It’s poop day!

So i am sat looking rather glam in my white robe and socks listening to Busted on repeat.

I am that hungry I want to eat the couch and all I can smell is food. Some kind of sadistic mofo made people fast for 24 hours and then schedule them bang on lunch time for their procedure I’m telling ya!

I am pretty gosh darn proud of how well i have handled the last 24 hours. I have done so well to be mindful and present.

Just waiting now for the Dr to come and give me the poop!! When the nurses ask what procedure i am getting done they look at me stupid when i say a poop transplant haha then ask a million questions… they must be new to the world of sharing poop too guys! We are in this together!

I decided to treat myself to sour worms and sushi after and i cannot wait!

Well… for now i am going to try and maintain my calm and listen to busted!

See you soon!! Love B xxx

Thunder poo!

Well… just as i was starting to think the drink wasn’t working. Helloo thunder poo!

All i think of in this situation is Ghost town! The scene where Ricky Gervais is prepping for his scope and gagging on the drink! Makes me giggle at least!

Hoping that it clears quickly and I can go to bed dreaming of the sushi I am getting as a treat for dinner tomorrow!!

I know this will all be so worth it in the end!! The sooner I get better the sooner I can go on honeymoon prt 3, Get my life back fully andddd the sooner Scott and I can have mini Viney’s to annoy you all!! 😉

FMT

Feacal Matter Transplant.

Taking the poop of a healthy person and putting it into a person with IBD.

They do this in hopes of reactivating the guts microbiome to working correctly.

So Scott has kindly said he will donate his poop for me. He has a cast iron stomach so Im pretty stoked! (Taking your husbands shit to a whollle new level)

We had to both go through lots of testing to make sure we were compatible and to ensure that there were no underlying diseases that could be passed onto me. Including obesity… so if your donors BMI is over 30 they won’t transplant.

They conclude that your body absorbs the bacteria of your donor which in turn has their ‘immune system’ and that absorbs too. In layman terms… or in Bobbie terms.

It is pretty interesting if you think about it! All those drugs on the market and poop can help!

There is a 50% chance of it working! Plus i get to be a guinea pig for medical science and hopefully help lots of UC/Chrons sufferers in the future.

The only thing thats bad about it… i have to physically prepare the ememas for use every 3 days..

DISCLAIMER… IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH STOP READING HERE!

💩💩💩💩💩💩

To prepare the enema i have to take a sample from Scott morning or night and dissolve in a saline solution. Once disolved i need to strain through gauze and then insert into my rectum at night. I need to do this 3 times a week for 2 months.

After 2 months they will recheck my bowel and if there has been improvements they will continue the treatment, once a week for a year. If there are no improvements then they will cease treatment.

So! Drink one down! Drink two about to start! Will keep you posted my poop loving friends!

PAST WEEKS

Hey guys! Sorry it has been a while since I posted. Life just gets heavy sometimes.

I finally hit my wtf moment and took action and since then it has been a pretty amazing learning curve.

6 weeks ago I enrolled myself in a personal development course with the awesome Emily Chadbourne from A crazy thing called life (Check her out on FB she is amazing). I had participated in her free course and just HAD to be apart of her 12 week intensive course and wow! 6 weeks in and the changes already are immense!

Just so we are clear from this point out the word Anxiety is now Bubbles. So if you hear me talking about Bubbles… you know what I mean!

6 weeks ago I was a ball of bubbles, depression, anger, resentment and Jealousy. All things that as a human I am not… so it was hard! So hard! I was also in a pretty bad flare.. dropped 6 kilo in a week, couldn’t eat and feeling crapola!

Fast forward 3 weeks – with the help of steriods I now eat like a pig! Have started to regain the weight, able to adult again and… started to add new and fun things to my life that have been absent for so many years due to my bubbles.

I am now:

1. Eating a Preservative Free diet. So far so good and a week in my skin is amazing!

2. Walking! I have walked the dogs and gone for walks myself for fun for the last 5 days in a row! It feels sooo good!

3. Running! I ran around the block yesterday! I have never been a runner at the best of times.. let alone when in a UC flare (Running for me accelerates the urgency for the loo)

4. Shopping in town centres. This for me is huge. I usually only shop in small shopping centres that have toilets. So was lovely to be out im the sunshine spending time with family.

5. Managing my emotions. I am learning how to feel something and transcend through it… learning still.. but even small steps are amazing. I mean, the day before a scope i am usually so filled with bubbles I sleep all day and don’t speak. Today though I went for 3 walks, Cleaned the house, played with the dogs, pampered myself, drove to Melb and now Writing this blog! Pretty amazing feat tbh! I did this through guided meditation and visualization, affirmations and GRATITUDE!

So I have to say a huge thanks to Em for showing me that I CAN do it and that I am a MotherF#$%&ing Legend!

So.. tomorrow I am having a Feacal Matter Transplant. Poop from a donor inserted into my bowel in the hopes it restarts my dodgy microbiome into being normal!

I am nervous to drink the disgusting lemony pond water in half an hour but I just keep thinking of the amazing outcome… super poo! Courtesy of my husband!

So… blog post part one down… I will add more about what FMT is (that i know of) and how it all goes through the next 24 hours to keep you updated… if you’re interested. If not. Soz guys!

Love B xx

Life can be a right bitch!

Allll the feels again today! Whyyy! I literally just got myself in a place where I was ok with ‘The baby ban’ and I was happy to wait a little and now… BAM! Allll the feels.. after seeing something I knew would upset me… but I looked anyway! Why does life just hit you in the gut when you just start to feel good?! I am so confused…. surely these feels should be lessening each day?

Today I am angry. Angry I have UC, angry I have little control over progressing in life and Angry over social media portraying only the good side of life.

Today my mind has the power.. and it sucks!

Fark! I am off to cry in the shower and have imaginary conversations and will be back with some more uplifting content.

Tuesday: Poop Update

Today was a good day in terms of good news. My body did well until 2pm and then started to flag a little.

But… I wanted to share my good news!

I saw my specialist today and have been approved for FMT. Which is pretty much a poop transplant.

They are going to take my husbands poop and transfer it to me in the hope it will restore my microbiome in my gut and promote remission and healing in the bowel.

What I know so far is that I have to blend my husbands poop and use it as an enema! Gross right!? But if it works I don’t care.

Hopefully start treatment in 2 to 3 weeks. I cannot wait to see if it works and will keep you updated!

We are taking ‘Handling shit together’ to a whollleee new level! 😉

Here is to achieving remission!!!
