Kira doesn't like to poop. At all. Kira refuses to poop. IT IS A PROBLEM. She does anything she can to avoid pooping. She holds it in. She sits on the floor with her heel in her butt when she feels like she needs to poop. She sits on the toilet with her legs stretched out stiff in front of her, squeezing her butt closed so she won't poop.
When her mom asks her why she doesn't want to poop, she says, "I don't LIKE to poop." And then she says it hurts to poop. Her Mom tells her that if she poops every day (like a normal person), it won't hurt, and that when she holds it in she just makes it worse. Kira doesn't buy it. And when her Mom tells her that you have to poop or YOU WILL DIE, she doesn't buy that either.
So then Kira and her Mom will play a game. Mom will ask her, "Who else poops?" And Kira will list out every single person she knows (and some animals). But she still doesn't want to have anything to do with pooping.
My sister says this issue has been going on for 2.5 years. The longest Kira has gone without pooping is 7 days. SEVEN DAYS. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By the time she finally poops it is MASSIVE and it is a butt-cutter, so that just reinforces Kira's thinking that she does not want to poop. IT IS AN ENDLESS CYCLE.
ACK! This freaks me out! It fascinates me! I don't know how to resolve this issue! My sister has tried everything, even enemas. UGH!!!!
Have any of you heard of this type of thing before? If so, how was it RESOLVED?????
