Ya'll know how I like to get all in depth and personal on this em' here blog...
But is there a limit to just how personal one lonely, late night blogger should become?
I guess we're gonna find out!
My sister suffered an injury to her posterior region on the first day of our cruise last month. Since that time the aforementioned region of her buttocks and you-hoo has been a daily, if not hourly concern and topic of conversation with both friends, family, hospital staff, hair stylists and heaven knows everyone and anyone who dare asks, "What happened?" I cant begin to say how thrilled I am that my sister is finally starting to get back up on her feet (quite literally) after nearly six weeks of very restricted movement. I also cant begin to say how thankful and proud I am of my Mother, who has watched and tended that wound so fiercely I'm sure even Nurse Ratchett wouldn't have dared question her dedication.
Through it all my sister has had to withstand more discomfort than I could possibly imagine but surprisingly enough, having to divulge the rather intimate and private nature of her injury has not been one of them! Though that is not to say its not been a little awkward for others! It is always interesting to see who is able to speak opening and frankly about it in medical terms vs those who just cant find the words to begin to preface a question that involves terms for the "nether regions" ... then of course there are those who stick to the four-year-old's versions... like wee wee or bum hole.... Or "buttocks" like Forrest Gump ("I was shot directly in the butt-ocks!")
Like a woman who's gone through childbirth some times you hit a point in life where you just cant be bashful about the female form... and yet, despite six weeks of having to talk about it I still find myself saying things like "dipsee" (as a friend calls it) or "poody poo" as it's known to another friend...
I'm a little ashamed that as a 27-year-old woman I'm still so juvenile when it comes to discussing the female form... though I'm sure there are those who'd argue that it's indecent and unladylike to even write this?
Are you comfortable discussing anything and everything? Did you change after you had children?
Or is this all just far too personal?
