The little gremlin in my bladder . . .
Just wondering if anybody else has one, lol. When I'm flaring, I tell my hubby it feels like my gremlin is awake and poking me with a pointy stick. We can talk about my little gremlin in public and just crack each other up (gets us some funny looks ).

I say I have little aliens in my bladder . It usually gets some strange looks and some chuckles.

I grew up in a household where we talked about the little man in the garage door opener, and so on, for any technology that my mother didn't understand how it worked. I like the idea of a little gremlin in the bladder. I'll just blame my problems on his poor behavior.IC & fibromyalgia since ~'77. Osteoarthritis since ~'88.

LOL! Glad to know it's not just me . It makes everything easier when you make a joke out of it, and I know my hubby takes hearing "My gremlin is angry" better than "Oooohhhh, my stomach hurts."
