i was so young when this happen, but i still have fears today. when i went to school, i used to hold myself so bad because i could not pee in public. i was afraid to pee in toilet, because i didn't want to make any noise. but when i did pee my pants the teacher would make me stand in the corner facing the other children. they would laugh at me. i was so scared. when i got home my mother asked me what did i do in my pants. i told her i peed myself. so she said i was going to sit in the pen with wet pants and stay there till morning, and go back to school with the same wet pants. i said i had to poo, and she said when your in the pen you can poop in your pants, the ones you wet. she said as long as i wet and poop my pants i will not ever get my pants changed. so i sat in the pen every night till i smarted up. the pen was a big as a rabbit cage,with bars on it. my brother said when he was young he peed his pants and he was in the pen for two days. he said he learned his lesson.

why i hate homework

normally when i get home from school i go straight to the bathroom but a few months ago i stayed an hour after school to work on homework and as i was walking home i had to poo and i was walking thru a cornfield to my house and had to poo and i was almost home and i had tripped on a corn stalk and full out crapped myself it was hard and my underwear was tight kind of so there was a basically a log of poop in my panties half of the walk home and i didn't want to take it out because there is housing development near the field and i didn't want to get seen like that.

School toilets embarraseing

I had diarrhea one time but my parents still made me go to school. During 3rd period I really needed to poop but my teacher wouldnt let me but i really needed to so I went anyway. I ran to the toilets and locked myself in a stall but before I could even pull my pants down I had already started pooping. It went everywhere - all down my legs, on my hands and all over the floor and wall. But then a girl from my class walked in (the teacher sent her to check on me) and she started laughing and by lunch the whole school knew and its been a year and people still tease me about it );

Peed myself in 3th grade

I've peed my pants in 3th grade in from of all the classmates because I couldn't hold it anymore. And the fact I had (and still have) a social phobia, made this whole situation so traumatic to me... that I can't forget it till' today. and I'm 21. That is also the reason why I couldn't even ask the teacher to use the bathroom... and ended up humiliating myself this way. I know you may judge me, but that's only because you don't go through this kind of phobia. This is kinda ironic though, being the joke of the class while you have social anxiety... I will never forget their laughs and my shock while I saw the puddle under my desk and realized I just peed myself. It just came out uncontrollably. I didn't even know it's possible because I never peed myself before this time, I've always had self-control even as a child...I just really couldn't hold it anymore....it was so shocking when it came out next thing I remember is I only cried my eyes out and wanted to disappear.

Bladder control

This happened when I was in kindergarten. I was really shy back then and never asked to go to the bathroom even tho the bathroom was in my classroom. Every time it was nap time I would pee myself cause I couldn't hold it in. My teachers would always know to send me home after nap time even tho I never really napped but just pretended too, cause they know I would pee at nap times. When I think about it now I wonder what my teachers thought.

A bad meal >.

So I was coming from my cousin's birthday and I had eaten a lot and also drank a lot. Suddenly, while I was watching TV, I felt pain in my stomach. I ignored it. Soon I felt a big urge to throw up so I ran to the bathroom. While I was running downstairs I threw up only a little on the stairs. Thank God i made it to the bathroom. I only threw up 2 times then I started eating again, nothing hurt me after. At least I didnt get embarrassed coz i didnt pee or poo my pants, only maybe when i was a newborn in diapers. Plus I live right now in an orphanage and i didnt have a family or someone to see me, coz it was 11:00PM and at that time we all had to go sleep.

Scared of Automatic Toilets

I'm a girl. When I was in kindergarten we were on a field trip and my teacher's assistant asked if anyone needed to go potty. I really needed to go! As I locked the stall I turned around and noticed that the toilet flushed automatically. Idk what it was, but something about those toilets scared the crap outta me. So anyways, I refused to use the bathroom after that, and just pretended that I went. About an hour and a half later I REALLY needed to go so I asked and she said no you already went. So I just stood there watching people play with water and I noticed that the ground was all wet and stuff, so I figured, hey why not and i pissed myself in the puddle and about half an hour later the teacher asked if I still needed to go. I was scared to tell her I peed myself so I said no Ms. Watt took me. Then just before we left we were sitting against a wall and some girl said " you smell weird!" And when I got home I told my mom what had happened and she made me wear diapers for 2 years!

Kindergarten piss

I was about 5 years old when did this, so in kindergarten I really needed to pee, but I was too shy to raise my hand .most of the days I could hold it , but that day I couldn't . it was art time and there was 10 minutes left of class so I thought I would just wait till the end of class, but I underestimated how much I had to pee. 5 mins till class was over , the warm yellow pee just came gushing out. I felt relief, but then shock. most embarrassing part was when my teacher told my dad. luckily nobody noticed somehow. I am now 8 years old, and I am a girl.

My Nights In Pull-ups

I'm a bed wetter so I have to wear pull-ups. I like the feeling of them and that I don't have to get up to pee. I have never pooped in my pull-ups before though. One night I stayed up late to watch a movie. During the movie I really had to poop. I dicided to go in my pull-ups so I did. I felt a warm liquid as I pooped and thought I peed so after I just fell asleep. When I woke up it smelt horrible in the room and I wondered what it was. There was a huge brown spot on my bed and it turns out I had diarreah.

IBS is ruining my life

I've had stomach broblems for 4 years now and nothing we have done has helped. The doctor finally diagnosed me with Ibs, but that didn't seem to HELP me. Anyways, this morning I was in the bathroom for 2 hours with really bad bowel movements that were messy and annoying ( this happens almost every morning). I ended up having a sandwhich for lunch at 1:30. I felt ok after, only pooping pellets an hour later. My stomach started feeling nauseous and gargling. When I tried to go, only mucus came out. I decided to ignore it and later that night, I decided to go on a few errands. As soon as I got to the parking lot I felt a hot sensation in my stomach and I knew I was in trouble. There was no way for me to stop it, I soiled my pants and was forced to drive home right away in my own feces. Worst experience of my life.
