LAUGHTER THE BEST MEDICINE
True Story- Apparently when on the loo 'struggling away' trying to pass some 'smashed glass' (what it feels like), apparently I talk to the stuff and make all of these interesting sounds, groaning, squealing, wimpering and interesting comments??
Well I was in hospital for two nights (due to bad chest pains) in the toilet and a few other people were in their own cubicles (the shared bathroom on the ward has a few plus showers) and word got out about this guy suffering away.
And they mimic, some quite well................
So those in my room have a good laugh (in good fun, nothing awful) as they know it is me. While others............ who knows what they are saying?
LESSON-In public cringe and bear it.........LOL *You can't it is too painful.
LATEST TORTURE - Two nurses introduced it to me at hospital.
Folk with an irradiated 'feaces output unit' know that you can barely touch the area and any thought of using a wire scraper (what toilet paper or a wash cloth feels like) is out of the question.
So they shared this idea of sitting on a SOFT pad of saline solution.
So you do and '.....@#$^*)(&^$%^^%%$%^^^.....'' you told them everything they wanted to know. And even tried to think up state secrets to share to get it to stop. But it worked..... cleansed you well..... but made you cry....
Haha..... If I was Catholic that was the time for a father to hold confession...LOL

*Decided to live to 100 as I will get a telegram from Her Majesty the Queen when 100yrs old. I so, so want one.
Am a Salvation Army chap so I complete 'knee drill' (prayer) to the Commander in Chief often. For myself personally this helps me through.
