I truly miss my morning routine: Wake up, brush teeth, use the toilet for my daily bm. Then shower, breakfast, off to work. I was so regular in the mornings that it never occurred to me that my bowels could betray me like they have.
Now, I wake up, use the loo, wash my hands, brush teeth, use loo, take shower, go make breakfast and pack it for later, use the loo, check my email, loo one last time (whether or not I think I need it), then off to work. I won't eat breakfast until I've been at workfor at least 2 hours. After breakfast, it's the loo again. Through out the day, I drink around 2 gallons of water spread out from waking to sleeping. I'll eat another meal a few hours after my breakfast, and do some snacking through out the day. One more loo trip a hour before my shift is over, and home. Then...wait for it...another loo trip before bed, then bed.
