What do I do about this??!?!!?!!

Okay, I've been constipated for about 12 days, maybe longer.

I think I can go to the bathroom but it will be hard to get out, Ive ate 2 laxative's and drank afew cups of water. What do I do if i cant?

Sometimes I can go but I'm always scared that its going to hurt or its not all going to come out and it will be stuck there and i wouldn't know what to do!

Im scared of having a BM this sucks!

Avoid foods that cause constipation... Milk, cheese, white flour,fried foods, beef....
Take something with fiber like Metamucel.
Drink lots of water, preferably warm
Take stool softeners or use suppositories.

It sounds as though you need to be on a consistent daily fiber intake to keep you regular.

Mind you, I'm not a doctor, but is this something recent or a continuing problem? You said 12 days, the later typed 6 months...
I had a daughter go through this in grade school. When she did go, OMG!!! Only took like 4 or 5 flushes!!! Tried softeners, juices, fiber tablets, everything you can think of. (She was only going very 7-10 days) Later her doctor and I thought it was the stress of me going back to work; I wouldn't be home all the time when the kids got home! Are you having any type of stress lately? Just an idea. I'd check with my doctor if this continues. You have to be so uncomfortable by now. Good luck.
P.S. You mentioned you are scared to have a BM? Why would you in the first place?
