Thought it might be a fluke but, day 5 and still NORMAL!!! The Belly Rub of Happiness!! Yeah!!
If you're older - and, possibly, more likely female than male - you may experience difficulty "holding your water". I know it was getting harder and harder for ME but, then I started rebounding and it was easier - to HOLD it - BUT - and this is a HUGE but! I suspect it's not a matter of not being able to HOLD it.
For the past few days, I've been rubbing castor oil on my belly. I haven't done a castor oil PACK, just rubbing it on my belly. About twice a day for the past few days and something interesting has happened that has made me rethink the whole "hard to hold it" thing.
I don't think it's hard to hold. I think what's happening is something like a sudden flooding of the bladder. Why? Because, sure, I can still hold it BUT, TODAY, there's no sudden URGENCY.
Initially, I thought it was something else - as in, I didn't realize it was just a normal signal to go pee as it's been so long but, that's what it is. A NORMAL sensation of having to pee. No urgency which I suspect means no sudden flood of fluid dropped on the bladder.
I have no idea what is being "fixed" or perhaps the urgency will return, I don't know, but I don't think that's going to happen. I haven't seen any references to this with castor oil. Nor, in fact, ANY remedy so - give it a try!
Be advised that castor oil will clean you out and CAN clean you out even just by rubbing it on the belly so, either only use a little or do it on a day you don't have to leave the house until you're flushed out. It's not as bad as the result of having to choke down a big ol' "grandma made me do it" spoon full of castor oil, orally - and if you're like me and always experimenting with cleanses and what not it probably won't happen - but there are plenty of herx stories about the "clearing out" of the bowels and other housekeeping effects.
