Happy Toilet Paper Day

Based on the recommendation of a dear friend, I am now reading The Ultra Mind Solution.

Do you have a broken brain?

According to the book, if you answer yes to any of these questions below, you may have a broken brain:

- Are you depressed, feeling down, and don't have the drive to do anything?
- Do you find it next to impossible to focus and concentrate on tasks?
- Do you find it hard to remember names or where you left your keys?
- Do you get anxious, worried, or stressed-out frequently?
- Does your mind feel foggy, unable to experience the world clearly?

and let me just add a couple of my own...

- Does everything you eat explode right out of you within a matter of minutes??
- Have you ever shit your pants while driving in traffic???

Yes, that is nasty and probably WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION but let's just say the last few months have been extremely unpleasant.

So I'm hoping to fix my broken brain as well as broken bowels.

And you can guess where I spend the majority of time reading...

Oh I almost forgot! Happy Toilet Paper Day.

I am sorry your bowels are giving you trouble, but you sure did give me a laugh!

I laughed so hard and loud just now that it would have scared you.
I'm sorry that your life has been "poopy" since you moved here, "BUTT" I gotta say, you are one of the funniest people I know!It's given you great material, yes? BTW, some of those symptoms are also associated with you are NOT alone.

at least you didn't have to go to a swanky spa and pay a high price for your colon cleanse :). seriously, you need to find a doctor and look into your bowel trouble. maybe you have a parasite???

to a more serious topic, my therapist recommended 'mindful way through depression' - supposed to be a good book (also available in cd) written by some reputable therapists/psychiatric researchers. i have it on hold at the library. apparently, i'm not the only nut case in portland because there were something like 50+ holds on this book :).

hope your reading helps!

You never cease to amaze me.
My brain is broke. My bowels are just a bit angered.

I am trying to stifle my laughter here at work so no one hears me. I need this book. I can answer yes to them all except your last two ;)

I really hope by now, your bowel troubles are, at least, little better.
