Ok, just a warning, this is pretty gross and I wasn’t going to write about it. But it is something that happens with folks and ms, so I decided I had to throw it in here. I promise not to get to gory.

One of the possible issues with ms is a loss of bowel control. I haven’t been looking forward to this, but it seems when I run I get an urge to poop. Thank goodness for that home builder/renovator economy I have been talking about and their port-a-johns. Well today I headed to the park when the urge came on. Since it was after 7 AM I knew the bathrooms would be open, well they weren’t. I turned around and headed off to the closest port-a-john when oops! I felt justified in saying “shit”. So off I went (walking, shuffling, whatever…) to get cleaned up. Of course two slow walkers appeared in my path. I didn’t want to get in front of them, so I slowed down, but eventually it was ridiculous and I was looking like a stalker. So I passed them and got to the J-a-J.

So I won’t belabor the point, but it happens and I want to share the bad as well as the good.
