Karma is an A-hole

Funny coming off the heels of my last post, maybe karma is out to get me. I've lost 3 pounds. How? I just spent the majority of the last 48 hours in the bathroom. Ugh.

After the first 24 hours, I had considered going to the emergency clinic, but was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a bathroom fast enough. I finally found relief after multiple doses of Pepto, cups of tea, a hot shower and A&D (my lifesaver, must buy stock in it).

Insult to injury: we only had that recycled, 1/2-ply, feels-like-rubbing-your-patootie-with-a-broken-piece-of-the-Berlin-Wall toilet paper and it hurt me. A lot. Eff global warming, I need my Charmin.

Spending today at home resting and mainlining Gatorade.

Yuck, I'm sorry! We had a similar thing in our house this weekend. Mine was coming from the other end and M's was like yours. Hope you are on the mend!

Is it bad that I'm sort of chuckling about the TP? Sorry. I hope you feel better soon because that really doesn't sound like fun at all.

Blech. I hope you feel better soon!

I too have spent the majority of the day in the bathroom, but unfortunately it was self inflicted (ate way too many grapes). I hope you feel better soon!

ooooo....That is bad. That happened to me the week before we went to Hawaii and I lost 4 pounds...needless to say I put them RIGHT back on when I had my first solid food on the airplane.

I hope you get to feeling better soon..I too had the 1/2 ply tissue and rediscovered my love of Desitin. I have no idea why we had it in our home....we just did. :)

I swear I felt some tree bark when I wiped.

Good luck sweetie!!

yes Charmin (or cotonelle) for our bums! we should indeed make a point of keeping a spare roll of soft TP around for situations like this.
sorry to hear about your weekend in the bathroom and hoping that by now you are indeed doing much better

I hope you feel better soon - you made me lol with the Charmin comment.

YIKES! I once made the mistake of reaching for the Kleenex tissues with menthol on the counter at my Mom's house when she ran out of toilet paper.


You know, speaking of pained wipes and all.

Love the Berlin Wall TP comment. Sorry you're sick though.

So sorry you've been so sick. The bit about the TP also made me chuckle. I hope you can get your hands on some of the soft and comfy stuff :-) Although I hope you won't need it! Take care and keep getting lots of rest!

PJ said...

yea, Karma is definitely an A-hole.

So sorry you've been sick! I hope you have a speedy recovery!

I go all out when buying toilet paper. Charmin, all the way. I have considered bringing a pack to work with me because OMG school TP is the worst!

About your previous post, I had heard that about weight a few years ago and was also astonished. I have a friend who is going through adoption from China and I think she's loosing weight for that reason, although I am not bold enough to ask her.

Feel better.

so sorry! my hubby always used to insist on buying the recycled crap paper until he ended up with the runs. Now we keep a roll of the good old softy stuff for those unexpected ass-plosions.
