#000000;">From my email last night:

#000000;"> Subject: Do you POOP enough? (serious stuff)

#000000;">From:     Toxic Belly Bug Fix


#000000;">Priority:  Normal 

#000000;">Please excuse the somewhat personal nature of this email, but the information we are about to share below is extremely important for both you and your digestive health.

You may not think that you’re constipated, but in reality, it is VERY likely that you ARE.

You see, constipation is not simply “not being able to go”, or only eliminating once a week…that’s severe constipation. The truth is, a healthy digestive system should be eliminating after every meal.

Are you moving your bowels several times a day, once for every meal you eat? If not, you are suffering from constipation, which will cause a build up of toxins and undigested, rotten, putrid food in your digestive system.

This can make it much harder for you to lose fat while also wreaking havoc on your digestive system and overall health…really bad stuff. Just imagine all that rotted, disgusting food sitting there in your digestive system…yuck!
Fortunately, this can be corrected rather quickly, with a few simple steps.

#000000;"> Now, a few things pop out at me right away with this one. Immediately the subject line is an attention grabber… I mean, I can’t recall every getting an email about my POOP. And to inform me that its serious stuff… hell’s bells! But then I decided it must not be too terribly serious because the priority is set as Normal. No big red flags or anything like that indicating I should make this a top priority read. Then again, I suppose with a subject line like that no red flags are necessary.#000000;">   

#000000;">In other news…#000000;"> 

#000000;">My big exercise is looming large over me right now. I have 9 more days to get it all put together and ready to go. There is the pressure of impressing the big dogs with this one. Really impressing them.#000000;"> 

#000000;">The scope of this exercise is far-reaching… multi-agency participation, lots of victims, lots of moulage…. And lots of planning & coordination. Mostly things are “planned”… now I need to type up all the documents…

  • #000000;">     Planning timeline
  • #000000;">     MSEL (Master Scenario Event List) – this contains all the injects that drive the game forward.
  • #000000;">     Game controller books (2)
  • #000000;">     Game evaluator books (8)
  • #000000;">     Victim books and sick cards (21)
  • #000000;">     Victim folders – with signed waivers, vital signs check list, basic game rules

#000000;">When reading that list it doesn’t sound like much really. But let me tell you… Just that timeline and MSEL thing are taking days and days to do. They are extremely detailed. Here is an example… this is the time window BEFORE the exercise begins:


#000000;">I have to write out the rest of this document… all the way up to 3PM. Once the exercise begins, the messages and response actions become much more detailed. I have to say… this has been a great project for me though.


To add to my bucket o’stress… I am speaking at a symposium the next morning: 

Hyperbaric Treatment of Dive Related Injuries and Illness.

I do emergency management. I don’t do medicine. Originally I was asked to be part of an expert panel then a few days ago that changed to me being a presenter. Ugh. So, in the midst of this exercise tadoo, I’m trying to figure out what the hell I’m supposed to present at a symposium of doctors and the like… something relevant that pertains to my field of knowledge. Shit.




Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Yikes! You have so much on your plate! I just know you’ll do a great job, though, and all the big muckety-mucks will be singing your praises. BTW, I think I’m seriously constipated after reading your article!

    • Wasn’t that email awful? It made me think about all the crud that must be adding to my roundness LOL

      Work is crazy busy but I can’t complain….this time last year I was writing about feeling useless and having no purpose….

  2. Sweetie, I don’t envy you at all. I know you will do a great job, but I sure am glad you’re doing it an not me. LOL The only thing that pops into my mind right now as far as subject matter is triage and what type of emergencies one might expect. You know, doctor stuff. 😉
