Super long string like object in my stool :(

This is so gross, but today I passed a super long stringy thing in my stool. Normally I would say it was mucus, but it was strong and solid. It looked like actual lining of my intestine, a parasite or maybe Candida? I have no idea, I took pictures. Please help!

Sounds like tapeworm or something, you should get checked out by your GP.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  It is probably not a tapeworm as those are pretty rare and it is more likely something else.  I would recommend seeing a doctor and getting a stool sample done.
