But before I continue with my story, READ NO FURTHER if you are tired of my “Chew and Poo” stories, or squeamish about biological functions stories :))
All seemed to be fine as late afternoon, I readied my Bug for the show. Then SUDDENLY, I began to feel that telltale GI unrest 30 min before we were supposed to leave to meet our group!! Dang you chemo side effects! I just couldn’t believe my BAD luck, and immediately regretted eating. Dumb me for breaking my own rule of No Eating Prior to Events! I thought of calling all my VW buddies to let them know to go ahead of me. But dang it GI system, NO!, you’re not going to ruin my fun! So off we went to the show, me trying to mentally will my GI to calm down and be ok! Gurgle, gurgle, rumble, rumble...
I really couldn’t believe what was happening to me, and of course, during the rare, leave my house event I planned. But knew I was running out of time and choices, and I had to act fast, Really Fast... Well friends, I will spare you any more GI details here… I think you understand the "urgency" of my circumstances. I’ll just say Thank You to the show organizers for your ever so unbelievably ironic and convenient Porta Potty placement, right by my lil cute Bug, just for me tonight! Go, Julie, Go. Be brave, step carefully into that portable potty, that is saving your life tonight!
|LOL! you can see me back there in front of the strategically placed potties!|
Well on a positive note, there was a hand sanitizer dispenser! And it appeared, or smelled lol, that my potty had been recently "serviced", thank goodness!
As much as I try to be normal, I’m not. As much as I want to do things, I really can’t. As much as I think I can outsmart my chemo side effects and GI system, I can’t. As much as I think I’m in control of my body, I’m not. As much as I think I can win this cancer battle, I have to realize there is absolutely NO predicting what my body is going to do to me! And this is my "forever" situation, thanks to myeloma incurable nature.
|Thank you lil Bug for my super fun and funny adventures!|
