Toilet habits

Poop – this post is going to be all about poop. If you don’t want to read, I suggest you stop now. 

Final warning….

Here goes….

My digestive system likes to push food through, very, very quickly sometimes. When I go to the GI doctor, he asks me about my bathroom habits. We discuss that I have diarrhea. But diarrhea has many types and that’s what I’m talking about today….

First, there is the worst kind – I call this “peeing out of your butt”. Something has gone terribly wrong and there is a lava flow of stuff emanating from your behind. It isn’t pretty and after two or three trips to the restroom the event is typically over. If you’ve ever done colonoscopy prep, you know what I’m talking about.

There is the poo that comes out easily and cleanly, until you wipe. After half a roll of toilet paper trying to get yourself clean, you realize there was nothing easy about what just happened. Then you hope that the toilet can swallow all of the toilet paper you just fed it. 

There is the poo that is solid like Oprah described, but feels like you are pooping out the Rocky Mountains. As the poo comes out, it is like driving on a bumpy road, nothing smooth at all. Cleanup is quick and easy, which is awesome. But in the moment, those bumps and ridges can be uncomfortable.

I know poo is not something people like to discuss. But this has been on my mind for days and days. Today I was at a loss for what to talk about, so poo it is!
