I am feeling inspired to write about one of my life's taboos: severe anal cramp. And one of the recent things I have started doing to alleviate and avoid it. Yes, it's talking about it - and using a bit of humour. Sometimes my pain is directly linked to stress. I have recently learnt to become very good at noticing when tension starts in my bottom and asking myself what do I need to do in order to look after myself. It usually calls for being assertive which is a right blummin challenge at times. Sometimes it's just plain funny. My work colleagues and boss know about my ibs. We are currently going through a very stressful time at work and when I'm about to be given yet another piece of stressful news I say to my colleagues 'is this information going to make my bottom hurt?' it really lightens the situation and helps me. May be there's times when it wouldn't be appropriate to say this although I also question that. I'm certainly having a much more peaceful time in the rear end department. 😉
