I just pooped in the shower. I hate moments like this. Bent over and boom--cramped up, butt spazzed, and wham. Then my peri anal/vaginal fistulas burned and itched and I was trying to avoid stepping in it and trying to wipe at the same time. yuck. I've had some squirts before but this was the grossest. Anyway, this is about the only place I can admit this. Trying to remember that it will happen again and I'm lucky it happened in an easy place to clean it up. And that I wasn't in one of the hotel showers that doesn't drain and leaves water up to your ankles.

Yikes... :(... Sorry to hear that, sammies...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

I had this happen while in the bath and couldnt get out quick enough (I was reaching forward for body wash).We have heavy water restrictions and the family all wanted know why I needed to jump into the shower from the bath, so I grossed them out with the truth - that will teach them for being so nosey!
At least we can get a laugh out of our own misfortune.
Take care, Jo

I'm sorry to hear of your mishap - but the silver lining was that you were in the best spot to clean up afterwards -lol!

I fear having the same thing happen in a public place. I like swimming, and I've raced to the bathroom with my butt cheeks squeezed sooooo tightly, I'm duck-walking instead of dashing. Trying to get out of a wet bathing suit while squeezing the cheeks is an adventure. It's embarrasing, but it beats a big squirt! I've had a few really close calls.
This site is so good for sharing our "moments". Thanks for sharing yours. It's strangly conforting to know this happens to others too!

This is so funny!!!! I had a terrible night....almost missed the loo a couple of times rushing in the dark. I was feeling so "crappy" today, (Pun intended)....but seems you guys have had a worst time of it.... Made me laugh out loud tho...thank you , thank you , thank you. It's the bending over, and reaching for the soap part that gets me... I haven't had an accident in a little while...but watch ...God will punish me for laughing at someone else's misfortune. I better start doing butt cheek squeezing exercises, because it never fails....just when you're saying HA!HA! HA!. BAM! .

Oh so sorry this happened to you. And glad you were not in one of those hotel showers that do not drain! That made me laugh. I had to rush to the potty this morning for fear of an accident in my jammies.... Hubby ignores the mad dashes to the toilet now

Marie-Claire, I know what you mean, we might need to be careful for laughing.

I haven't yet learned how to laugh at it yet...that stuff just makes me cry. I'll keep trying to get a sense of humor about it. Thanks for sharing. It helps all of us feel less alone.

Sooooo sorry Sammies . . . wow what a topic!!

ummmmm *blush* this happened to me in the hospital once. My room mate was in the bathroom and I had to urgently find a bathroom out in the hall. I walked into a room I thought was a bathroom . . . but it was a shower W/O a toilet!!! AKKKKKK!!!! I had no choice but to aim it at the shower drain and . . . then figure out how to grrrrrrind it down the drain with enough water to get it down. Ewwwwwww!!! I almost had that wiped out of my mind!! But Noooooooooo!!!!!

Stomach turned but still laughing!!
