i'm currently approaching 18 years old and my anxiety about defacating in a public restroom has left me home for the past 5 months. i've always had this problem but it recently hit its peak when i was actually forced to defacate while at school. ever since i've been having panic attacks when i start to feel my stomach 'hurt' in public because i feel someone will hear, smell, or talk about what i just did in the bathroom. i feel i have IBS because i am always constipated and when my stomach does hurt it really hurts and i usually end up going to the bathroom 4 or 5 times within a half hour and its ugly .... i was just curious to know what anyone else does and if they have somewhat of the same problem?
