Honk! *peek* Do you look?

I've got a head cold. Every morning, I get out of bed and blow my nose. It's a horrendous mess of snot and blood that vastly exceeds what can be held by a tissue, so I use a paper towel.

Every morning, after I empty my head, I LOOK at it. Just a quick peek before I toss the heavy, wet mess into the trash.

And every time, I am grossed out.

Why? WHY? WHY do I do this?!

What about you? Do you peek? And for the love or God WHY?

I always look at my snot. You know that whole deal where newly made mothers just have to look at their baby? It's kind of like that.

I like take a look at a good volume of just about any material that comes out of my body. There's not much more simple and satisfying in this life than a good kleenexful or filled toilet or coated Q-tip or pus-splattered mirror.

I don't know what it is. Am I weird? I thought that was normal.

Like Baraka, I like to look at everything that comes out of my body. There is medical reasons for doing this, but those are excuses to go "DAMN! That was HUGE!".

For most of the past 4 weeks, my snot from the left nostril has been the color of Mountain Dew. It was a sign of a sinus infection, but likely not one that antibiotics would help, so I've watched it go back to normal in the past few days as it all cleared up. `

Baraka, this is lyrical genius!
Anyone here remember 'Roseanne Roseannadanna'?

Even my hypochondriacal sister is 'normal' (kinda)

She's 46 years old and she still requests of mom (a retired RN)
to inspect her turds in the toilet to see if they look, okay.

I not only look at it, I show it off to everybody around me if it's impressive...

I also do this with scars I just pulled off, massive balls of earwax, and particularly hefty poos.

"Hey, babe, check this log out! It's enormous!"

I know I'm immature and gross, but, meh, I get a thrill out of this shit.

I'm tiltedly twisted, GG, with a little titled in there for good measure.

I do keep an eye out on the whole color of snot, amount of ear boogers, etc. just so I can make sure everything is as it should be. When green came out of my ear, I caught it quickly because I looked at it. I don't check out my shits very often, but I have been known to ponder what they hell I ate that was that green once or twice.

This thread reminds me of something that happened years ago...

I was at work one morning and got a phone call from my boyfriend. He wanted to tell me that he had just delivered the most amazing poop, and that his sphincter felt GREAT.

I still laugh every time I think about that.

My family has noticed that our dogs and cats would celebrate
this wonderful feeling as well. They would tear around the house with glee
after a healthy evacuation. "Kickin' up the rugs," has become a family

Yes! My dog does that too. and I think that settles it: if dogs celebrate an amazing shit, then by god I should too!

I also check out the snot. I'm prone to bloody noses so I'm looking for blood. Also it is epically satisfying to blow a good wad into a kleenex




....of snot. i was referring to snot.

This is too bizarre that this would be on here today. I have a brother that moved to CA three years ago. He is my buddy. We were party pals, shit kickers, even roommates for a period......My point being I miss him. We keep in touch but it's hard to pull pranks and mess with each other over the wire. The other day I opened a picture mail and staring back at me was a pocelain throne with a fresh steamer stretched out in it! "Hope you're not having a shitty day" was the text. I rebutted (LOL) with my own pic mail and quip "Your now on my shit list" !! This has goned back and forth everyday and it is becoming quite a challenge to come up with a witty shitty caption and a good pic. I've started really packing away the fiber!

OF COURSE!!! Life keeps me away from the good 'ol TFP for a bit and THIS is the first thread I click on?!!

Flog me all you want to, I am guilty of watching Oprah occationally (since the 80's) and caught an episode with Dr. OZ on. They were discussing poo's and that a healthy one should form an "S" in the bowl. Uh, apparently I'm not normal or healthy, I've never seen one. Floater's, sinker's, in-between's but never a complete, continual "S".

More to the topic, I think it's obvious that I check the toilet bowl. I'll use the excuse that I have an IUD and am checking that it hasn't been expelled, yeah that's the ticket! I also check the tissue after I blow my nose and the Q-tips after I clean my ears. I think it's normal to keep tabs on the excretions that come out of our bodies (okay, there are some exceptions. Or maybe not ).

Really though, if you had colon cancer and one of the first signs was blood being expelled, how the hell would you catch it until way too late if you never look when you're in there? Bah, I'm probably sensitive because my Dad has had a lot of colonoscopies and I'm always the designated driver for them.

The expulsions of your body can be a good indicator of health. Colour and consistency are important, regardless of which particular hole it came out of. I don't admire anything lovingly, but taking a look just makes sense.

Regarding defecation, it's not just colon cancer. All manner of intestinal issues will show up prominently in the bowl. I have Crohn's Disease, and when I see the doctor one of the first questions always asked pertains to the frequency and nature of my bowel movements. I more or less have to look as part of my regular health maintenance.
