So my last hideous day was on my anniversary in September, I had a very unfortunate accident (unable to find a loo) whilst out and about in Paris and had to cut our holiday short and come home early. I haven't felt great in the last 6 weeks, ok, but not great.
It's my birthday today, we were out and about, and there was that feeling again, managed to find a public loo (grim), but it was locked, and that was that.
I think the issue is that since I had the fistula surgery I can't hold on to my wind, that combined with the urgency means that buffer that others have when their tummy is upest that allows them to hold on is gone.
I'm tired of this, I want my life back, I want to be able to get up in the morning and say 'I want to do this today', without the first thought being about toilet access.
So I have eaten nothing since this morning (it's now 6.30pm) and I'm spending my birthday evening sitting on the sofa with a hot water bottle.
This sucks.
Rant over
Hope everyone else is well.

I really sorry to hear that's how your day went...Sending love your way.
I couldn't leave the house for a while because of it, even on immodium, but it started working eventually in combination with prednisone.
I hope you feel better soon.

Aw Debbie, that's the worst. I have been there. I have been crying in my car, praying to make it somewhere without soiling myself. It's so humiliating, on top of painful.

I'm sending prayers your way, and hopes that your drs. will find the right treatment to get you back on track soon.

God bless.
