Part 11. It was strange – eat, then run to the toilet.

The term is “explosive diarrhea” and those who use it aren’t kidding. It left my body with force! I would eat, sit on the toilet, and then be hungry – because I was empty! I noticed that my weight was dropping. At first, I didn’t care that I lose a pound here and there – […]

As a child, when we said we had to “go potty”, urgency was controlled by the question, “Do you need to go #1 or #2? #2 was the key that caused the vehicle to be stopped at the nearest bathroom because Mom did not want to be faced with “poopy underwear”. I’ll never forget hearing […]
