Warning: Gross stuff.
Been feeling like I have a rock in my gut, right above my belly button. That usually means I'm dangerously stopped up and need to employ some enema technology. I usually have the same feeling when it's been 1-2 weeks since I last defecated. But I've been going more or less normally lately. A few strange things: The other day I had some really bad and sudden waves of pain coming from my left upper abdomen and radiating to the right, along with some mid-back and abdominal cramps. I decided that it was probably poop-related and so I got on the throne and coaxed some very sticky/pastey stuff out. The rock sensation remained, though, and was particularly bad last night. Like, my belly was visibly distended and felt hard. Today I woke up and got two thin poops. Feeling less distended today, thankfully.
So anyway, I'm wondering if I have a blockage that some stuff just managed to get past. Maybe I'll take an enema today after all. If I start feeling distended or in pain again I will definitely.
Today is chicken soup day, though. Let's hope that cures what ails me.
