Friday fun – Diarrhoea mnemonics

Diarrhoea is such a hard word to spell, and even though I write a blog about Crohn’s Disease I still struggle with spelling the crazy word! Fortunately there are some mnemonics around to help you remember:

  • Diarrhoea Is A Really Rather Humiliating Occurrence, Especially Annoying!
  • Dash In A Real Rush, Hurry Or Else Accident!
  • Dining In A Rough Restaurant: Hurry, Otherwise Expect Accidents!
  • Diarrhoea Is A Really Runny Heap Of Endless Amounts
  • (Feel like I’m) Dying In A Rich Restaurant Having Over Eaten Again
  • Down in Africa Red Riding Hood Only Eats Apples (courtesy of @Babir1981)

In the US, the ‘o’ is omitted so you need to remove the ‘o’ words….
