IMODIUM SAVED MY LIFE by thebookworm on 26 May 2003 10:20pm
Every holiday I have been on I make sure that I have bought my supply of Imodium,as they say One can never be to carefull,it really is a life saver.Im free to try any exotic dish knowing that I will be well and truly blocked up,If anything Imodium is too good,It stops any stomach upsets,BUT well and truly constipates you...Just ask Michael...David(STILL PUSHING)..

Awww.. sounds painful. Yeah Imodium is amazing. I realy keeps you from having the Hershey squirts, but i'm sure it blocks you up. It has never done that to me though. hehe. When i went Mexico a few years ago, Imodium was my best friend...Damn Montezuma's Revenge...tee hee. Luckily i didn't get it bad....

Had too much of my mother in law's awesome green bean casserole this weekend. The mighty "I" has saved me, too.. as I sit here at work..trying to not let the gurgling of my belly drown out everything...
It seems to have kicked in, I think I'm safe for now.
It's the french fried onions on top that do it to me every time.

Well folks, I'll let you in on a secret. If you find Immodium a bit too harsh, and you need something that works as a bit of a cork, here's the great Aussie bush remedy......

Condensed milk.

You know, that sticky sweetened stuff that comes in a can or tube? Have a tablespoon or two of that (don't drink any water or anything for at least 5 minutes either or it will dilute it) and you'll be dandy. It's known in my family as "cork in a can" or "liquid cork"!!!

I know, you're all thinking "YUCK!! Dairy products on a dodgy tummy! Never!" but nothing works better, I can assure you! And it's a lot more pleasant than popping a pill, 'cause condensed milk is yummy! You won't get that concreted feeling that immodium can give.

Or you can just eat a junket tablet but that is kind of gross and you won't go for a week afterwards!!

i tell you how i found out about the loosening effects of prunes . when i first started working with my dad we had a shop that sold health foods as well as homebrew . i was weighing up a bag of prunes eating a few as i went . they are very tasty but the inevitable happened :0) i agree with miss m though prune juice is just ugh freaking awful .

Oh yes Prunes...I discovered the real effect of prunes when I worked in my first job(17 years of age)..I worked with a very nice elderly gentleman called Bernard who after lunch break would always go to the shop Tescos to buy fresh fruit..One lunch break Bernard gave me a bowl of Prunes,they were lovely,and me being such a nice fellow I voluntered to go to Tescos for Bernard..On the way back from the shop the dreaded Prunes decided to try and make an appearance...I never realised I could run so fast,that day I found out that I was very fit..Today I swear by Peppermint tea before bed I always have a cup,It is very soothing for the stomach..I hope that these words of wisdom have helped you in some way...David..
