I’ve been having strange abdominal issues the past 2 months, characterized by random swellings and a chronic pain springing up on me. I finally went to see the doctor after my diet and exercise changes didn’t affect it, and she recommended these over-the-counter fiber pills. If that didn’t work after 2 weeks, then I should go see a G.I. specialist. But if it did work I would be taking these fiber pills daily. Oh. Okay… Wait, for how long? A month, a few months and then it’s over? No. My physician said “FOREVER“, with a smile on her face like this was a good thing (*cry*).
That’s pretty crappy in of itself, but the worst thing is that these are the jumbo size kinds that you need to drink a large glass of water with or you feel that monster capsule cruelly toying with peristalsis as it takes its sweet time slowly wriggling on down your esophagus. I guess I should start buying caseloads of Metamucil 40 years earlier than I planned to and just call it a day.
