I know that with any holiday food is a big part of it. Ham, turkey, cheesy potatoes, gravy and loads of other delicious goodies that may or may not land us in the bathroom. I remember one Christmas getting scolded though the bathroom door not because I caved and ate the polish sausage( a holiday favorite in my family) but because one of the funny holiday memories I missed out on was a my little cousin taking out the Christmas tree with the large rubber ball I bought him. This year I decided to take a preventive pill so that I didn't have to worry about
the guts acting up. I've done it before with good results and I figured I'd do it again. I got to the in laws in the morning just fine and even was treated nicely by their canine( she's not the friendliest pooch). We ended up leaving because we had to get ready for my family thing. On our way home is when it hit me. My little preventive measure backfired. No I didn't get any D but I forgot that when I took a preventive pill before I was a D person. Now I'm both and I've been in a C spurt. Oops. Made it to my parents but not my aunt's. Tummy was just acting up that badly. The only time my pill lasts for the full 8 hours is when I don't want it to. Of course it did help the pain somewhat so it could have been worse but I kept running to the bathroom because I felt like I had to go but it just didn't work. Overall I had a wonderful holiday even if I missed the big family thing. My parents said I didn't miss much( Dad said everyone brought food I couldn't eat anyways like cheesy potatoes, pigs in a blanket and other greasy, dairy laded foods) and that the only thing I missed was my other little cousin dancing on the coffee table( he's 3). I'm just pleased that I was able to do what I did. My fear has kept me pretty much house bound for several months( farthest I went from home was my parents two miles away) and I was able to put that aside to go way out of my current comfort zone. And on a day where most of the bathrooms are closed as well!
So did you have a good holiday?
