    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Forgot to take my tablets this morning and only remembered when out with the dogs this afternoon. But by the time I got home I had forgotten that I remembered and only just remembered now.

    I'll just start again in the morning.
    I don't like morning people. Or mornings. Or people.

    There were more beans than that, you must have miscounted somehow.

    Ditto. It sounds like a reference to bean counting, which is to do with controlling budgets, but I don't get what that has to do with starting a sentence with "so".

    This pesky constipation. Some of the drugs the hospital prescribed cause constipation whilst I have 3 others (mostly natural) which relieve it.

    I feel like a blob in the middle. I know the right advice to take but I'm still stuck.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    My mum has the flu. I'm terrified of the flu (anything that involves vomiting or breathing issues terrifies me). I'm caught in this loop of wanting to look after her and wanting to run all the way away.

    Also, I'm changing 'net providers tomorrow. Apparently they're going to email me when the switch is complete and I can start using my new router, but I won't be able to see the email if my internet's down.

    Can they text you on your phone when it's done? Or do you have email access through your phone?
    Talk to them. They do this all the time.

    Oh and I've extended my very successful Dry January into February, so it's 50 days without alcohol too.

    I'm currently vying for a gold medal in the Smug Olympics!

    Big irritation of today has been a relapse of my Crohn's, my guts have rumbled all last night and today meaning that I could not go far from a toilet because when I need to go, every second counts
    Poor dog could not understand why we never had a long walk today but kept on going round and round the housing scheme. We still managed 10 miles but we never strayed more than about half a mile in a straight line from home

    I wish I knew what it was that I had eaten to cause the 'flow-through'

    As regards the plumbing, perhaps what you need is some powdered antler?

    I had the opposite problem yesterday, middle of night woke up sore guts, couldn't go despite wanting to, kept on doing loads of mini farts! Lasted all day and I felt hungover, mostly over it today though.
