Success! and a possible cure??

I've been on the medication Lexapro and it seems to make me a bit less stressed... I had diarrhea the other day and I was at the library and I simply went and sat on the toilet and a bit of the diarrhea came out. This is a breakthrough for me (not sure whether to attribute it to the medication use or the diarrhea). I have pretty bad toilet phobia and wonder if I'll ever get married... However I've been seeing a psychiatrist who is awesome and she suggested that I get botox injections in my bum in order to release the anal sphincters. So she is looking for a neurologist who can do this for me... basically I told her that when I wipe myself there's still soiling on the toilet paper and I use a lot of it, and I also told her that it feels like I've never completely emptied myself after I poop. She said (in addition to the psychological aspect) I have something called "fecal impaction" (or chronic constipation). So the medication will work on my brain, the cognitive/behavioural will work on my thoughts/actions, and the botox will work on my anal sphincters.. how cool is that??! If I go ahead with the procedure and it's a success I will let ya'll know!
