TF,

There are a couple of things I think about as I read your posts.

First of all, it sounds like there is no one in your life you feel you can trust. I mean, if I thought I smelled bad, there are people in my life I know would tell me the truth, people I trust. My therapist is one of them.

Secondly, I do want to tell you that drinking lots of water is very important. I don't know what it could do for your scent, but for physical and mental health, it's essential. If you are constipated, deal with that, talk with your docs about it, and deal with it. More water and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables would probably solve that.

Last, if I were you, I would gently ask myself what it means to me to smell like feces. I would ask myself what the point would be of people lying, and what that means to me.

If you were my friend, and you asked me to be honest, I promise you I would be. I think it's a very good idea to print your posts and take them to your therapist or doctor. You sound as if you really really need to get a straight answer about this.

Take care, TF.
