Yes, you read that title correctly. This post is about a stool. That you use while pooping.
searching the interwebs for a way to relieve hemorrhoids (yeah, I went
there), I found that going number two with your feet elevated was
supposed to help. Wait, what? You want me to poop with my feet propped
After I finally stopped laughing
and was able to contain myself, I decided I needed to try this for
myself. Anyone who has experienced this pregnancy- and
childbirth-related pain in the ass knows that, short of lighting a roman
candle and sticking it up your rear, you are willing to try just about
anything for some relief. And, good glory hallelujah, relief it was. Not
only did going with my feet elevated off the floor make going much
easier, it was like being hugged while on the toilet. It definitely
helped get rid of my unwanted backdoor friends. Hey, they were 'roid
heads who hang out with a bunch of assholes, anyway.
our discovery coincided perfectly with The Quiet Contemplator starting
potty training, so we just use her potty stool as our poop stool and no
one is the wiser. That is, until I told the bajillionty people (12) that
read this blog. Oops.
Anyhoodle, since I have
absolutely no sense of shame or boundaries, I just thought I would share
this piece of advice with my mommy amigas. Because, let's face it,
ladies, we all know what havoc having kids can raise on the old poop
shoot. Here's to a future filled with pain-free poos, mamas.
