You know you are an Encopresis child when…

Below are 10 different ways of knowing whether you are an Encopresis child or not. You know you are an Encopresis child when…

1. Certain people’s attitude stink more than you do.

2. You have more bullies than real friends.

3. Bedwetting is socially acceptable, but the opposite is considered socially taboo.

4. No one appears to understand and you feel so alone.

5. How you smell on the outside is not how you are as a person on the inside.

6. Punished for something out of your control is hard to forget.

7. Having a social life is hard to have when no one wants to be social with you.

8. Why me? I didn’t choose this, how is it my fault? Please love me.

9. You physically can’t feel/smell yourself and no one believes that as the truth.

10. You wish and dream that you’re normal, happy and people love you.

There are more but let me know what you think. 🙂

    Excellent list, Dimity, especially numbers 4 and 6. Here are a few I’ve thought of from my memories of my childhood soiling:

    – You can’t go on a trip without wondering if you’ll have an accident.

    – You get used to visiting public toilets when you’ve already ‘done it’.

    – You try to ignore the fact that everyone on the bus knows you’ve messed yourself.

    – When you get undressed you fear looking inside your pants in case they’re dirty.

    – The question you most dread is, ‘Have you dirtied your pants again?’

    – You can’t answer the question, ‘Why do you keep doing it?’

      Thank you James, and I definitely agree with your additions (especially the last one). So true coming from another encopresis survivor. 🙂
