enjoyed Cloud 9. 🙂
