    Re: Bullying

    Being in the final year of Junior school reminded me of this poor lad in the same class as myself who had been diagnosed with encopresis (faecal soiling) and he was called names as a result - he was often found crying in a corner of the room. I decided to stick up for him and become his friend at playtimes so that he had someone to talk to - he left the school halfway during either the spring or summer term to go to a more specialist school which could support him better than he his previous school could.

    There was one moment when we were going back into the classroom and one lad said "ugh, it stinks in here", in which the teacher was not pleased about. Even after he left, some of the kids used an unofficial nickname for the boy.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

        This was in the late 1980s - ironically, I had a similar problem myself but it was very mild and not at all noticeable - as early as November 1987 it happened, possibly due to school, and I knew that it was school-related as the final one was the year that I left in 1994.

        I found a copy of a letter from my comprehensive school dated June 1993 and was addressed to a specialist my local hospital when accessing copies of my hospital medical records and mentioned that my then GP at the time diagnosed a similar condition along with school refusal.
