MAGS! I'm SO SORRY!
First of all, you're not alone. I've been married to my DH a year and a half...and I STILL feel weird going with him around. And I'm ALWAYS afraid of passing gas while we're "together"...it's mortifying!!!
I HATE being away from home and needing to have a BM. Growing up, I'd be out with my fam, and I'd have to go (I'm IBS C), and I'd be in the bathroom for an HOUR! I was 5! It was AWFUL! Nowadays, I don't get stuck as long, thank G-d, but I fear the person next to me will here me go (sorry so gross!) So I usually wait until I'm alone. NOT HEALTHY!
School was the worst...I'm glad I'm not a teenager anymore. Now at work it's not fun either...but at least we're all adults.
There were a couple of times last year when my students would be in the bathroom the same time as me. I wanted to crawl into a whole! And when I was REALLY gassy and the kids could smell it.......I was MORTIFIED! A bunch of 5-year-olds saying "Ewwww...what's that smell?!"
You're gonna get through this! I just know it! You're such a STRONG and MOTIVATED gal...you can do ANYTHING Mags!!!
I really have to thank you for posting this.....you've really helped me take a look at my own fears! Thanks Mags! I hope I can also help you out....let me know!
