  • Don't Be Ashamed Of Your Condition

    You should never be ashamed of having a bowel condition. I have had many "mishaps" and I am not ashamed of any of them.

Read my article about some of my mishaps that I posted for the world to see. https://dalegopinions.com/2017/12/09/colon-condition-one-also/
