I’ve had feacal incontinence and constipation all my life, it has completely ruined everything for me, I avoid going out with friends for long periods of times, sleepovers, swimming etc
I’ve always felt weird and a freak for this, but I know I can’t help it, I just want to not have this anymore. I know it will affect all my future relationships so I’m scared to get in one
I don’t know anyone else like me, only the family I live with knows about it of course, I just want to be able to live a normal life like everyone else
I haven’t been to the doctors in years because it’s embarrassing and my mum says they’re useless anyway
I’m currently really sick and in a lot of pain, feels like anything I eat just makes it worse, so I go days without eating much
For more information: I’m very thin, but I get bloated a lot, I struggle with mental health issues too which makes things worse maybe, I also have to wear diapers at night and pads during the day
Any advice or similar experiences will help, I feel completely alone and I’m scared I’ll be forever unhappy because of this problem
It is really important to go to a Doctor to rule out any serious underlying cause, although this sounds embarrassing. They hear about this on a regular basis so incontinence is nothing new to them.
Do you eat a lot of fiber? Fiber could help in softening the stools and reducing pain.
How much water do you drink?
