This is exactly how I feel when I hear this song and I love this comic forever.
Oh hey I need help on my exam too, maybe I should try this…
if you don’t terrify people a little bit then what’s the point.
I need to have as much wild sex as possible so one day I can become an inappropriate old lady that blurts out things like “when I was your age I got a concussion after being bent over a desk” and then my family can be like “grandma please, you’re making easter dinner really uncomfortable” and it’ll be great

Frozen Poop Pills Fight Life-Threatening Infections »
The antibiotic-resistant bacteria C. difficile can be deadly. Fecal transplants often can cure infections but have a major ick factor. Capsules of fecal matter deliver the cure more politely.
Yesterday I found a text from my dad with only the title of this article, the link, and instructions to post it on my blog.
Let’s add this to the growing list of strange interactions that have become completely normal in my life.
You want to talk about poop? okay cool, lets do it.
Anyway, I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it, but I’ve had the pleasure of having Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff) not once, but twice.
Fun fact #1: If you’ve had it once, you are actually somehow more susceptible to getting it again. And it can be harder to fight off.
I was lucky though, both times antibiotics obliterated the bacteria quickly and effectively, but the second time I did have to do a much longer round of Vancomycin (a whopper in the antibiotic world) to make sure it was gone. And after that I felt like I was having to take in stool samples to the lab at least monthly. C. Diff presented for me just like an Ulcerative Colitis flare, both times I actually had no idea I just thought I was incredibly sick. The second time we figure I was suffering from it for at least 3 months, and that was when I ended up at the Mayo clinic- because I wasn’t responding to anything my GI was throwing at me and he didn’t know what to do anymore.
Turns out all he had to do was order a damn stool sample.
"But she didn’t present with a fever, as is normal with all C. Diff patients."
Fun fact #2: You don’t have to have every single symptom to have the infection/illness/disease. Everyone is different.
Anyway, Fecal Transplants started gaining momentum after my second wind of C.Diff. It was never put on the table for me, but I think it was casually mentioned in at least one appointment somewhere to gauge my reaction.
I’ve always thought it was kind of gross, and right I’m not actually sure if I could down these pills knowing what they are and what’s inside of them…. But when I think back to how awful I felt, when it seemed like someone was inflating rotting balloons in my colon… Yeah, I would have downed a whole bottle if I thought it would take the pain away.
and I think I would gladly do this over antibiotics. Those things terrify me, because they basically wipe your gut clean- eliminating not just the bad stuff but also the good stuff. So, a treatment that actually adds healthy bacteria rather than wiping out everything? I think I could get behind that, too.
It might be gross, but I think they’re on to something here.
BUT Fun Fact #3: C. Diff occurs in the colon, so I guess never having to worry about it again can go on my list of perks of not having a colon anymore.
