God you don’t know how relieved I am to not have that damn blasted fucking catheter anymore. I can walk around naked and not want to vomit at the sight of myself! I CAN PUT MY PENIS INTO THINGS! (Willing things, obviously).

I just feel so…liberated. Still a bit rubbish at ‘doing it myself’, but Jesus Christ it’s so good to be freeeeee.

Anyway – I’m going to do a very un-English thing and go all soppy and Californian on you. Please anyone who’s reading this, if you’re in good health, do me a favour. Whether you’re a man or a woman, fat, thin, young, old -look at yourself naked in the mirror tonight, just you on your own, then put your arms around your body and love the damn thing. Love it love it love it love it. Love the bony bits and the scarred bits and the fat bits. Because no one on earth takes the time to just wallow in health. So wallow, wallow, wallow, like beautiful hippos, give yourself a massage and congratulate yourself for being so absolutely bloody exquisite.

And if you’re not in good health, try to do the same – but if you can’t, know that it well get better. It will.

It nearly always does. x

  1. So… I’m a bit ignorant and have had to do some googling and google imagesing of ‘catheter’. I feel more educated now.
    So… telepathic hug.
    So… is that a common thing for people who have MS?
    Are you doing some hippo-wallowing too now? At least a little bit at least – as it isn’t sundown yet, I know you have other plans then… ah huh ah huh. nudge nudge wink wink.
    Have a lovely day/night/etc.

    • I have been doing a little bit of hippo wallowing yes – also some peacock strutting and cat-like preening. Bladder problems are quite common and catheters are a real nuisance. Hard to live with. Anyway, hopefully I won’t ever have to mention the damn things again and I can just be a hippo forever and ever.
      Roll on sundown. *tilts hat* x
