Ok, I’m not having constipation but the polar opposite at this time. I don’t weigh enough to have diarrhea so badly that I can’t control it. Also, I can’t leave the house if I have to fear having an accident. We missed Easter festivities due to pants pooping, on my part and not the part of my youngsters. Gross, I know – I really know. I was diagnosed about 20 years ago with IBS -irritable BOWEL! – no thanks. I blew that one right off (no pun intended). No successful, cute, happy, outgoing young person (of dating age) wants any sort of bowel issue – believe you me! When it would flare, over the years, I would discreetly search the internet for suggestions on how to improve the issues at hand via diet, etc. It wasn’t something that I would have considered to be anything more than an inconvenience nor was it anything that I wanted to have in the first place – meaning I would have avoided giving it any consideration at all if remotely possible.
I was more-or-less ‘fine’ 6 or 8 years ago, well maybe 10.
Fast forward to now: I’m trapped on the potty often and it certainly affects my abilities (not that I have many abilities anyway). I sure don’t need this problem since I’m ‘bogged down’ beyond comprehension. Now, a step further into having to worry if/when I’m going to poop my pants?! This has started over the past few months and has not been everyday (except the last few). It’s random too. I think I am in so much pain, nausea, suffocating exhaustion all day everyday that I can’t even tell if I am sick much less in some additional pain or having more problems. If I was at 10% of my normal function, this problem has got to cut that number in half. You’ve gotta be kidding! Ugh, what a life?!
Sorry for the ‘gore’. I am bloated also as well as having a lot of cramping. While you mentioned constipation as a primary, you’d also referenced diarrhea. Any suggestions for my current issue at hand? Please help me if you can. I’ve lost enough already and I don’t need to add this problem to my ‘stock pile’. I just want it to go away.
