I don't want to appear disgusting but:

I have Irritable bowel syndrome as part of the damage (not sure if it's mentally or psychosomatic) from 38yrs of bulimia.

Sometimes I self evacuate(medical term) Ie. put a plastic glove on and put my hand up my bum until the poos comes out. The doctor says it doesn't damage you but I guess he means if you do it once a month.


In some IBS books they recommend this eat an apple then have a strong cup of coffee. Not a appealing breakfast but I have found this works.

MY Question

Is anyone else out there putting their hand up their bum to get faeces out?
