I get these spicey hot dog type wieners. If you really want fire, try grilling them on an open flame.

Burn on the way in and definitely burn on the way out. I figure they must be cleaning the entire system by the feeling I get on the exhaust end. Makes sitting down a chore and makes one look for extra padding. And way tastier than prunes.

Hey Smitty, maybe some jalapeno poppers and a couple shot of tequila are in your plans........

I can not eat hot peppers or onions,feels like knives cutting my insides,my grandmother on my fathers side landed in the hospital from onions.I am glad to hear that there are sneaky people who find prunes less than the best tasting snack around,less demand = less pricey :)

Last summer, I had a family member with a ruptured appendix get the max dose of morphine by the emergency room Doc. That, plus the other pain meds, caused an ileus, which is the complete shutdown of the intestinal track. No pooping for a week, just throwing up everything eaten because nothing could move through ! :shock:

They tried every tick in the book, including prunes, and prune juice. MiraLax was the only thing that eventually worked.

Was mine too, until Miralax came along. At this point I use about a 1/4 dose each day, in juice, but it can go in any liquid & you don't know it's there.

I just went & got a certified copy of our marriage certificate. It's wrong! LOL Guess what? We were married an extra 2 months!

I'm starting to get a bit better. Yesterday was the first day that I didn't cry in public. I'm going to force myself to go back to work on Monday.

Miralax, hmmmm? Well I guess I'll try that too! Thanks!

Crying in public... well... when my Dad passed back in December, I didn't cry at all. None.
But when we had to put our Dog down in Feb, I cried from the moment he "went to Sleep" until the next day. Trying to hide it from everyone the entire time. I wore my sun glasses out of the Vets office and held my breath so know one would see it. Couldn't work a lick, that day. It must've just been all bottled up inside me.

Good to hear your getting better Freddy. I agree with Flyer's comment about work - good to keep that mind occupied. I've been going insane in here watching 12 hours of mindless Youtube videos the past week .......... I feel MUCH dumber now. :lol:

I hear you Chris - same happened to me after my grandmother died a few years back. Was totally fine, even through the waiting at the hospital, up until I carried the casket.



Had to go to the doctor's today for the follow-up. He's pretty confident that I can get right back at it, barring trying to move a piano up several flights of stairs. Going to leave the coal duty to the wifey for at least the next 3 weeks - she likes it anyway. :woot: toothy

Since I've been on pain pills for a while, I caught a glimpse of my old self coming back while driving today. I was getting absolutely furious .... for stupid reasons. Everyone seemed to be driving too slow, and I wanted to fight everyone I got behind. How I used to be every day when I was working and drinking full time. It's a wonder I made it this far! Drugs and booze bring out the worst in me. Just glad I was able to figure that out on my own.

System is all back to normal. Turns out my whole system was a bit numb, although not to the extent that Sunny's family member had. Couldn't pee for a few hours after I was home. Had to ... BAD ... but nothing was moving! Hurt like hell too. Over the next 3 days that fixed itself the more time passed. Same with the bowels. Off the laxatives for the past 2 days now and all is well.

Never had an issue with any of that before - especially when I was drinking heavily! Hot peppers and booze - things would just blast out of there ... with FORCE! :funny: Cleanup on isle 5! :woot:
