First impressions

I've recently started dating this guy, I was invited to stay the night, his mother made some chicken curry dish. Afterwards I started feeling really nauseous. I was to be sleeping downstairs, but the toilet down there is where his cat sleeps, so I wasn't allowed to use it. The only other toilet was upstairs, right next to his parents bedroom, and his bedroom. After my boyfriend had gone back upstairs to his bed I NEEDED to go. SO BADLY. I knew I wasn't going to make it upstairs in time. I desperately broke into the downstairs toilet but just as I opened the door, poo came out uncontrollably. Full on diarrhea. My pants were wrecked and I was stuck in this bloody bathroom with this cat, poo everywhere, and unable to make a sound otherwise I would wake him and his parents. I cleaned up as best as I could in the dark, wrapped my soiled pants in a shirt and shoved them to the bottom of my bag. I just hope he didn't smell it the next day, and that I didn't leave any poo behind. So humiliating.

A Christmas Warning

When I was 17, my family and I drove to New Orleans during Thanksgiving vacation. My parents had packed a large bag of gingerbread cookies to snack on for the long trip. I ate most of the bag during the 8 hours, and then ate a large meal once we made it to NOLA. While waiting for a jazzband performance, I became very uncomfortable and knew I needed to poop. I told my parents and my mom finally agreed to walk back to the hotel with me. I raced backed, stopping every few blocks when I felt like I couldn't hold it any longer. I finally made it to the hotel, but before I could enter the door, I began to poop all over myself. I entered the hotel and had to share a elevator with several people. Shit was running down my legs. After I got myself cleaned up, we threw away my pants and underwear. The lobby smelled for the rest of our trip. I think some poop fell onto the floor.

I was at the beach and I was on my period, I was 12 and I was already wearing tampons. It was raining hard and I was wearing booty shorts. My tampon slipped out of my pants and fell on the ground. It was so embarrassing as there were a couple of people at the beach.

Pooping and peeing constantly

I am in sixth grade and I still wet the bed every night for the past 7 years not including when I was a baby. The most embarrassing part is that I poo every other night so I have to wear diapers and I have to get changed by the nurse at school. It's soooooooooo SOOOOOOOOO EMBARRASSING !!!!!

Don't Tease Siblings

I had a similar experience to the one Wendy had. I am the oldest of 5 kids. Over the years I have seen some of my younger siblings pee their pants, and one of them pooped their pants at school. I don't know why, but I could never understand how that could happen. I had no sympathy for them, and I use to tease them about their accidents. But last year when all five of us kids were walking home from school I had to go really bad. I didn't tell the others I had to go, but I was desperate. And then the unbelievable happened. I, Tiana, the older mature one who always teased the others about their accidents, I started to go in my pants. As we walked I completely filled my pants with a huge number two. I didn't tell anyone, I just kept walking. The others smelt it and blamed it on my youngest sister Tracy, who is 10. I too blamed Tracy, who then started to cry and claim that it wasn't her. When we got home I got cleaned up and nobody ever knew it was me. But I don't tease my siblings anymore.

Stand Still Crossed Legs

I don't know about anyone else, but ever since I was a little girl, whenever I have to go number two really bad I have to stand still and cross my legs until the urge subsides. I'm serious. I'm 19 years old now, and when I have to go bad, if I don't stand still and cross my legs until it subsides, I will have an accident. So a few weeks ago I was with some friends at a mall, and I had to go poo really bad. So as I walked to the bathroom with my friends, I had to keep stopping and crossing my legs. My friends though it was hilarious. We would start walking again, and then I would stop again and cross my legs. Then we would start walking again. It took a long time, but we finally got to the bathroom and all the stalls were occupied. So we started walking to another bathroom, but then I got a very severe urge and it was time to stop walking, but I saw a guy that I know and I didn't want him to see me standing with crossed legs. So I kept walking and I shit my pants. My friends laughed.

I have many times lost control and did in my pants. It is so embarrassing. I had this problem when I was 12 when I went to a wedding and I had a feeling but I didn't go as I thought it is nothing. Then I had music class, I felt I needed to go but I was unable as we had to sing and everyone got to know I did it after the class was over. I am getting this problem repeatedly but I tried to do it b4 I go anyway out of the house for precaution. Its not easy because people don't understand and just laugh at you. No one knows that what you feel with this.

I wish to cry

I am 14. I'm having a habit of eating junk in a great amount, so that's why my hips keep farting and i feel embarrassed. one day, I needed to go toilet urgently, at that time I was in classroom. And I didn't ask my teacher to allow me to go to toilet because she was a rude teacher so I thought that she will not allow me. Bell was going to ring in 10 minutes ,so I kept waiting but my pressure of shit was out of control and i did that in my pants. I felt so embarrassed that I can't describe. Everyone was seeing me. Some were laughing, some were saying yak, at that time I just wished to cry but I didn't.

I'm Incontinent

I had an accident in my pants in front of everyone in a graduate level law class - I am still ashamed, but feel safer now that I wear protection - and I keep in mind that my girlfriend loves me anyway :)

In The Car

I'm 14 and my younger brother is 13. One time when he was 10 or 11 he pooped his pants, and I never let him forget it. I used to tease him about it, and when ever we got in an argument I would call him poopy pants, and he would get really quiet. I told all his friends that he pooped his pants and my mother grounded me for it. But last summer when our family was driving up to the cottage, a 7 hour drive, I had to got poo very very bad. I told my parents, but my father kept driving. I held it as long as I could, and then I started pooping in my pants. At first my family thought I just passed gas, but I ended up doing all my business in my pants and the whole car stunk bad. When my little brother realized what I did, he started laughing and calling me poopy pants. My dad yelled at me, and my mom yelled at my dad for yelling at me. I just sat there in my poopy pants for about 20 minutes before we found somewhere to stop. I was so embarrassed.

School Teacher

My name is Lisa, and I'm a 28 year old school teacher. Last year when I was on a school trip with the grade 7 class that I teach, I had to go number two really bad on the bus ride home. I was wearing white pants and thong underwear. A few of my students were sitting with me talking to me, but I was getting more and more desperate. Finally I couldn't stand it any longer, so I got up and told the bus driver that I had to go really bad. I could feel my face was red as I spoke to him. He would try find a stop as soon as he could. But as I was speaking to him I started to do some of it in my pants. I was shaking I was so scared. The bus driver could see by the look on my face that I was desperate, and he asked me if I was ok. I just stood there and didn't say anything back. He asked me again if I was ok, and then I completely filled my pants. I felt it all go into my white pants. I was mortified. The only way I could hide it was sit back down in my seat. Everyone knew what I did. I was humiliated.

I'm feeling sick...

One morning I ate a hard boiled egg but it wasn't cooked right so I got food poisoning. I didn't know until I decided to go over to hang out with my neighbors (I was 10) We were in their backyard when I started not feeling well, so I threw up in their yard waste bin in the sideyard cuz I couldn't make it home. Then I realized I was pooping while I was throwing up!! It felt horrible, especially since the walk home was 4 houses away. The poop ran down my leg and my parents wouldn't let me go inside so I had to rinse my self off with a hose... OUT FRONT!!!

School Accident

I was 14 and had been having tummy problems but this day in class the rumblings got worse and worse and eventually I asked to be excused so I could go to the toilet. Unfortunately the toilets were a long way from the classroom and by the time I got there it was starting to come out in my underwear. The toilet stalls didn't have doors due to vandalism but I didn't care, just dropped my pants and went on the toilet. The teacher had been concerned about me because I had apparently been white-faced and looked ill so he sent another classmate to see if I was ok. It was embarrassing having him see my soiled underwear and me trying to clean up but he was very sympathetic and didn't tell anyone else in the class.
