Re: holding it in
Terribly unhealthy. I had a phobia about public restrooms when I was a child and teenager, and I'm paying for it now with diverticulitis, colon surgery, constipation and diarrhea, colon pain...I wish I'd just gone ahead and gone!
You need to fix this before you do permanent damage. Drink at least 64 ounces of water (water, not soda, not energy drinks, not beer lol) every day, take a soluble fiber supplement daily, and eat your fruits and vegetables. And when you need to go, just go!
