How Strange My Life Has Become!

Recommended Posts

LMAO -

This thread made my day!

Before diagnosis, I thought I had become slightly obsessed with my "movements" because I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on! Always looking - evaluating - analyzing....Wouldn't have dared to mention it to anyone, though.

Now, it's a common conversation in my life!

Evaluating the quality of the week by the ... quality of movements is hysterical.

Got glutened tonight at a restaurant (grrr) --- let's just say I was the queen of the throne for a while this evening!


Amy

Gluten Free since 4/05 - adult onset

After FINALLY having a normal "formed" bowl movement, I, too, felt like throwing a big party. I was so excited that after years of diarrhea, I could be normal once again! :P

The other day, one of my friends asked me about HER bowel movements. I've crossed over from poop-conscious to poop guru. :lol:

She had noticed a change that concerned her, and after several questions about length of time it had been happening (less than a week :rolleyes: ), diet changes, frequency, color, floatability, etc., I told her that it was probably something she ate and to let me know if it didn't improve in a week.

Think I should have charged her a co-pay? :lol:

Personally, I'm lobbying for a handicapped parking sticker, nothing worse than making a desperation sprint from the back rows of the parking lot.

Shirley, I love your sig. line about learning to dance in the rain. I use it all the time now and everyone marvels at how "philosophical" I've become. Then I tell them I ripped it off B)

:lol: I can't remember where I got it from, but as I grew up on the North West (wet) Coast, it's really suitable. If you don't do all the fun things in the rain, you don't do them at all :P

And yes, I don't wait for the storms to pass in our lives either, it's much too short to waste time.
