What do my bowel habits have to do with pelvic pain or urinary problems?
In this week’s blog I am going to answer a question I get frequently when I ask people about their bowel frequency, stool consistency, etc. when they are coming in to see me about urinary issues or pelvic pain. “Why do you need to know that?”
So this week, I have had the first verse of the poem, Chicken Soup with Rice stuck in my head. When son number one was in kindergarten, he and his class had to memorize it. It goes like this:
It’s mid-January 2020! How did that happen already?
How many of you made resolutions for this year? Started strong? Told yourself this year was going to be different?
I have been thinking a lot about what this year may bring. And to do that I have been spending time thinking about and processing what happened in 2019. It’s been almost a full year since my mother died and I stopped being the middle part of the sandwich generation. The last several years, I described myself as the jelly in the PB and J. The peanut butter clings to the bread and acts a bit like the glue while the jelly can ooze out. Sometimes it oozed out towards one side of the bread other times it oozed out towards the other side and when it was just oozing everywhere it was time to remember to breath and remember that “this too shall pass.” It’s different to no longer having my parents as anchors or touch stones. And in sitting in that difference, I have spent a lot of time thinking about what I am going to do with the time I have left, what will be my legacy, how do I want to be remembered.
