The Cleanse

Not long ago I heard a lady saying she was doing a cleanse.

Hello dear reader.

It’s 2:00 in the morning and I’m doing the prep for the colonoscopy I’m having on Friday. Since the last one failed, I have to do it for two days this time. I didn’t even get a cute little prep kit this time. What’s a prep kit? Check out the post called Prep from a few weeks ago. It even has pictures! 😉

Not long ago I heard a lady saying she was doing a cleanse. That sounded like it could be nice. You feel better after cleaning yourself on the outside. It would probably feel even better after cleaning your body on the inside. So I googled how to do it. It’s not nearly as nice as it sounds.

So I’m sitting here in the middle of the night with my stomach bubbling and churning, while getting a short break between rushes to the bathroom. All I can think is why would anyone do this to themselves voluntarily? But since I have to do it, I’m going to call it something nice.

I’m doing a cleanse.

On another topic, I try hard to check out the blogs of everyone who reads mine. Most of them are so good that I follow them. But now in over my head. I’m following so many (plus trying to read the new ones) that I can’t keep up. So I wanted to take a moment to apologise. If I haven’t made it to your blog in the last few days, I will soon. I’m trying. There’s a lot of really good writing out there! That said, I also want to thank those of you who read Finding Life Through Pain. It truly means a lot to me. Thank you!

Until next time…

There's a page with probably more about me than most people care to know. 😉

  1. “I grok this” would also be a better button choice than “like”…
    I’m so sorry you’re going through this (again!!) It’s utterly miserable, and I don’t know how the docs who order this handle it when it’s their turn on the end of the camera. There’s gotta be a secret way to make it tolerable.

    Mad points to you for looking at it as an opportunity to claim the word cleanse and make it much nicer than “middle of the night, oh hell, not again”.

    I always enjoy your posts – even the ones that make me feel sad or angry on your behalf. You really do write beautifully!
