I can still remember that horrible day. For a moment I thought that it was actually going to be a good day. That test that we where going to have, GONE! The teacher had been really nice and she said that we were going to have it tomorrow. Good, because I had not studied the night before. But anyways, we needed to go to gym and I really had to do #1. I told our coach, but she was suspicious since some kids had put some sort of type of graffiti on the bathrooms. So then I had to actually cry to go. At the end she let me go, but on the way there it was sudden Niagara Falls and instead I had to rush to the nurse instead. I got into a lot of trouble and at the end I was so embarrassed.My poor friend had to stick by me when people laughed at me in the hallways. Good friend she was. Now that we look back at that day, it was kind off funny. Trust me,it can be embarrassing, but at the end you will also be laughing at yourself a few years later when you are at college with your dormmates. So people, just let time pass.

Accident in the car

Well I remember when I was 16 I had to go to the bathroom super bad. We were driving out in Alaska and me, my mom and my dad were in the middle of nowhere. I told my parents "I have to use the bathroom really bad it's not even funny." they told me "were not stopping Brittany until we need gasoline" My parents are really strict. They would wanna keep on driving so we could get to Alaska fast. An hour later I feel as if it's an emergency. I tell them "I need to go right now. I'm about to go" I even cried. They still said for me to hold it. But they probably knew it was an emergency for me. 15 minutes later my mom suddenly said " hey Brittany there's a gas station just 5 miles away. You can go to the bathroom then. Think you can hold it?" "I'll try" I said. I tried everything I could. I was starting to get sweaty. 2 miles left and it got a lot worse. I started crying. Tears were falling cuz I was about go. Half a mile away and I don't make it. I pooped my pants. :(

One Big Load

Ok, so all day I had held my poop in, but the thing was I had been holding it in for about 5-6 days before. So then the feeling went away and I had decided to go to the grocery store to grab some chips and pop with my friends for a little slumber party were having. Then 10 minutes of being in the store, my stomach started growling and hurting, I then realized that I had to poop really really but before I had a chance to go to the washroom my body decided it wanted to go then and now so I was just standing there completely filling my pants with poop, I swear it was one after another and I could not control it at all. I tried and tried but there was nothing I could do. After 2 minutes of standing there pooping my pants it really started to smell bad (can you imagine a weeks worth of poop?) Then I told my friends I was hot so I had took my sweater off to wrap it around my waist. It was so embarrassing :( I knew it was up my back, stomach, and thighs but I had to wait till I got home to clean up.

Poop and Pee

I was in the 6th grade, and I had to go poo really badly. The bathroom only had one stall working and there was a long line, and the poo and pee just came running out. It was gross. I told my teacher privately, and she sent me to the nurse. She told me to wear a diaper everyday, and just go in my pants. Then, she would change me. When I got my first period, she was the one to change me it was soooo embarrassing!

School trip accident!

So one day when I was 12 my whole class went on a school trip to this really nice beach that was like 4 hours away. Like 40 mins into the bus ride I really had pee, it was soo bad and I told my friend and she said just hold it until we get there. So I did only to find that there weren't any toilets!! We were there for almost 2 hours and I had to sit still with my legs crossed for like the whole time! Then when it was finally time to go we all had to walk the long way back through the woods to get to the bus!! I was completely bursting and then my friend tickled me and I completely peed my self and it was running down my legs!!! It was soooo embarrassing and I had to sit in pee covered pants for the 4 hour ride home, the whole bus stank and my friend couldn't stop laughing!!! I laugh about it now but at the time I actually died :D

Recess Accident

One time at recess I was wearing skin-tight sweatpants and talking to my friends. We were talking about some guy I liked when I had to go number two real bad. I crossed my legs and then something happened. They started thinking he liked me. I couldn't leave so I had to do something desperate. I tried not to make it obvious, so I opened my legs a little and crouched and pooped. The problem was it kept on coming out. After 45 seconds I stopped and everyone could smell it but didn't say anything. So we are all walking around and it feels so awkward and my pants are sagging down. Then the bell rings and we go inside. I sit down and then have a horrible feeling as I know now my pants were COMPLETELY filled with poop. The room smelled and I was called up to the principals office. Now I have to wear diapers (really thick ones) Molicare Super Plus. Now my pants and sweatpants bulge out and it is obvious I am wearing one. I used to be popular and now I'm wearing diapers 24/7.

Summer Far From Home

I was in the 7th grade, and I took a trip back to my hometown. Miles from my home in the US, I was living with family that I only spent 4 of my childhood years with, so of course I was afraid of going #2 in their bathrooms as my mother always taunted me about how bad it smelled. I seriously thought that I could hold it in for a month, as i usually don't poop everyday. Sadly, one morning as I was sending an e-mail, I really needed to go poop. I ignored it and held it in as best as I could until later in the day when I discovered I had pooped my pants when I was going #1 at a restaurant. My grandmother, mother, dad, and all my other relatives were waiting for me outside. Luckily, I had a pad on which had caught most of it, but some of it was still there and my pants smelled for the rest of day because I couldn't go home yet because my cousins were going to take me to an arcade. I didn't have the guts to tell my mother because of how embarrassing it was to poop my pants. Worse day ever.

Trip to Jamica

One time I was going to Jamica with my boyfriend. I was wearing a yellow bikini and enjoying my time thre. They then took us to a private island where there were no bathrooms. We were to stay there for four hours plus and hours boat ride back and forth. So 30 minutes into the ride, with 50 people on a double decker boat I get an urge to poop. I kept holding it but it was hard to do so. After two hours, I was cringing. Then, I couldn't hold it anymore. I started pooping, and I could feel my bikini expanding. I must have done two pounds in there. I didn't know what to do, so I ran to the bathroom and put on some random person's sweatpants. My boyfriend asked why I put them on, but I wouldn't tell him. It felt weird (as you can imagine) walking with a bathing suit load of poop. Then, as we went back, I sat down and there was a huge squish! My boyfriend asked what happened and I said nothing. The feeling was uncomfortable. I felt like I sat in a pie. It passed after 5 minutes.

chronic diarrhea accidents

When I was 35 years old I was having brunch with my male friend at a restaurant. I had a slight feeling that I had to go so I stood up to walk to the restroom. As I walked I began to go. By the time I reached the restroom I had explosive diarrhea all over the bathroom and my clothes. Since that day I have had frequent accidents in many stores and restaurants. I often soil my self and my bathroom at home. I ruin several pairs of underwear a day. It is getting worse all the time. I never have a well formed stool.

School toilets

I was so terrified of using the toilets at school I used to poo in my underwear very regularly. Rather than deal with my phobia I found way of doing it without anyone knowing so by the time I got to high school I was doing it virtually every day. A few years after leaving school I discovered it was common knowledge around school but no one bothers saying anything.

Could't hold it

I was out with my girlfriend and only about 1 minute from home when I felt the urge to go. About 30 seconds later I was starting to feel desperate and started pressing my thighs together whilst walking. I didn't say anything to my girlfriend as i still thought I could hold it no problem. Then I started to feel like some was going to come out so I squeezed my butt together as tight as I could but felt a litle bit escape. Now I was getting worried that I was about to have an accident as I was trying my hardest to hold it but it wasn't working. Luckily it stopped and i thought i could still make it without too much damage or it being noticable. We made it to the gate and I felt a big bit of poop come out and she asked if I was ok. I said I needed the loo badly so we get to the door and I feel poop starting to come and i cant hold it and then I start filling my pants and I can feel my pants getting tighter. She then asked if I had an accident as she can see a bulge growing in my pants.

In My Sister's Pants

Last summer when my sister was packing to go to Italy, I purposely took her white bathing suit out of her suitcase to I could use it when I went to the beach with my friends. To make a long story short, when we were leaving the beach I just put my jeans on over my sister's bathing suit and forgot about it. On the way home I had to poop something terrible. When my friend dropped my off home, I ran to the bathroom, but my father was using it. So I ran to the garage, and I took a dump right it my pants. It was very messy. Eventually I was able to go to the bathroom, and nobody knew what I did. But when I pulled my pants down, I realized that I pooped my sister's bathing suit, and it was ruined. I showered and got cleaned up, and I cleaned the bathing suit as good as I could and then I put it in my sister's laundry basket. When my sister came home she asked me if I wore her bathing suit and she said because it looks like you shit in it. I fessed up, and she was very angry at me.

I had a horrible accident when I was in 6th grade. I was in ski club, who every week took a 1 hour bus drive down to the nearest skiing hill in a place called Lake Dodson. About 15 mins into the ride, I started to feel insanely ill. I was hunched over and I threw up into my mouth. My firend who was sitting next to me asked me if I was okay. I hung it out and tried to stay calm. I needed to go to the bathroom really bad but it was over 45 mins before we got to a bathroom. I didn't know what to do. I told my friend I had to go really bad and she just said to hold it. 5 mins past and I was bursting. I could feel watery diahrrea squeezing into my tight jeans. I sneezed and I felt a warm softness on my butt, followed by a huge push and the warm wetness geting bigger. My friend realized I pooped my pants and tried to comfort me, I just cried my eyes out. By the time we got there, the bus smelled like crap, and my jeans where ruined. There was a huge brown stain about that size of a book on them.
