Some of you will possibly be a little offended at this sensitive subject, but I will continue regardless.
As you are probably aware, the amount of drugs us RA sufferers consume, can cause a few problems in the movement department. (Internal as well as external).
After spending a number of hours in the bathroom, I decide to rectify the problem. (No pun intended.) Prior to RA when I have suffered this little problem, I have found that dried apricots do the trick.
So I sit down to enjoy the lovely Monty Halls on the Great Barrier Reef...I love it when he dons his wetsuit...yum!, and before I know it, the entire bag of apricots has disappeared. (He distracts me easily.) Not thinking anything of it, I flop into bed once Monty has disappeared from my screen.
An hour or so later, I feel the full blown effects. (Again, no pun intended.) A 2 yr pregnancy has appeared in my stomach...(I was not visited by GOD) and I could have composed a symphony with the rumblings. I shall say no more other than my derriere could have launched the next NASA space rocket.
The moral of this tale is patently obvious!
