I Thought I Had Problems…

This is a random post, although on a serious biological matter.  Something everyone does, both human & animal…

I posted about this because my doctors started me on a pain medication regimen recently & one of the fears I had about being on what they gave me is that I tend to get really bound up (constipated) from those types of medications even just taking sporadic doses sometimes (this is no matter what I take or do).

I couldn’t help but feel bad, but also see a tinge of solidarity in the tribulations of sloths & some of their habits.

I feel this way for a few reasons:

1.  I can only imagine the pain they must endure with something most of us take for granted.

2.  I have some friends & LAM sisters who pass around cute sloth & other baby animal photos when we need cheering up (& the article had one).

They are not my favorite animal, or even the cutest out there – but there’s just something about them I still find charming & interesting.

So here I have it, the next time I complain about being bound up  I’m going to try & be grateful I’m a human & not a sloth.

I’ll look back at this post & remind myself that some of my issues may only be temporary, not necessarily a way of life.

(In saying this I am also not attempting to minimize or poke fun at anyone who struggles with bowel issues either.)

(Amazing the things we think about when we are in the hospital or at random moments…)

  1. I had no idea Sloths had this problem. Though it makes sense that their bowels work slowly like the rest of their bodies. Xx
