Does anyone else HATE automatic toilets???!!!
 
My work has ALL automatic toilets.  When I assume the position to inspect my poo (everyone knows what I'm talking about...lol).  WOOOOOOOOOOSH...the darn toilet flushes.  I get soooo pissed! 
 
Thanks for listening...I just had to vent!

Wasn't there a (brilliant) post on this a few months back, about covering the sensor with a couple squares (Elaine on Seinfeld: "can you spare a square?") before you get seated.... This method has worked wonders for me since I read about it confirmed it, lol.
Pancolitis >20 years, allergic to all 5ASAs
Tried everything under the sun (natural and alternative)
Some partial success with TSO but was too expensive to keep up 
Currently Remicade and lots of probiotics, tapering pred again, maybe surgery this year

Probiotic I can't believe you quoted a Seinfeld.... I LOVE Seinfeld.

As a UC suffer I can say unequivocally, NO I cannot spare a square.

As for the auto flush things-- I hate them too. Denver International has a bathroom I usually use before the trek into the city (its well hidden and no one ever uses it!) and even without moving the thing will flush and give me an impromptu washing-- or so I like to think. And I speak for all guys when I say this, no guy appreciates his boys getting hit with ice cold water!

Hmmmm...this sensor is flat against the wall, so I don't think the squares would work...lol! It's the strangest sensor. I guess I can get a sticker or masking tape and try that.

I hate auto-flush toilets! I seem to get sprayed in the butt about half of the time I use them. Given how loose my BMs are now, that would be especially nasty!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

Definitely try the sticker - just keep it in your purse or wallet (sorry, but I don't know if you're male or female). I bet that would work!
