No, I’m not talking about that terrible shot of you from an awful angle on your work night out, or that one where you think you look amazing and then when you look back you have a bogey…
After 12 years of IBD, more colonoscopies than I can count, several shitting accidents in public and going on national TV to discuss poo, I thought I had faced all my most embarrassing moments. I have shared the majority of these cringe inducing events with you lot, earning me the moniker The Poo Lady!
Yet today, I have sunk to an all time low.
I am working away in Wales and struggling with this prolapse, only it has got worse and now I think I have a pouch prolapse too. My consultant asked me to send a photo. No, he doesn’t want one of my lovely press shots, or that hilarious photos of me dressed as the Crack Fox when I went to see the Mighty Boosh. Nope, he wanted a photo of my damaged arse and vag.
This morning was the worst photo shoot of my life… There was no way I could ask my photographer husband to get involved in this, he’d get all arty and be thinking about composition and lighting and so I have taken selfies of my butt. I’m sure I have warned my kids about this!!!
Worry not, I’m not planning to share them here! These are for Mr Brown’s eyes only! (Poor man!)
I know it sounds odd, but he is fab and this way he can get an idea of what’s going on without delaying treatment, it takes a while to get an appointment with him and so it is a good way for him to ‘see me’ without ‘seeing me’.
Just when I think my days can’t get any weirder, this happens…
