How to Use as Much Toilet Paper as Possible
Warning: the following is nasty.
Have your period while not being able to use a pad or tampon.
Have a runny nose.
Do nose spray multiple times a day.
Have a chronic bladder infection.
Have massive amounts of diarrhea.

I love my doctors, they have saved my life and figured a lot out but with some things they are way too far the other direction.
Sorry for being a downer. I try to keep this blog accurate to what this is actually like for me, and sadly today that is like this.
