Dyspraxia and bowel/toilet problems

Post by firemonkey » Fri Jul 13, 2018 6:59 am

Referring to these two articles https://thesensitivegut.com/2016/12/20/ ... d-as-well/ and https://gilldixon.blogspot.com/2018/07/ ... iadcd.html

I have always been prone to constipation but never connected it to dyspraxia . On quite a few occasions I've done such large ones that I've blocked the toilet. With regards to the second article: Wiping myself properly has always been an issue. As has been positioning my bum on the toilet seat to avoid marking the toilet bowl when I go.

Moved to Day to Day living
Constipation and stool state is also going to be heavily influenced by diet. Equally anxiety can and will also have an influence on how/when. Some people like to take their time and read the paper after deploying the VI Poo and waiting for nature to take it's course. I just punish the porcerlain and get out!

Continental WCs tend to have a shelf so you can inspect before flushing

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.

I think it is related to Dyspraxia and co-ordination difficulties. I think I have IBS but dyspraxia doesn't help as I also struggle with wiping. And I suffer with constipation and it doesn't seem to be related to my diet.
