PLEASE Help me!
I am an 18 year old male who has been in college for 3 weeks now. I am slightly overweight, My diet is okay, I drink Benefiber in the morning. I usually eat out about 3 times a week, but mostly just subways when I eat out.
My problem is that I ALWAYS have to use the bathroom before I start class, and it REALLY hits me hard, to the point where I am sweating nonstop and I am basically a turtle when it comes to going up the stairs. This really ticks me off because before and after school, I am perfectly fine, yet when I am about 5 minutes away from entering class I always get this urge to use the bathroom. Then I am faced with a dilemma. Either I miss class and go home to use the bathroom (not something I do not want to do but it has happen 4 times in the past 3 weeks), use the school bathroom and be late to class (I am effy about using the school bathroom and don't like being late), or hold it in class(something I can barely do, I end up leaving in the middle of the class). I also notice that around this time, when I do use the bathroom, my stool is very soft, and light brown. Another problem that I notice is that right before I leave my house to go to school, I get extremely gassy. Also, no I'm not afraid to go to school or anything, a friend suggested that it might be because I get stressed out at the thought of going to school, so my body reacts by wanting to defecate. I doubt this is true, since I don't get stressed on the way to school. I try defecating before I leave to class, but I found it extremely hard to do so, well because I don't have to go, and I know its bad to use force so I can defecate, so I avoid it.
Are there any techniques or tips that I use so I can void having to use the bathroom during school? Any advice is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
