Hi Toni, I have had the embarassing accidents, luckily it always happens at home. Once my hubby was sitting right there, and he laughed but he also cleaned it up for me. I laughed too-what else could I do? It is scary when we lose control of our bowels--I mean I didn't have any warning!

I think what happens with your laxatives is your body becomes used to them? I know there is a warning on them about addiction. But that's not even the worst part. When people take laxatives daily, they are flushing out all the good flora in the intestines, and the nutrients too! I would imagine that would open you/me/anyone taking these regularly, to all sorts of nasty infections and illnesses.

The ideal is to get off these totally or find out what the problem is and fix it. Is that possible in your case? I am hoping to God it is, in mine. Gina
