Tried it! I'm not sure that it's a great plan to force your body to work. Doesn't really solve the psychological problem, does it? However, I have physical problems, which prevent me from doing this now, so maybe I'm feeling mean! I just think that we have to deal with the mental issue and, maybe, accept that we are more uncomfortable with bodily functions than others are. I'm beginning to think that there may be more of us who feel this way than don't. I'm married to a man who, although he feels slightly embarrassed defaecating in 'public' doesn't let it stop him from doing it. His view is, "If you have to go, you go". Would that I could feel as he does. I resent him, terribly, because of this, because, deep down inside, I feel that people like us are, sort of, right. Cutting to the chase - do I sound clever here? - it smells, doing it can be heard and it takes longer than urinating. Maybe, just maybe, we are a little more considerate of others' feelings, or am I, once again, trying to find a reason for my problem?
I think that you are pretty smart and I, for one, appreciate your input. It's always positive and helpful.
