I had a doctor once tell me when I was concerned about my stomach that I was "too aware of my bodily functions." Duh! When my stomach is gurgling all the time and I'm crapping up a storm....OF COURSE I'm going to be aware of it!

"What do you want me to do about it?"

"Three times the fiber, three times the exercise!"

"You're probably depressed."
