I'm Really Curious About This (but it's a personal question)

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
I must go within about five minutes of me realizing. I have another friend who says, "Let me go the bathroom before we leave so I don't get stuck somewhere where I can't go." I cannot MAKE myself go if I don't have to, either. Similarly, my daughter can hold it for quite a while.

Sorry, I know it's a really personal question, but I'd like to hear what you all have to say.

    If I'm in a place where I can go, I go. If not, I hold it.

    It depends.

    Before I got pregnant, I could hold it for as long as I needed to.

    While pregnant, I started to figure that keeping all that **** inside wouldn't be good for the baby, so I started being more at ease with going...esp. at work.

    I literally cannot hold it. I will find a place, no matter where I am.

    Most I can hold but there are days or "situations" where I go where I can but I do not like to do so at other peoples homes.

    Most of the time when I have to go I have to go, no matter where I may be.

    When I gotta go, I gotta go. If I absolutely have to, I can hold it, but I'll be pretty miserable.

    I must be alone, which is especially bad if I'm in a public bathroom, or I literally can not go at all. It sucks. :(

    I can hold it till doomsday. Amazingly, the urge actually subsides after a while. I have "shy bowel" and cannot go #2 in public places anyway. I'm pretty regular usually, so it's not generally a problem. Even when I get "bubble guts" and have no place to go, I have been known to hold it inside until the urge literally goes away...where the "bubbles" go, I have no idea. Before I realized that I am lactose intolerant, this used to happen to me frequently at work. I have a sphincter of steel, now, as a result. :lol:

    TMI shy bowel story: On a long road trip I suddenly developed a severe case of "bubble guts" and thought I would not make it to a bathroom. When we finally reached a mini mart with a bathroom, I knew I was in trouble. There was only one bathroom, and it was for both men/women, so I knew someone would be needing it soon, and would probably be standing outside the door, waiting and hearing everything that went on. I had previously had to go so bad that I had the cramps, chills and goosebumps; I literally thought I was going to explode. Once I got into the stall, I just could. not. go. It didn't seem possible after the show my bowels had put on in the car. Miserable, I gave up and went back to the car. The remaining 4 hours of the trip were uneventful, but DAMN was I glad to get home.

    I cannot believe I just shared that story AND forgot to vote.

    Enough info for ya? :lol:

    When I got to go I got to go. The only time I was ever able to hold it for any period of time was when we were out shopping at K-mart (don't ask me why I never shop there) and I had to go so I went into the bathroom and it was discusting I mean poop all over the walls just nasty so I complained to Customer Service and they showed me where the employ bathroom was and said I could use that one I went in and walked back out because that one wasn't any better. So I waited until we got to another store

    Depends on what I've been eating :oops:
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    a normal one i can hold for a while after i get that first sensation. so if i'm out and about and know i'll be home in an hour or so, i'll hold it.

    a menstrual one (i usually make them more frequently during my period) i can hold for 10-15 minutes comfortably, then i gotta go.

    a rumbly tummy one due to bad food or illness, i won't hold and will part from it in a public restroom, at work, gas station, etc. you get the picture.

    and for additional information that you didn't ask for, i usually make 2 a day (first thing in the morning, and late in the evening). during my period, i may make an additional one in the early afternoon.

    i eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast and get plenty of fluids, so i'm quite regular.

    carry on! :wink:

    I'll add to that. When I'm not pregnant I poop like all the time. My husband always tells me he's never seen anyone who poops as much as me. But when I'm pregnant the prenatal vitamins make not have to go much I've even gone a day without going at all. Oh and I also go more when on my period

    What she said. Sometimes its mind over matter. The other day I was on a two-hour drive to another town and almost immediately after leaving the house, I felt like I wanted to go...we couldnt stop ---I wasnt driving...so I HAD to wait until we go to our destination. funny thing is, when I got there, I didnt feel like I really wanted to go. Oh wait, I just re-read the topic ---I'm talking about # 1 here. I pretty much only do #2 at home. I cant go if I really dont want to either.

    When I was a kid I could hold it forever. But once I developed Crohn's disease it's been a challenge. Even during my roughest days with this illness I never had cramping but would get sudden feelings of fullness in the bowel and I had two minutes to evacuate it or else I'd have an accident.

    I'm better now but still can't hold it for very long. If I've got to go, I go. Example...looking at a house with your real estate agent and excusing yourself so you can use the owners bathroom. Stink it out, and then pray he doesn't want to go in there.

    The smell of "Lovely" perfume, a walk in the woods, hardware stores, and eating anything from Burger King sends me to the bathroom too.
