Does your daily Bowel Movement (Poop!) control your day?

Yes it is another Poop question. I am very consistent with my BM's and go everyday after breakfast and on occasion in the afternoon. However, I find that at times when I am rushing and don't have time to go or don't have a complete BM because i am rushing then the rest of my day is very different. I am uncomfortable and bloated and therefore irritable and just not the same. I also tend to "plan" my mornings around my BM schedule, meaning I don't generally go out for breakfast or even skip breakfast in fear that my day will be ruined because of the previously mentioned symptoms. I have always heard that consistent BM's is a good thing.

Anyone else suffer from the mental distraction of your scheduled BM's and how do you deal with the days you are not consistent??

I'm not sure why this thread was closed. Pooping is part of digestion, which is very much Paleo-related. If someone doesn't poop easily (maybe because they are prone to constipation), then creating the optimal circumstances for pooping is gonna be a big deal for them. I have IBS, and I am also in lots of discomfort if I miss that window of opportunity.

It's not appropriate to treat medical problems like this using this forum. Anxiety about pooping also has nothing to do with paleo...

As the one who posted the question I was confused as well. I see that it was closed after you had time to post that I needed a psychologist. Just because you do not experience this doesn't mean others do not.

I don't quite understand why this question was closed. It is as legit as others I have seen on here. Herman was only asking whether others experience this anxiety, and as it is very much related to diet and lifestyle, I think it is appropriate for this forum. Herman, I experience the same anxiety often. When I keep my diet locked in, I usually don't have the issues and don't get "off." I have learned to deal with being off better, however, since adopting a paleo diet.

Herman, my husband is very much like this especially because he really only likes to poop on his toilet. We've driven home from a 2 hour away destination because he had to poop. Consistent BMs are a good thing, but your life shouldn't revolve around them. You need to learn to poop other places or deal with the rest of the day being off.

Yes, this happens to me, but ONLY if I eat something that causes intestinal inflammation. In other words, since I started eating Paleo, this is no longer an issue. However, when I was veggie, my entire day was dictated by whether or not I went to the bathroom. You need to look at your diet and see what's triggering this intestinal discomfort in you. In my case, it was grains and caffeine. Good luck!

Is this even a real question?

I would see a psychologist or doctor about this issue.

No. I think I feel bloated because I usually have a large BM and the absence of that causes the bloating.

You shouldn't feel bloated. Do you eat dairy products?
