Holding on to..

    I'll cut to the chase here. When I need to go for a poo, I hold onto it until I have to go. I've been like this for many years & it's really starting to get to me. I'm 40 now & do not want to be doing this when I'm 50!
    There is a ritual that goes with it. When I feel like I need to poo, I go into the bedroom, take off my trousers & lie on my side. Some times & sorry if this graphic I pick hairs out of my anal region. This is all in preparation for getting the bowels moving. Other times I get down in a squat position until I feel something moving. But I hold onto it..I don't go straight into the toilet to poo. I hold onto it until I really have to let go. Then eventually I go. It's mentally & physically exhausting. I can't seem to go naturally. I've been to doctors, psychiatrist's, Chinese medicine etc & nothing has helped. It's very hard to explain to anyone what I go through. My partner is used to it & thinks it's weird which it is.
    At this stage I'm at my wits end, it really affects everyday life..I can be constipated for days which is really horrible & uncomfortable. I don't know if this is the right topic thread to post in but I'm desperate to see if anyone else has this.
    All I want to do is **** normally!!
    Any advice would be extremely welcome

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
