I’m on a roll today…so to speak!
This really isn’t about diverticulitis…or fiber for that matter…but interestingly, I joined a diverticulitis group on Facebook. If you have ever had a bout of diverticulitis, you understand why. It was kind of amazing to me the different recommendations given by doctors to the multitudes who follow this particular group. Eat seeds and nuts, don’t eat seeds and nuts, high fiber, low fiber, dangerous antibiotics, no antibiotics, Metamucil, never heard of Metamucil, I CANT STAND DRINKING METAMUCIL? Seriously? Bottom line is if you follow rules for good dietary and colon health, you can probably stave off diverticulitis. The big problem I see is opposing and contradictory advice from doctors we depend on to dole out that advice for our particular problem…and next, what happens when you have a weak moment and stray from the perfect, healthy diet. Which somehow leads me to toilet paper.
I buy in bulk (no pun intended) from Amazon Prime. These huge number of toilet paper rolls are delivered by the USPS to my door by a weary postal carrier. I had a discussion with a girlfriend one night on the merits of different brands of toilet paper as we were placing our separate orders together. We all have our favorite brands as well as having our favorite way to use it. i.e. Fold or crinkle. I’m guessing she is a folder! And I’m guessing she places the toilet paper to roll off Over rather than Under.
When the t.p. arrives, I fill the shelves (plural) above each of the toilets so they are readily available. Because everyone can agree running out of toilet paper is one of those extremely irritating events in our life!
This morning, I opened cabinet door number 1 and there was no toilet paper 😡. I went to cabinet number 2 and there were only 4 rolls left on the top shelf. My first thought was WHAT THE H is he doing with all of the toilet paper? Thought number 2…what could he be doing with the toilet paper, why am I blaming him. THought number 3…someone must be coming in and stealing it! Thought number 4….you really need to find something to do today to occupy your mind.
Until next time….
Good luck! My sister had it and finally had to have surgery–she really has to watch what she eats now. I hope you’re able to best it!
The contradictory advice is confusing. I’ve read about the benefits of lots of extra fiber, and I’ve read that if your digestive system moves slow, it’s not that there’s not enough, it’s that it moves slow and more fiber is just going to make it worse. So if that’s an issue, trail and error I guess. Not really how you want to figure out diverticulitis tho. And I would think nuts and seeds would be a no no. Only makes sense. Anyway I hope you’re feeling better and you find the thief.
