I know this might be TMI, but here it goes. If you are sqeamish about bodily functions you may want to avoid reading this.
A few months ago I had a prostate exam. It sucks, but I was way past due for a full physical, and I thought I needed the exam. So did my doctor since I wake up every morning around 4 am and have to pee. Luckily there are no prostrate problems, but that drives me crazy, since I have to get up at 5 AM.
But you know whats worse? When I get up at 5, and start getting ready to go to PT formation I always, always, always have to take a dump. ALWAYS! Its not like I can do that a 4. I just don’t have to go right then, except to pee.
And I usually don’t have the urge until I’m freaking dressed! I’ll be ready to head out and all of a sudden the urge to defecate overcomes me. I’ve even waited until the last minute sitting on the can and nothing. I put my spandex and PT uniform on and BAM! Now I gotta go! Its made me very close to being late several times. This morning I slept a little late and had no time. All through the formation I thought I was going to crap myself.
I have got to figure out a way to make this stop. I can’t get up any earlier. I’m not a morning person so its hard enough to get myself going out of the door no later than 0545. I need some kind of reverse laxative.
