Hi and welcome. Isn't this forum fantastic? I found it last spring and have read it religiously on a daily basis since. As far as the SWF, you would not want to take it right before going to work. You WILL need to have close access to a bathroom over the next hour or two. I know some people set their alarm an hour early, get up and take the SWF, and then go back to bed till it's time to get up. That way, they can visit the toilet while getting ready and have it out of their system by the time they leave for work. Could that maybe work for you? The SWFs do a great job of moving the toxins a long, but it is a little tricky working them in. Good luck and congratulations on this new "chapter" in your life :).
