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.

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.
