I'll begin this by saying I've started smelling like poop in seventh grade. I am a junior now in high school, and this has ruined my life. I can't gain any new friends now because of this stench. Often many of my classmates make rude comments about my smell. When I sit next to someone they put their hand over their nose to cover it or they sigh very loudly. I feel so guilty. I'm in cross country and the leader of many clubs. I wonder why this is happening to me, I've tried everything. I have a boyfriend since eighth grade and I know he knows I smell. I know how much pity he feels for me, it's horrible. For my birthday he's given me body mist and lotions. I wear them, but it just makes it worse. My best friend also never tells me nothing about it. One time I went over to her house and we were discussing the setting order for her sweet sixteen, her cousin(lets call me, "D") said "okay, you can sit in the middle of me and "D" even though I'll still be able to smell her. I'm so done with this smell, I can't do anything without someone turning their head from me. My family even sigh loudly and I feel so bad I just want to cry. I usually have thoughts of killing myself because of this! My freshman year I spent my lunch period in the bathroom stall. I also did not eat for 2 months because I thought it was because i wasn't cleaning myself well and I wouldn't have to poop I have a healthy diet now, but it doesn't help. What sucks the most is when my period hits I smell horrible. I myself cannot smell myself but others can. I shower two times a day, and always brush my teeth and wear deodorant. Even after I shower and my boyfriend picks me up his sister usually comments "wow, now the car smells bad". I 'm surprised he's still with me so is my best friend. I'm afraid of telling my doctor about this, because they might laugh at me. I'm tired of living like this. Please, help.
