You gotta laugh – Vines . . . :)

I swear I’m too old to have a Vine account, but on the days when I was so exhausted that I could barely get out of bed, I spent an hour on my cell laughing at silly Vines. I also believe I have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy when it comes to poop jokes, so Vine is perfect for that!!  Hopefully the below videos make you smile and laugh as much as I do 🙂

You gotta laugh – Haribo Gummi Candy :) . . . .

A friend forwarded me a link to amazon.com about Haribo Gummi candy reviews. At first, I did not know Amazon sold gummy bears and that you could buy a 10 lb pound bag!!   After getting over that shock I noticed something very odd, this candy had over 1,300 reviews. Why does gummy bears have that many reviews on Amazon?!? Then I started to read the reviews and they all had something in common, people were telling their experience of digestive torture that this candy had ensued upon them!!.  There are reviews titled as “I have seen the face of God! . . .Wet-ing my pants, and alternate colonscopy prep”.  These reviews are hilarious!  And I was very surprised because I love gummy bears, but never noticed the candy bothering my stomach . . hmmm  . . .

Anyway, I encourage all my fellow IBDers to read these reviews if you are in need of a good laugh. Not only are the reviews funny, but also relatable 😦  Below is an excerpt from my favorite review titled, “Do not bring to sporting events”

After the excitement of the 1st quarter has ended I take my son out to get him a bottled water and myself a beer. We return to our seats to enjoy our candy and drinks.
…………..fast forward until 1 minute before half time………..
I have begun to sweat a sweat that is only meant for a man on mile 19 of a marathon. I have kicked out my legs out so straight that I am violently pushing the gentleman wearing a suit seated in front of me forward. He is not happy, I do not care. My hands are on the side of my seat not unlike that of a gymnast on a pommel horse, lifting me off my chair. My son is oblivious to what is happening next to him, after all, there is a mascot running around somewhere and he is eating candy. I realize that at some point in the very near to immediate future I am going to have to allow this lava from Satan to forcefully expel itself from my innards. I also realize that I have to walk up 24 stairs just to get to level ground in hopes to make it to the bathroom . . . .  http://www.amazon.com/review/R1JISL51M4FG0D

I’m pretty sure on this day he was suffering from this too . . .  lol

I know at times i have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy lol, but my 3 month colonscopy  follow-up appointment is this week, and i’m very anxious . . .  . . . sometimes you gotta laugh 🙂

You gotta laugh :) – Humor wall . . .

Since my last few posts have been very gloomy and stressful, I have to lighten the mood.  I found some funny images and video that all people that suffer from an IBD can smile at.

I feel like lately it’s been a road of frustration and anxiety for me, but I need to stop and be fortunate for the positives.  Even though I complain a lot about my prescriptions, I am starting to feel better, so something is working and I need to be grateful.  Enjoy below 🙂

I wish I had this reaction when I was told I have stomach ulcers. 🙂

You gotta laugh :)

So since there is no cure for colitis and I will have this disease for the rest of my life, I have to make light of the situation. I cannot allow myself to walk around miserable, unless it’s a flare up.  But you have to enjoy life and laugh at yourself sometimes, I think.  Prior to my colonoscopy I joked with friends stating how I can check off “losing weight” as a New Year’s resolution.  Or like a friend said, you’ll never be fat, eh I’ll take that compliment with a grain of salt lol but it’s good to laugh. I found this crazy vine showing the 4 stages of diarrhea. It is hilarious and relatable smh lol
