The man went to Reddit to ask for advice
From time to time, I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of us have issues when it comes to keeping things ticking… down there.
Although the consequences might be amusing to the more immature among us (and I include myself in that), it’s certainly no laughing matter for the person suffering.
If you’ve ever changed up your diet, you’ll know that things can easily get backed up, or you may have the opposite problem, and find yourself rushing to the restroom every 10 minutes.
Well, one man recently found himself struggling to keep things moving, and found himself in a bit of an ethical dilemma afterwards, specifically, concerning his wife and her actions. Things got awkward for the couple after the husband started the Keto diet, and it left him feeling a little backed up.
In a post on Reddit, the anonymous man explained that his Keto diet has been good for many things, such as weight loss, but not so much for his digestion.
“The only downside so far is I have been getting constipated fairly regularly,” he explained. Concerned, he mentioned his problem to his wife and magically a few days later, he was dealing with the opposite problem – as he put it, “violent diarrhea.”
If your body is trying to clean itself out, there’s usually a good reason for it, but anything described as “violent” is probably not good news. When he finished up in the bathroom, “after what felt like an eternity,” the writer checked the label on the fiber pills he had taken to help him “loosen up” down there, but there was nothing that led him to believe diarrhea was a symptom.
“I finally told my wife and she started laughing at my frantic story,” he continued. “I started getting (annoyed) asking her why she was laughing and she confessed she might have put too much laxative powder in my protein shake.”
He realized his wife was serious – she had spiked him with laxatives, and he wasn’t happy about it.
“I got so angry I started yelling at her and she got defensive saying she was just trying to help me,” he wrote. “Do you think I’m overreacting?”
