does anyone else with chronic constipation have hardtime going to the bathroom fast or bathroom anxiety? i cant use public bathrooms i just cant ever seem to go when im in them unless im having a flare up even then its hard to. and even when im in my bathroom in my house it takes me a good while to get my body to feel like i can poop unless i rushed to the bathroom and made it just in time. sometimes i sit on the toilet for like an hour, i looked up how long an average bowel movement should be and it said a couple seconds thats just never been how my bodys done it, do other people who have chronic constipation feel similarly?

      yeah I didn’t feel comfortable using the restroom at work so I always became so sick I had to take so much time away that they fire me

    I’ve recently realized that my chronic constipation is either causing or is caused by my general anxiety. I’ve also realized that I may be autistic but that’s a different story and may not apply to you.

      im autistic too! and i think my anxiety may have a factor in my constipation but i dont think its causing it cause i was born with it

        since birth? I’ve had it ever since I can remember really but my mother said I never used to have an issue very interesting

    Wow, this may sound stupid but I didn’t even realize they were connected. By body will not use the restroom (1 or 2) if someone is waiting on me to finish, or if I’m in a public restroom and someone else is in there. I don’t have any advice but I totally feel your pain!!! 😥

    I think there are parts of our brains, as autistics, that aren’t supposed to be connected to each other, or rather aren’t in allistic people
