Consider approaching recovery from shy bowel syndrome aka SBS like this... When it comes down to it, SBS is the result of a fear. Perhaps it is a fear that somebody will know you are shitting, or a fear that shitting will make you late for something, or a fear that you simply will be uncomfortable if you don't shit. The tape I listened to discussed the idea of "forgetting fears". Throughout our lives, we have each had a variety of fears that were only temporary. For example, after I saw the movie "Scream" as a young boy, I was terrified to be in my house when all the lights were off. However, this fear only lasted for a few weeks and then wore off. So why should SBS be any different? If we can forget fears such as monsters in our closet, talking to the opposite sex, or living away from home, then we can definitely forget out fears in the bathroom. I think this is a very interesting concept and makes me very hopeful to overcome my personal SBS.
