Constipation

Our friends Sue Vincent and Mary Smith are both fighting Cancer right now. Both have hit another capital C. I am not talking about chemo nasty as that is. No I am talking about Constipation! Well all I can say is I have been there and it is horrendous! It may not seem like a big health issue but believe me it is. It certainly is not glamorous. So I am hoping to bring a smile to their faces and anyone else in the same or similar position. They have both discussed constapation in the comments on Mary’s blog and Mary has written about it at length, so I am betraying no secrets.

So to any of you who don’t do bodily functions or honesty perhaps this is not a poem for you .

Ruddy Constipation

Oh! This bloody constipation
It is causing me such consternation
I try my best eating veg and fruit
But do I shift it, no, I just toot.
Oh! The pain is so extreme
I push and push, grimace and scream.
Just to pass a motion now seems like a dream
The truth is more a nightmare
This dam shit is set on staying there.
I stand, I sit, I squat but the body is not playing
That,the laxative will work soon! I am truly praying!

**********

So I am sending this out to everyone suffering with cancer or any illness or disability. Keep fighting and keep taking the laxative!

Mary and Sue keep fighting!

    I agree it is horrible. Having IBS it has been my nemesis on too many occasions.

    In this modern age, why is there no decent remedy that actually works!

    I can totally relate! The meds I take with curiously have side effects of constipation AND Diarrhea. Go figure. Luckily (perhaps) the constipation always seems to win 😦

    I take three prescriptions for my blood pressure and one for depression (a side effect of having to take the other three) and learned that a side effect of all of them is constipation, so I can sympathize with your friends.

    Thanks for your lovely comments about me and Sue, Willow. Your poem sums up exactly what it’s like to have constipation. I’m so glad I’m free of it for now πŸ™‚

    To Mary and Sue, wishing them well in their battle with cancer. I’m so sorry to hear…. I liked your poem — it’s refreshing to be open about such a common problem! 😬
