My story
by: Anonymous

Man let me just say I'm releved to know I'm not the only person like this. I've been holding my poop in for more than a year now and I HATE it. It messes up my whole life. I think it started this one time I got constipation and from then on I've just been too scared to do it. I had to stay home from school once because of it, and the whole day was just me trying to poop and failing. Since then I was slowly getting better by now its getting worse again. My time between pooping gets longer each time. Right now I'm on two weeks but my previous times went to almost five weeks without going. It's gotten so bad I flush the toilet befor Ei finish peeing just so it looks like I'm in thier longer to people watching. I haven't washed my hands after peeing for months. I even developed the habit of shaking my legs to help me not feel like I need to go, and people keep yelling at me for it and I'm just too scared and embarresed to tell them. I try eating fiber and all but lately its been getting really bad with constipation and I'm a nervous wreck. I'm just scarred of all the pain and I can't control myself anymore. I know this was really long but Thankyou for taking time to read it, it feels good to tell random strangers what I'm going through. If anyone knows anything to help me or the others like me please don't hesitate to help us, we really could use it.

please help

Im 15 and im pretty sure I've had this for over a year. The past few months have been terrible. Its sometimes hurt a little and was big, and one day my butt hurt along with my buttcheecks so I knew it was gonna be huge, then when I went it was so painful I almost cried, and it made my butt bleed. That's how it was the last 3 times. Now I have to go but im scared its gonna hurt, I just need to know what to take so this one will be small and not hurt, im so uncomfortable right now and crying because im scared im gonna die.

when your phobia goes to far!
by: katie

I have had a phobia oh pooping since I was 8 years old, when I got to 14 it really became bad and I refused to go out the house in case I needed to poop. I have had counselling and things got better, sadly I do suffer from anxiety and this kicks off my bad tummy, which then makes my phobia of pooping worse. Anyway I ended up having home school, taking anti diarrhea up to 4 times a day, and developing a fear to leave the house. I am now 25 and still suffer really bad from my phobia, lately things have got worse again. I now don't want to eat, in case I get a bad tummy. I feel weak all the time and my anxiety is through the roof. The doctors say I suffer from ibs, however I wonder if taking all those anti diarrhea damaged my guts in anyway? Everyday is a battle of nerves and panic attacks. I know I need go snap out of it but its hard!

ever since i was born, i have been scared to go. i have no idea why.
the feeling, the smell, the sound. i would rather hold it in and explode.
its so scary and im sick of it.
people say "oh, just go! don't be so silly"... they have no idea what its like...
im glad im not alone anymore :(

I hate pooping
by: Kk

Omg! I cannot believe that I'm not the only one.....I'm 43 yrs old and I've had this my whole life. I have only pooped n public 2 times! And both times I thought I would die of embarrassment. I don't know what the deal is. My husband doesn't get it. He doesn't care if I'm n the room with him while he goes, but then he wants to come n while I go. No way! I can barely go with just myself in there. I know that everyone poops, so why do I get so freaked out by it. If anyone comes near the bathroom while I'm in there I start tensing up. And God forbid if there is no fan to make cover up any smells or farting noises. I am like u guys, I hold it. And then after you've held it a long time u don't feel the urge to go anymore. I have an eating disorder, and I think part of it comes from the pooping. If u don't eat, u don't have to poop. No food. No poop. I hate this. Why can't I just have a "normal" bathroom experience?? Thx for letting me vent and it's nice to know that there r other people like me.

14 and scared
by: Anonymous

I get scared when i feel i have to crap cuz ive clogged and overflowed like 5 toilets. I cant drink enough water in the day and i dont know what has fiber in it to help. But everytime i crap, i have to have my mom flush it. I know its gross, but Im freaked out! My mom says somedays its good and somedays she has to plung it. I just need help, I dont want this to carry with me thru out my life. Especially in college and when I get a house.

Convince yourself
by: Anonymous

I had the same phobia when i was since i was a kid until i was 14, i couldn't take the pain anymore
so i convinced myself to not be afraid and just do it. it was hard at first but after a couple of months i did it, i pooped normally now and it feels great! no more holding, no more pain, no more sweating! that's all you gotta do, just convince yourself to NOT be afraid that it will hurt and relax!

I thought I was the only one with this odd fear! Idk what started it, but it is getting worse and worse with every day I don't "go" .. I even have a hemmroid due to the fact that when I actually do go, (after 3, 4, sometimes even more days) I strain to let it out, and its so hard it feels like I've eaten broken glass. Ugh! I don't know what started this fear, and I don't know what will end it!

If anyone has a cure, please post it on here!

Thank God I'm Not Alone!

I am almost 18 years old and I've always been afraid to go. When I was little my parents put me on laxatives, but as soon as they were convinced I didn't need them, I went right back to holding it in. As I got older, I actually started being grateful for my menstrual cramps because they would make me go and I didn't need to convince myself! it gets so bad that I start peeing in the shower so I don't have to sit on the toilet... I just can't stand anything about it! the feeling, the pain, the smell, the clogging toilet, Anything!

....i have come to reaise that it is the sound of the plop i dont well as the undignified way it leaves...and childhood floters in the swimming pool... sounds weird but its true !!!!

olive oil came into the picture, came to me one day sounded great, canola oil you can eat too, the one i have is pure dunno if it needs to be pure. im in a problem now due to the times of mass strain, im plump n not tall green brown weathered stone and im guessing its a hemmroid of sort, its getting worse too, too late to have know this to stretch it out the span of my life the wall that many times held back the dynamite i didnt know was comming. feels like im pooping broken glass sometimes. if your gonna give olive oil to animals putting it on a spoon first not direct from bottle may be the way, too much came out and one was afraid to eat it. honey sounds really healthy additioning from the bible then the internet, i thought god was feeding this girl just honey and oil, found out fine flour was in their too with that sentence <:( the red sea discoveries with the chariots chasing moses is on the internet, chariot wheels on the sea-bed yay

Wow, I thought I was the only one - I wouldn't say I'm afraid of pooping but it doesn't come out and I feel someone is always watching so I get really uncomfy and can't force it out, I've started squeezing the tissue role and closing my eyes now, works on occasion!

Fear of Pooping
by: Penna.

Me too...

What the heck is this about ? I've developed this fear of pooping. I'm on medication that constipates me. I take a stool softener and senna, a vegetable based laxative daily. Everytime I sit on the toilet, my butt tighens up...I try to relax and can only poop a little bit two or three times a day. I think I need fiber. What do you think ?

Phobia of pooping is making me crazy ! Maybe because I am a bit coo coo. Oh to have a good 'ole poop. Damn Medication...
