So much poop

My family was going on a trip to Texas and we were sitting in the gate at the airport and I had been suffering from 3 weeks constipation (which no one knew about) and I had to go to the bathroom and my stomach hurt really bad so I ran into the bathroom and right as I stepped into the stall I suddenly felt total relief and then I suddenly realized what was happening so I started yanking off my jeans but the buckle was stuck and suddenly 3 weeks worth of diarrhea came pouring out and started filling my pants and right as I got them unbuckled my mom started banging on the door shouting "hurry up we are about to board the plane!!!" and I shoved my pants back on with all of the poop spilling out and the diarrhea kept coming and i was stuck with it for the rest of the 2 week long trip and long after we got back home and 1 week after we got back I got stomach flu and threw up constantly. (worst month ever)

So much poop

Ok do I just started dating this really cute guy and so we were going on a trip to France together and we were walking around in the mall and I had to go #2 really bad but I can't speak French so I couldn't figure out which bathroom was girls so I just ran into one of them and as I walked in I realized I t was the boys room and I was so embarrassed that I pooped my pants and diarrhea started running down my legs and I was covered in it and it wouldn't stop coming out and I was so terrified I puked.

I was on an airplane by myself flying to Minnesota and I was sitting next to two really cute guys and then my stomach started hurting and I could feel the diarrhea coming and then I threw up twice on one of the guys legs and then I got diarrhea and the bathroom was occupied and I had to stand in line for 30 min. while pooping all over myself and then I finally got in the bathroom and they were out of toilet paper and I had diarrhea for the rest of the trip.

Couldn't Stand Up!!

So I was in class, and my teacher told everyone to stand up. Not a problem right? I was trying to hold in my pee and I had to go so bad that I couldn't walk to the bathroom. So like an idiot, I sat there, pretending to tie my shoe, thinking it would work. Suddenly the teacher stops talking. I don't pay much attention and keep fiddling with my shoe. Then she calls my name and I freeze. Everyone's eyes are on my, and I slowly stand up. I'm trying my best to not pee in my pants, so my butt is sticking out. To make it even worse, my crush is staring at me like I'm an idiot...well guess I won't be talking to him again :(

Drunken antics

I don't usually get drunk but last weekend I decided to get drunk. I had way too much vodka at my boyfriends best friends house, I was the only girl. I needed to go to the toilet and when I stood up all the drink hit me and I couldn't walk. So my BOYFRIEND took me to the toilet where I ended up being sick for 4 hours. I couldn't physically control my body, I ended up having a number 2 on the toilet and it do happened I had diarrhea. I ended up getting it on the toilet roll but not realizing. When I woke up everyone was gone and I continued to be sick. I got a taxi home to find out my boyfriend was annoyed at me. I told him to tell me what happened and he did. Apparently his best friend's little sister who is my age (15) had to clean up the bathroom in the morning, I feel so embarrassed. Idk what to do.

What a mistake to make

A little while ago I had a most embarrassing problem: I had suffered two weeks' constipation. I had pain and discomfort and hardly knew what I might do. So I decided to take some laxative medicine and got my brother to go to a local chemist. Unfortunately he had a rather unpleasant sense of humour and decided (with the help of a computer) to change the directions on the box. He changed the directions from 'take one a day' to 'take ten a day'. I duly took ten of these tablets and the next morning did the same again. Less than an hour later (when running for a bus) there was an horrendous explosion from below and I found two weeks' diarrhoea running down the gutter. Everyone in the street was looking. I almost imploded.

I thought i was there

Im a 16 yr old As i sat in class i was starting to feel a little weird. I thought to myself well maybe it isnt diarrhea. Well in response to that it was. I tryed to hold it in until class ended But i just couldnt so i walked out and called my father who then took about 5 min to get there. While all this was happening i had the urge to use the bathroom So bad. I got home in 10 min still holding it. I say to my dad i forgot my keys but my mom should be in there. I go and knock and call her many times and im here waiting until BLAM. It just happens. I thought i was gonna make it but my mother was not there and no toilets were nearby. :(

always bring your phone!

I am 12 and I was shopping with my best friend but on the bus back I really needed the toilet. When I got home me and my friend went on Facebook, I ignored the fact that I needed the toilet then went to the next village too call for our friend. Eventually we both needed the toilet and no one was playing out. We decided to wait in my mums friends garden while she was out, we thought she wouldn't be long. It ended up being the worst day of my life. It started hailing and my friend kept making me laugh and eventually I wet myself, it was all down the back of my legs and I felt like crying but I was really embarrassed!!! It then started to hail and I decided to sit in a huge pile of mud to make it look like I slipped over. But it didn't work! Just before my friends mum was due to pick us up I needed the toilet again and ended up wetting myself!!!! She had to take me home and I stunk, I quickly ran upstairs when I got home and had a shower and didn't come down for the rest of the night!!

wet pants :(

I was 12 yearz old, walking home from school with my friend. She's the most popular girl in my year group, and I mean the MOST popular. So I was absolutely DESPERATE for a pee & had been all day but wasn't comfortable going to the school toilets. So I actually mentioned to her I needed to go, & then she started the old 'pssssssssss-psssssssss' joke, obviously believing I didn't need it that badly (I really, really did) and just as we reached her house (I planned to walk past and leave her at this point) I flooded! It was horrible! I stood there, helpless, wetting myself - she stood there just staring in disbelief of what just happened! She was very supportive, though, offering to let me in her home to clean up, but she was so shocked, as was I! I walked home crying my eyes out quietly, I'll never forget the most humiliating time of my entire life. I rang her later that day saying I'd been throwing up & having stomach cramp, so she'd get the impression it was a períod...maybe :(

Score 1 for young love!

so I'm 12. I was in school last week day and it was recess. Me and my boyfriend were together for the first time. Soon, I had to pee, but I didn't want my boyfriend to laugh or tease me, so I held it. It was 30 minutes until recess was over. about to minutes later, I finally had to let go. As soon as I did, I started to cry. I expected my boyfriend to just stand and stare, but he wasted no time in wrapping his sweatshirt around my waist. He then ran me to the girls bathroom (I was still crying). He took me into the GIRLS bathroom, and into a stall, where he stripped off my wet pants and underwear. Yes, he could see my va-j-j. He then ran to get emergency pants and underwear from the nurse. He put them on me and then walked me back outside where recess was just ending. He never told anyone. Score 1 for young love!

school (aged 9)

I had just started 3rd lesson on thursday geography in bottem set when I was about to miss the toilet. I told mrs greenfield but she ignored me. Halfway through the lesson I wet myself(lucky it was a class of 8 not including me and most in special ed) I told the teacher and she lead me to the nurse. I being myself asked her to tell the class if they asked that I had an open wound that needed re-bandaging up and she said she would. The nurse put me in a diaper and rubber pants she found and got me new trousers. At last lesson I was pulled out to do something for a company. They said they were called superundies. I was told to put on 2 training pants they made for a promotion video a XL and XXL pant. During the XXL I peed through it making it leak and I wasn't supposed to. Worst day ever. And 10yrs ago on 12th of april 2013
