LOL, Kimmie - that happened to me. In a freakin' restaurant, of all places. I must have had a ridiculous expression on my face because my best friend said, "What the heck is wrong with you?" I jetted off to the bathroom, wrapped up my underpants in toilet paper, and threw 'em in the trash! Oh my goodness, it was horrendous!
It's happened once or twice since then. I always go into hysterics about it afterwards. I guess it's either that or cry! I prefer to laugh.
I had this happen to me 2 days ago - I made it............ just. But my goodness I was terrified. I have been getting greadually more occaissions with this feeling, but on Tuesday it was no feeling. Walking home from a cafe with my son after a lovely lunch and didn't think we could get back to his place fast enough.
For me it seems (I hope) to be aggravated by a new med that I've now stopped taking. I hope this doesn't happen again, but I sure admire the attitude you've all taken.

I agree with Dansky. I have a dear friend who got stuck in traffic and then had the horrific experience of having massive D in a parking lot. there was another couple travelling with them and they were less than sympathetic. I no longer speak to them (the unsympathetic couple that is) even though it wasn't my accident. anyway, she calls it a **** kit. So, like Dansky, she carries that everywhere (complete with disposable camping toilet paper and the works) and it has eased her anxiety and it has eased mine as well. I think we've all "not made it" in one way or another. It totally sucks. No doubt. As far as the one bathroom thing, I hate that myself. My longtime bf and I are looking to buy a home or condo and I INSIST on 1.5 bathrooms at least. Even if I'm feeling good, if there is only one bathroom, I immediately begin perseverating on that one fact. My mom, on the other hand, has colitis and very little anxiety about it. She doesn't care how many people are waiting in line! If she's having D, she'll be out when she's good and done, thank you!! :) God bless her. I wish I could adapt more of that attitude. Have a good night. BTW- Dansky, I LOVE that saying you sport under your entries- 'Try Flying lessons. . . ' hahaha. That's just great!!- it makes me smile each time I see it.

Had some problems with this in the late afternoon yesterday. I got my monthly girl thing and then I got stuck in traffic on the way home. Those cramps, along with my road rage almost did me in. I ended up driving illegally in the carpool lane just to rush home as fast as possible. Thank goodness I didn't get pulled over. I probably wouldn't have made it home in time.
