How often does someone check in to see how things are .... moving ....?? 💩
Yes, for real. As someone who struggled with constipation for most of my adult life, this struggle can be REALLLLL, and really painful.
It wasn't that long ago that I cleaned out our medicine cabinet. I reorganized and threw away the norm--expired cold medicine, stray bandaids, the bottle of lotion with one squeeze left in it.
Miralax, stool softeners, beano, benefiber, metamucil..... among what was pulled out of that cabinet--the pool of over the counter supplements, meds and aids for.... 💩💨😳(or lack thereof 😫)
The struggle was real for a long time yo.
There was a span of a few years where I was terrified to eat anything because it seemed anything I ate caused me to blow up like a balloon — literally, my belly like the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man. And don’t get me started on the frequent gas. 🥺
It was embarrassing. It was hard to talk about. And it felt shitty #punintened 😉
And for the longest time, I was putting a bandaid on the problems. I know what it's like to walk into a drug store willing to drop any amount of 💰 for any sense of relief or hope for regularity. It took a reallyyyy long time for me to realize that I would never solve the problem without getting to the root of the issue.
That started with the foods I was eating, and learning what works best for my unique body. 🍏
