A woman has revealed she spends an hour wiping herself off after pooping because she suffers from ‘endless wiping syndrome’.
At the start of the post, the anonymous woman, who shared her confession in the True Off My Chest subreddit, said, “I feel like my bowel movement anxiety has made my life miserable.”
She added, “For some reason, every time I don’t use a bidet to wash my bum, I suffer from endless wiping syndrome. Without a bidet, it literally takes 40 minutes to an hour of constant wiping for the toilet paper to wipe off. come back clean.
“After the first few wipes, the toilet paper will come back with a thin brown line (i.e. the brown crayon) for the next 30 minutes. I don’t understand how this is possible.
“And before anyone asks me, yes, I use wet wipes. And yes, even with the wet wipes, I’m still stuck in the toilet.
The anxious poo noted that at home she had a bidet – a bowl made to be sat on to wash the genitals, perineum, inside of the buttocks and anus – however, when she was forced living in a dorm and sharing a bathroom with others, she felt awful “spending almost an hour pooping.”
She added: “I then bought an electric travel bidet, which I still use whenever I have to travel. For those of you unfamiliar with these things, you’ll basically fill the tank with water from the tap before you leave, and usually people can clean themselves with a tank’s worth of washes.
” But not me. Even with the travel bidet, I have to refill it ten times before my wet wipes come back perfectly clean.
“Again, I don’t know how that’s possible – is my ass just built differently? This is going to sound silly, but my pooping and wiping problem caused me so much pain that I resorted to self-harm on several occasions, and even contemplated suicide at one point.

She explained, “I also live in an area where bidets aren’t that common, so traveling makes me really anxious. In fact, I’m going to be staying at a friend’s house for the next few days, but I’m terrified of pooping.
“Yeah sure, I’ll have my travel bidet and wet wipes with me, but I’m afraid my friend will notice I take those things with me when I go to poop and he’ll be disgusted by the makes me spend what I feel. like a million years of washing and cleaning myself in the toilet.
