Since constipation is a frequent problem of PDPs & so much of our lives are of the serious nature, I hope you don't mind if I print something on the humorous side. Hope you don't think it too silly. :-)
WHO'S BOSS? (author unknown)
When the Lord made Man, all the parts of the body ardued over who would be boss.
The BRAIN explained that since he controlled all the parts of the body, he should be the boss....
The LEGS argued that since they took the man wherever he wanted to go, they should be number one....
The STOMACH countered with the explanation that since he digested all the food, he should be first...
Then the BOWEL applied for the job. The other parts of the body laughed so hard that the bowel became mad and closed up... After a few days, the brain went foggy, the legs got wobbly, the stomach got ill, and they all conceded and made the bowel BOSS.
This is just to prove, that you don't have to be a brain to be boss... JUST A CONTENTED BOWEL.
Thanks to all of you for the new information on PD, new drugs, treatments, etc.
