With everything else, my prostate's acting up. As if dying weren't enough, now I have to go a-dribblin' to the grave. (Hang on, guys, this is both kind of clinical, and dead serious.)
The symptoms are there. Needing to pee yet being unable to finish, slow cutoff of 'the stream', and excess dribbling (that word again!). About the only one I'm missing is an impaired romantic life, but I'm so far past being able to worry about that, it's almost funny. Almost.
The main issue...pardon the pun...is that I have to use the facilities at odd times, and in an odd way. I'm used to standing, and getting it done.
But standing for any period hurts too much to be possible, so...wait for it, ladies, here's your revenge...I have to sit.
And wait. And wait.
But sometimes that isn't enough, so the next step is...let's all shout it together...EXTERNAL PROSTATE MASSAGE!
It's not fun when you're healthy, but I run out of energy all too quick, and..."Uh, Barb?"
No pre-nuptial counselor ever mentioned this.
Barb's a trouper, and that's good., because worse is to come.
Yep. Internal prostate massage.
Bring a rubber glove. An enema helps.
Funny thing. Humiliation isn't half as humiliating when you can laugh about it.
A fitting musical accompaniment might be CCR's Who'll Stop The Rain? Along with a turned-on tap, it may help.
We're linked with Messy Marriage's From Messes To Messages - please drop by for some really great marriage resources.
A bit of news..."Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart" has come home! Tate Publishing has gone south, and I regained the rights, so it'll soon be available in both Kindle hardcopy versions once again. In the meantime, if you absolutely can't wait (!), you can still get used copies from Amazon.
I have another blog, "Starting The Day With Grace". The focus is a grace quote from someone you might not expect (like, say Mick Jagger) and a short commentary. I hope you'll join me.
Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.
If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.
Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
