Shiny new addiction

April 15, 2010 at 6:22 pm (general life)

The receptionist at the doctor told me to buy Movocol (a powdered laxative) for bowel impaction (at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what she said I had). I read the instructions carefully and noted that a normal dose is one sachel, and people with bowel impaction need to have eight sachels over a space of six hours – for up to three days.

And I wanted to be sure I’d get better.

So I finished my twenty-fourth laxative sachel a few hours ago. The weird thing is I grew to love the taste. It’s a little like orange tang. And I seriously wish I was drinking another eight sachels tomorrow. (While also looking forward to a recovery from the last three days, presumably to full health.)

It’s possible it’s altered my brain.

But it tastes sooo goooood.

    You’re so right, Paige. I’d completely forgotten about that. This is one addiction I’ll be resisting!
