I'm okay with going potty almost anywhere (unless it's unsanitary) but I've never, ever pooped somewhere other than my home. I've never even considered it. I'm just so uncomfortable at my own home that I can't imagine going anywhere else. This is especially concerning because I know that if I go to college in a couple years and I live in a dorm with only public bathrooms, I don't know what I'll do.
I've always been aware about my problem, even when I was really little, but I never really considered that it could be a real mental disorder. I've also never told anybody, and I know that I really need to get help because it's bad and upon doing research today I found that it can lead to serious health issues. I want to talk to my mom about my problem but I'm scared and it's uncomfortable to talk about. I'm also worried that no one will take me seriously because it's a weird problem.
I did research on this topic for the first time today and that's when it dawned on me that I really need help. I read through some of the other stories on this site and started crying really hard when I saw that I wasn't the only one that struggled so hard with this problem. It's so bad for me and I really don't know what to do.
Can anybody help me?
