what happens when you hold poop in?
Honey Monster asks:
Why is it the longer I hold my turds in, the worse they smell and the softer they get?
Thanks for the question!
Your poop is getting even with you for holding it hostage in there. Poop is meant to come out, not linger around in a smelly, dark passageway like that.
Just imagine how you would like it. Poo has feelings, too. Free your poo--don't hold it in.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
