The Pooping So Far:

poop accident location

my favorite poop place so far

I’ve been in remission for almost a year… very scary to thing that is true. Diagnosed in the fall of 2007, just turned 16, it was sure an adventure. I have had accidents almost everywhere, many times. In my car countless times, in my friends’ cars, outside of my work, in changing rooms of department stores, in the Depends I had on during work, in school before finals, in the doctor’s office. Man, I am working on a book, titled, “S**t Happens” more or less going through some of the funniest poop stories. No one can relate to any of this, so I am going to give this web site a whirl.

My Medications:

Prednisone always works the best for me, but I get cranky, fat, and manic. Right now, I am rocking out the Asacol, 6-MP, and a gluten-free diet (due to Celiac, not quite choice)

    Boy, I can relate to that. I think a compilation book of different peoples’ stories would be good. I’ve pulled over and used port-o-johns at construction sites before.

    I’m so glad I can look back and laugh at the times and places I’ve pooped myself!

    I can relate, as well. Most of mine, thankfully, have been near misses. But, I’m constantly pretending I don’t recognize someone who is trying to stop me to talk to me in the hall, as I make a mad sprint for any available bathroom. Then there was the time I came home from a colonoscopy and noticed a nasty stain, so had to call the friend who drove me and say, “Um, do I need to have your seat detailed by any chance?” I tried to sound all casual about it, like everyone has to ask their friends things like that on a regular basis. I won’t hold friends’ babies because I seem to have a “drop whatever is in your hands and flee” auto-response to the sudden urge. I’ve shouted at an elderly couple that was meandering around and blocking the entire hallway, to please, for the love of all that is holy, get out of my way so that I could reach the bathroom. I’ve actually found myself feeling ridiculously happy, in a teary kind of way, that I made it to my OWN car before I soiled myself and not in front of 50,000 people at the state fair.

    I’m really happy to have kept my sense of humor through all this. My Mom and I are constantly making horribly inappropriate jokes that crack me up. I feel the drug companies hate us, by the way. We have drugs named Proctofoam and Asacol. Really? Is that necessary? I remember standing in line next to a gorgeous, gorgeous man and the tech screaming, “Do you need assistance with using PROCTOFOAM, Ma’am?” Um…thanks, got that one covered!

    haha i absolutely love this, the amount of times i have had to nearly kill myself running across a road to get to a place with a toilet, the times when i have had to beg a shopkeeper to let me use their staff toilets and then do the walk of shame coming out of their toilet 20 minutes later when they clearly know u have just taken a shit in their toilets! The amount of times i have soiled myself in the car, at the shops where you drop everything and just run to the toilet, i have had security give me weird looks because i had walked past them a million times to use the toilet so they musta thought i was stealing stuff!! Oh god and on the aeroplane when they absolutely insist you put your seatbelts on, i was in the toilet at the time and i did not want to go back to my seat so i refused to open the door and i had the flight attendant banging on the door to make me come out!
    I hope your book goes well for u! I would love to chat to you, as i am 20 years old and i love the way you cope with this horrendous disease! Give me an email on nandap12@hotmail.com sometime!
